Doctors at Sir Ganga Ram Hospital (SGRH) are using a non-surgical technique called balloon sinuplasty to treat chronic sinusitis without surgery.

Sinusitis is the inflammation of the sinuses and can become a big issue if mucus starts blocking the airways.

"The usual treatment procedure of treating acute or chronic sinusitis is to open the nasal tract in order to reach the blockage and then remove the mucus. It is a painful procedure, and in the course of reaching the spot, some bones may break, leading to a longer recovery time," said Dr Shalabh Sharma, senior consultant, ENT, SGRH.

The technique costs Rs 40,000 and patients can go home the same day.

I found some stuff that kills fungus and bacteria that you really ought to try. The antibiotics don't kill the fungus and you need to kill both. This stuff does. You just spray it in your nose and WOW, it got rid of my nasty sinus infection in about a week. I had tried antibiotics that were specifically prescribed for my sinusitis and I also tried a neti pot (yuk) but just couldn’t get this sinus infection to quit. So I did a search and found this stuff (Sinus Relief) from Nature’s Rite. The only problem is that you have to spray it every 30 minutes. I thought, hey, what the heck, it’s worth a try and every 30 minutes isn’t too bad. I was really surprised how well it worked so I bought their sinus support too. It’s been a good moisturizer with calendula and aloe. It’s herbal ya know. I like herbal stuff. So anyway, you should try this for your sinusitis. It won’t make you have a yeast infection after-words like some antibiotics do.
