ENT Care in Bay Area


Sinusitis is infection or inflammation of the paranasal sinuses (often just referred to as “sinuses”), which are air-filled spaces that surround the nasal cavity. Common symptoms of sinusitis include nasal congestion, nasal drainage, facial pressure or fullness, and a decreased sense of smell.

Nasal Polyps & Allergies

Nasal polyps are watery-appearing swellings that arise from the lining of the nasal and sinus cavities. They are found more commonly in patients with allergies, chronic sinusitis, and asthma.

Nasal & Sinus Surgery

Nasal and/or sinus surgery may be indicated for treatment of a variety of common conditions that we see at the California Sinus Centers.

Sinus Tumors & CSF Leaks

Tumors within the nasal or sinus cavities can be benign (not cancer) or malignant (cancer). Their treatment varies greatly based on type of tumor, location and size.

A tear in the brain lining (called the dura) and the bone separating the sinuses from the brain can result in a drainage of fluid called cerebrospinal fluid or CSF. A CSF leak can occur from many different sources.

Balloon Sinuplasty™

alloon Sinuplasty™ technology is a FDA-cleared, endoscopic, catheter-based system for patients suffering from sinusitis. Often it is used in cases of early sinusitis – before polyps have developed and in the office setting. It is used in the OR in a few cases where the anatomy is very narrow.

Conditions and Treatments

While our practice is primarily restricted to disorders of the nose and sinuses we do treat some other non-surgical ENT conditions.
