Sinus disease was once considered as incurable but with the advent of latest equipments and better drugs availability, its now almost curable. The availability of endoscopes, high resolution camera, microdebrider and more sophisticated instruments the results are outstanding, and not to forget the better drugs available like steroid sprays and antihistamines. Orange Dental and ENT Care Centre, Snore and Sinus Clinic has the provision of latest technology to cure all possible sinus problems. Our doctors have a broad range of experience and expertise in diagnosing and managing general sinus cases as well as more complex sinus conditions.

How SINUS works?

The nose and sinuses are a part of the upper respiratory tract. The function of the nose in addition to smell is to warm, humidify and filter air that passes through it. The external nose consists of a bony and cartilaginous framework. The nostrils, or anterior nares, form the external opening to the nose. The nasal septum is a midline internal structure that separates the left and right nasal cavities. It is composed of cartilage and bone. A deviated nasal septum can cause nasal obstruction.
There are four sets of paired sinuses. The maxillary sinuses are located beneath the cheeks and under the eyes. The frontal sinuses are above the eyes behind the forehead. The ethmoids are honeycomb shaped sinuses located between the eyes and the sphenoid sinuses are located behind the nose and below the brain. Each of these sinuses is an enclosed space that drains through an ostium or opening into the nose. The sinuses are lined by mucosa that is similar to the lining of the nose. These ostia can become blocked by inflammation or swelling of the mucosa as well as by tumors or bony structures.
The lateral nasal wall internally contains the three turbinate bones.These scroll-like structures are covered in a mucous membrane that contains vascular channels which can swell under certain conditions, such as allergy or inflammation. The tear duct or nasolacrimal duct drains tears from the eyes into the nose where it enters beneath the inferior turbinate. Blockage of this duct from injury or disease causes excess tearing of the eye, or epiphora.

Common sinus problems

Deviated nasal sseptum CSF leak
Turbinate hypertrophy’ Nasal duct blockage (watering from Eyes)
Rhinosinusitis Nasal tumours
Sinonasal polyposis Orbital decompression

Deviated Nasal Septum


Nasal septal deviations are common, and it is rare for doctors to see a perfectly straight nasal septum--the dividing line of cartilage between your two nostrils. 
Tubinate hypertrophy is due to an enlargement of the turbinates- the small structures within your nose that cleanse and humidify air as it passes through your nostrils into your lungs.
Symptoms of septal deviations/turbinate hypertrophy
• Congested or blocked nasal breathing
• Breathing trouble at night and snoring
• Chronic nosebleeds
• Chronic sinus infections
Causes of septal deviations/turbinate hypertrophy
septal deviation are usually by birth or with a history of trauma.
Turbinate hypertrophy may be due to allergy or by recurrent infection leading to inflammation, at times it may be due to overuse of nasal drops (Oxymetazoline or Xylometazoline)

Diagnosis of septal deviations/turbinate hypertrophy
Diagnosing septal deviations/turbinate hypertrophy will include the following:

  • Physical examination.
  • Computed tomography (CT) scans.
  • Nasal Endoscopy
Nasal steroids sprays can be used for problems associated with nasal septal deviations and turbinate hypertrophy. These medications help to reduce mucosal inflammation and therefore decongest the nose improving nasal breathing. 
However when the septum or turbinate bony structures are causing nasal obstruction or medications fail to improve symptoms, surgery is often required. This surgery may involve straightening the septum (septoplasty) or turbinate reduction (turbinoplasty).

We at Orange have latest technology and infrastructure to diagnose and treat these problems. We have latest instruments, endoscopes and machinery(microdebrider) to make this surgery a simple and to give complete relief to the patient. The surgery is done endoscopically completely inside the nose.


Rhinosinusitis, or sinusitis, is a condition involving inflammation in one or more of the paranasal sinuses. Acute sinusitis is inflammation usually caused by an infection lasting less than 4 weeks.  Acute sinusitis usually resolves with medical therapy including antibiotics. Chronic sinusitis is sinonasal inflammation lasting for more than 12 weeks and can be cause by multiple factors.
The following symptoms are associated with rhinosinusitis:

• Nasal congestion • Nasal discharge • Postnasal drip • Facial pressure or pain • Decreased sense of smell • Cough • Fever

Recurrent sinusitis and chronic sinusitis can cause long-term symptoms that can negatively impact a person’s quality of life. Chronic inflammation of the mucosal lining in the nose and sinuses may lead to the formation of nasal polyps in severe cases. Surgery can be effective in eliminating these symptoms if adequate medical therapy fails.


  • Physical examination.
  • Computed tomography (CT) scans.
  • Nasal Endoscopy
  • In some cases laboratory tests are obtained for patients with:
    • Suspected allergies
    • Cystic fibrosis
    • Immune deficiencies


  • Medical therapy including sino-nasal irrigation, antibiotics and nasal steroids are often combined with oral steroids to improve or eliminate sinonasal symptoms.
  • Surgery is indicated for patients with persistent sinusitis despite adequate medical therapy and severe nasal polyps caused by chronic inflammation.
