Surgery should be considered only if medical treatment fails or if there is a nasal obstruction that cannot be corrected with medications. The type of surgery is chosen to best suit the patient and the disease. Surgery at our Sinus Center is performed without external incisions, scars or bruising.
Our board certified ENT surgeons use CT imaging, for their functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS) procedures. The imaging works like a real time “GPS”, creating a map for the most effective surgical outcome.
Our surgeries are much less invasive than procedures used years ago. We do not use “old fashioned” removable packing. Instead, we use an internal nasal dressing that dissolves.
We take our time with patients to be sure they have realistic expectations for the results, recovery, and postoperative care. Good results require not only good surgical techniques, but a cooperative effort between the patient and physician throughout the healing process. It is equally important for patients to follow our detailed pre- and postoperative instructions.
