If chronic sinus infections and inflammation cannot be managed with medication, sinus surgery may be necessary. Endoscopic sinus surgery is a minimally invasive surgical alternative that removes blockages to improve sinus function without large incisions or visible scarring.
Our sinus surgeons use minimally invasive endoscopic techniques and image-guidance technology to address sinus problems. The surgery is performed using small instruments and cameras through the natural openings of the nostrils without changing your outward physical appearance. Specialized sinus instruments are used to safely identify clogged sinus openings and enlarge them to restore proper sinus drainage and health. After a brief stay in the recovery unit, patients go home the same day and recover fully in a few weeks.
Advantages & Outcomes
- Reduce the severity and frequency of infections, inflammation, and symptoms associated with sinusitis.
- Avoid visible scarring and lower the risk of complications through a less invasive procedure.
- Recover quickly and with less postoperative discomfort, pain, or care compared to open surgery.
- Decrease dependency on antibiotics, steroids, and over-the-counter medications needed to manage symptoms.
