A New Treatment for Recurrent Nasal Polyps


If you’re suffering from nasal polyps, you are not alone.  Studies, including a survey by the National Center for Health Statistics, have shown that up to 10% of all Americans suffer from chronic sinusitis, with or without nasal polyps.

Symptoms of this condition include nasal discharge, loss of smell, facial pain, and persistent nasal obstruction, which can make it difficult to breathe. Symptoms are often treated with intranasal steroid sprays, saline rinses, and oral steroids.
