Sinus problems can significantly impact your child's quality of life. The physicians of the Sinus Surgery Program at Boston Children's Hospital handle all types of sinus problems ranging from simple infections to complex tumors.
Conditions we treat include:
In children, the most common manifestations of sinus problems include the following:
A comprehensive management plan will be developed depending on the cause of your child's sinus problem. Because sinus problems can have multiple causes, we commonly work with our colleagues in related specialties at Boston Children's Hospital such as Allergy & Immunology and Pulmonology.
Some children with sinus problems require surgery. The majority of sinus surgical procedures are performed through the nose without external skin incisions. Such endoscopic sinus surgery is a common procedure at our center. Boston Children's has the most advanced radiologic imaging and surgical equipment available to make such procedures as thorough and safe as possible for your child. The extent of surgery is always tailored to your child's condition. Our goal is to make you and your family as comfortable as possible with respect to any procedure which needs to be performed.
The future of pediatrics will be forged by thinking differently, breaking paradigms and joining together in a shared vision of tackling the toughest challenges before us.”
