Nasal polypsNasal polyps are non-cancerous growths that develop on the lining of the nose or sinuses. They can occur in varying sizes and hang on the nasal or sinus lining like teardrops. Nasal polyps may not always cause symptoms, however, large polyps can lead to blockage in the nasal passage, loss of smell and breathing problems. Our ENT experts offer personalised treatments in the form of medication and surgery.
SinusitisSinusitis is a condition that causes inflammation or swelling of the tissues present in the lining of the sinus. There are different types of sinusitis including acute bacterial, chronic sinusitis and recurrent acute sinusitis. This swelling in the sinuses can be caused by the common cold, allergies, nasal polyps, deviated septum and a compromised immune system. Treatment is dependent on the severity of symptoms and includes decongestants, medications, increasing fluid intake and use of nasal sprays.
Nasal obstructionNasal obstruction or congestion can occur from a blockage in the nasal passage. It is a symptom of an underlying health concern that can further cause change in voice, nasal drainage, difficulty in breathing through the nose and recurrent sinus infections. Our ENT specialists use advanced diagnostic tools to detect the cause of nasal obstruction and treat the same with medication or minimally invasive surgical treatments.
Deviated septumThe septum is the cartilage and bone in your nose. A deviated septum is a condition in which the nasal septum between the two nasal passages is displaced at one side, making one nasal septum smaller than the other. A deviated septum can cause nasal obstruction, nosebleeds and facial pain. Treatment includes management of symptoms and surgical repair of the nose.
NosebleedsNosebleed is a condition that causes the loss of blood from the tissue in the lining of the nose. It is an alarming but rarely a serious condition. Nosebleeds can occur in anyone including children, adults and pregnant women. There are several reasons behind this condition including cold, sinusitis, allergic rhinitis, exposure to chemical irritants and deviated septum. Our ENT specialists provide personalised guidance on how to manage nosebleeds at home. Treatment is based on the underlying cause and includes nasal packing, medication, foreign body removal and surgical repair.

Chronic sinusitis can impair your quality of life significantly. However, sinusitis can be permanently treated effectively with the proper prescription, medical guidance and use of saline irrigation, antibiotics and immunotherapy.
Sinus drainage can hinder your sleep. Sleeping in the lateral position (side-sleeping) is considered among the best positions to help reduce sinus drainage. It is because side-sleeping decreases the pull of gravity on your throat muscles allowing smoother breathing.
Sinus infection, if not treated timely and appropriately, can cause various complications including a brain abscess or meningitis. These complications can pose a significant threat to your life and impact your quality of living.
The number of times you can rinse your sinuses depends on the amount of nasal congestion you have. You should start with one irrigation per day and can do it three times, mostly.
