The Sinusitis Clinic at Children's Colorado is one of the longest-running clinics of its kind in the nation. Established over a decade ago, specialists at our clinic treat 60 to 80 kids every year for chronic sinus infection. The Sinusitis Clinic specialists use a wide array of tools to easily and effectively diagnose and treat sinusitis (sinus infections) in kids. These tools include minimally invasive, image-guided endoscopic techniques and the newest medications.
The visit will take place in the ENT Clinic at Children’s Hospital Colorado on the Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora. We may schedule a CT scan before or during the visit. Generally, all three subspecialists from ENT, Allergy and Immunology and Infectious Diseases are present for your child’s appointment.
The specialists come into the exam room as a group. They will ask a series of common questions and some additional questions based on your child’s clinical history. They will also examine your child.
Finally, the specialists will speak with you about their assessment and recommended plan of care for your child. Your child may also need additional laboratory tests and treatment. Occasionally, the allergist/immunologist may order a screening allergy skin test or a pulmonary function test. The visit generally lasts 45 to 60 minutes for new patients.
Our multidisciplinary team works together to provide comprehensive evaluation and treatment. They represent important medical fields that help advance the management of this difficult disease. The experts at our clinic are recognized in their field for advancing basic research on the study of pediatric sinusitis, including its cause.
