(Vocus) October 28, 2009 -- Dr. Howard Herman, M.D., a physician with the Atlanta Snoring Institute, was recently featured in a Henry Daily Herald article that stressed the importance of paying attention to sinus pain in order to prevent infection, especially during cold and flu season. Dr. Herman is an ear, nose, and throat doctor and head and neck surgeon at the Atlanta Snoring Institute, a leading area center for relief of nasal obstruction, chronic sinus problems, sleep apnea, and snoring.


   
With winter fast approaching, many doctors are advising the public on the best way to both prevent and treat sinus or flu problems that accompany the changing of the season. “Medical professionals are encouraging those who suffer from chronic sinus infections to seek help before their infections get worse,” writes Herald correspondent Johnny Jackson.

Dr. Herman, a snoring and sinus specialist, notes that “fall, leading into the cold and flu season, is the peak time for people to suffer sinus infections, a condition also known as sinusitis.” Sinusitis is the irritation and swelling of the sinuses and nasal passages. A sinus infection can cause an intense headache or uncomfortable pressure around the eyes, nose, cheeks, and sides of the head and contribute to nasal obstruction.

"Often sinus infection will follow a cold, and the sinus will become inflamed,” he says. The doctor also noted that some are at a higher risk for sinus infection during cold and flu season. “People who are smokers and people who have allergies are more likely to get chronic sinus disease.”

The symptoms of a sinus infection can range from mildly irritating to severe enough to drastically affect one’s quality of life. “Sinus congestion which does not go away can cause recurring facial pains or headaches, discolored nasal discharges, and a decrease in the senses of smell and taste,” states Dr. Herman. Other symptoms, some of which are similar to flu symptoms, include cough, fever, and nasal congestion with thick nasal secretions.

If you are one of the 37 million Americans who suffer from sinus infection, the physicians of the Atlanta Snoring Institute recommend either medical or minimally invasive surgery treatment, such as balloon sinuplasty. Dr. Herman explains, “The balloon sinuplasty technique involves an outpatient surgical procedure, in which surgeons use a thin wire to thread a small balloon into the sinus cavity, and then inflate the balloon to open up the blocked passageway.

Dr. Howard Herman received his degree from the Boston University School of Medicine. His postgraduate career training was extensive, and included an internship in General Surgery at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City and residency in Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at The New York Eye and Ear Infirmary. Dr. Herman has published book chapters and research articles in his fields of expertise, such as minimally invasive sinus surgery. He has been practicing with Ear Nose and Throat (ENT) of Georgia since 1993.
Dr. Herman specializes in the minimally invasive office based management of snoring and mild sleep apnea. He performs more Pillar implants than any other physician in the state of Georgia. He is a member of several professional societies including the American Academy of Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery and the American Medical Association. Dr. Herman sees patients in the Stockbridge, Riverdale, and Piedmont Hospital offices of ENT of Georgia.

Especially with the increased discomfort and risk of sinus infection during the colder months, Dr. Herman and the other physicians of the Atlanta Snoring Institute advise anyone experiencing sinus pain or flu symptoms to quickly consult a physician. ASI offers simple in-office procedures that are effective in reducing or eliminating sleep disorders and offers chronic snoring, sinus problem, and sleep apnea treatment. These problems can manifest themselves in a variety of uncomfortable and ways that can affect a person’s overall quality of life.

If you are suffering from sinus congestion, sinus pain, snoring, sleep apnea, or other breathing problems, the cause can be determined during an evaluation by one of ASI’s board certified Ear, Nose, and Throat (ENT) physicians. Dr. Herman and the other doctors urge everyone during cold and flu season to pay close attention to sinus headache, sinus pain, sinus pressure, and other sinus symptoms. ASI also specializes in the Pillar Procedure, a sleep apnea surgery, and treatment of sinus allergy through minimally invasive sinus surgery.
