Chronic sinusitis affects 37 million Americans every year... making it one of the most common health problems.
It's an inflammation of the sinus cavities that prevents the normal drainage of mucus, causing everything from facial pain and headaches, to difficulty breathing and sleeping, and even a reduced sense of taste.
Surgery to correct the problem is an option, and now there's a minimally-invasive technique that's truly giving patients a new lease on life.
Dr. Andrew Behler of Metro Health Ear, Nose and Throat tells us more about the condition and this very effective treatment. He's joined by patient, Michelle McWilliams who's had the procedure done.
