ENT Treatments in Phoenix, AZ
Sinus problems and allergies are becoming more common among all age groups. At Arizona Facial Plastics, PC, we offer comprehensive diagnostics and advanced ENT treatment options for adults and children from Maricopa County Hospital, Phoenix, Scottsdale, Paradise Valley, and the surrounding communities of Arizona. Board-certified ENT and facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Farhan Taghizadeh uses his extensive training and years of experience treating disorders of the ear, nose, and throat to provide his patients with total and lasting relief of their sinus and allergy problems.
Allergies and sinus problems occur when the immune system is overwhelmed by harmful irritants or allergens. Pet dander, dust, certain foods, pollen, bacteria, viruses are common substances that can cause allergic reactions or trigger sinus conditions. The overwhelming volume of irritants entering the body, and the body’s own physical limitations, prevents the immune system from effectively destroying harmful substances that do invade the body.
Dr. Taghizadeh uses his in-depth knowledge of the anatomical structure of the nose, sinuses, neck, and other facial areas to understand the intricate and often times complex relationship of varying ENT symptoms. This allows Dr. Taghizadeh to accurately diagnose the true source of a patient’s sinus problems and prescribe an effective course of treatment
Services at Arizona Facial Plastics, PC, are available for the following:
Causes of Sinus Conditions
When they function properly, the sinuses allow you to breathe easy by adding moisture and warmth to the air that you inhale and filter harmful substances that could invade and irritate the rest of your body. The sinuses also play a vital role in protecting the body from infectious microorganisms such as viruses and bacteria. Sinus problems are becoming more common in children and adults due to the increasing number of pollutants in the environment. Sinus problems can also occur when allergies, fractures, growths, improper healing of previous infections, and nasal or sinus cavity deformities irritate or block the sinuses.
Treatment of Allergies and Sinus Problems
Dr. Taghizadeh offers a full range of treatments for allergy and sinus problems, including prescription and OTC medications, lifestyle changes, and other therapies. He studies and remains up-to-date with the ever-changing treatments available in the ENT field to devise a treatment plan that best serves your personal needs and the severity of your condition. When patients with sinus conditions fail to adequately respond to other sinus therapies, surgery is usually the next and most effective course of treatment.
How To Reduce Risk for Developing Allergies or Sinus Issues
The underlying cause of sinus problems and allergic reactions can vary from patient to patient, but certain lifestyle choices, such as smoking, can damage the sinuses and make you more susceptible to allergies and other sinus problems. Dr. Taghizadeh uses his record of excellence in diagnosing and treating disorders of the ear, nose, and throat to identify potential lifestyle changes patients can make to lower their risk of developing allergic reactions and sinus problems.
