Inflamed sinus passages often cause sinus pressure, pain, and headaches. If severe enough, inflamed sinus passages are referred to as chronic sinusitis, which is the build-up of fluid in the nasal passages. The fluid build-up causes severe pain and pressure around the nose and head. Chronic sinusitis can become difficult to manage and sometimes requires you to take several types of medication. In some severe cases, chronic sinusitis could require surgery for you to find relief.

Just a short drive from Vestavia Hills, Alabama, Dr. Robertson is dedicated to helping you find relief from your chronic sinusitis.
