Nasal and sinus problems are among the most common health conditions for which patients seek medical attention.  Rhinosinusitis is the number one self-reported chronic health condition in the United States, affecting between 30 and 40 million people each year.

Symptoms of nasal and sinus problems include:

• Nasal congestion or blockage
• Nasal drainage
• Sinus and facial pressure
• Cough
• Fatigue
• Headache
• Loss of sense of smell and taste

Fortunately, a broad variety of medical and surgical therapies are available to treat nasal and sinus diseases, and new approaches are constantly being developed.  It is important to understand how the sinuses work in order to understand these complex conditions.

At the Johns Hopkins Sinus Center, patients of all ages and from many parts of the world take advantage of our full range of state-of-the-art services used to evaluate, diagnose and treat nasal and sinus problems.
