What’s the Diagnosis? Patient Presents with Chronic Sinusitis and this Finding…Saddle Nose.

Sinusitis Problems New York NY

If you suffer from chronic sinus infections, you know the pain involved with multiple repeated visits to your doctor. If you have chronic disease, please be your own advocate and find out why. The root causes may be an underlying autoimmune disorder, or your pain may be a saddle nose deformity. Saddle nose is a condition that also can have many root causes. It is best to get to the beginnings of this condition for ultimate treatment.

Saddle nose may be caused from other infections, such as syphilis or rhinocerical, which is a bacterial disease. These conditions can cause tearing of the nasal passage leading to deteriorating changes. Saddle nose can also result from radiotherapy, or as a complication of surgery.

Sinus Infections-Acute or Chronic?

Learning the cause of the infections is a crucial first step toward finding relief. Living with one sinus infection after another can mean living with chronic pain and congestion. There are treatments for recurrent sinus infections, but their effectiveness depends on getting at the source of the illness. In these cases, nasal polyps may be to blame.

These microscopic cavities deep in the sinus tissue are small, grapelike growths. Nasal polyps are soft, painless and noncancerous growths on the lining of your nasal passages or sinuses. They hang down like teardrops and result from chronic inflammation associated with asthma, recurring infection, allergies, drug sensitivity or certain immune disorders.

Inflammation of the Nasal Vessels

Atrophic or declining rhinitis, or sinus infections, can also result from long-standing inflammation of the nasal passages. This condition causes the tell-tale signs of sinus headache, pressure, pain and swelling around your eyes, cheeks, nose or forehead. A buildup of this thickening and swelling can also cause difficulty breathing through your nose.

If you have suffered with chronic sinusitis, do not go through another painful bout without contacting Dr. Khosh. You could suffer from a saddle nose condition that can be corrected with treatment. To schedule a consultation to discuss your options, call our office today.

What Dr. Khosh's Patients Say

Meredith G.
Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!
Jackie C.
Great front office, really good experience after what was a terrible accident. I was made to feel comfortable. Dr. Khosh is very good at what he does. I'm still healing but I'm confident of the results

After visiting and being evaluated by several doctors, I kept going back to Dr. Khosh. His tranquil spirit and professionalism were captivating. Thank you for a job well done and keeping me calm throughout the entire process. A special thanks to your staff Susan and Christine for all of their support as well. Hi highly recommend Dr. Khosh.

Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
Courtney G.
AMAZING!!!!!! I had Dr Khosh perform lipo on my chin/neck and my result is unbelievable! Better than I could have expected! I met with a couple of surgeons and the second I met with Dr Khosh I knew he was the one I was going with. He was compassionate and explained every detail of what would take place during the surgery and what to expect during recovery. I even emailed a few times during recovery with various questions and he got right back to me asap which was really comforting! I honestly fully recommend Dr Khosh, he did an amazing job and is an amazing person.

i can finally breathe!! Dr. Khosh made the entire experience a breeze, it was truly a pleasure to be under his care. I am forever thankful and highly recommend him. Not only does his work speak for himself, but he has excellent bedside manner. His kindness and patience is above and beyond. He takes the time to answer to every question you have to help you understand the process while at the same time making you feel so comfortable. From the first consultation i knew i was in good hands. I am so pleased with the result and forever thankful.
