Sinusitis is an infection in the bony spaces around the face. Common symptoms include discolored drainage, face pain, cough, and postnasal drip.
Surgery when needed is performed at the hospital. State-of-the-art instruments are used including video endoscopes, shavers, and computer-aided imaging and navigation. Dr. Rosner has performed hundreds of successful sinus operations with excellent results and few complications.
