The start of allergy season is sending a lot of people looking for relief in the medicine aisle.
For those whose allergies lead to chronic and acute sinusitis or sinus infections, traditional sinus surgery is often the only path to relief. But many resist, afraid to go under the knife.
“Patients were afraid to undergo the traditional sinus surgery. They used to call it the rotor-rooter of my sinuses,” said Dr. Andrea Williams, of ENT & Audiology Associates of the Carolinas.
