There are several different types of sinus surgery, most of which can be performed through minimally invasive techniques that require no incisions and no hospital stay.
Some of the most commonly performed procedures include functional endoscopic sinus surgery(FESS), image-guided surgery, and Balloon Sinuplasty.
Most sinus and nasal surgeries are performed on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia. Patients may experience mild swelling and discomfort after surgery.
Recovery generally consists of LITTLE TO NO PAIN; and nasal congestion for approximately 1 week.
Image-Guided Sinus Surgery with real time Navigation
We frequently employ Navigation System from Stryker. This innovative laser image-guided system provides our surgeon with the most detailed, real-time views of the sinus anatomy during the procedure. This allows our doctors achieve the safest, most complete surgeries. They are operating with the maximum amount of information about the unique anatomy of each patient and visualizing the relative location of the instrument tip within the structure of that particular patient’s sinuses. Image-guided surgery is often recommended for revision sinus surgery,distorted sinus anatomy, and extensive development of polyps.
