With a combined experience of over 50 years, Queen City Ear, Nose, and Throat doctors have successfully operated on sinuses and provided relief to 1,000’s of patients who suffered many chronic sinus related ailments. With advances in surgical tooling and techniques, sinus surgery has less post surgical bleeding and involves a shorter recovery time.
This type of surgery requires no visible incisions using fiber optics, a miniature camera and light are used to navigate into the sinuses and nasal passages and viewable in the operating room on a monitor for the doctor to effectively operate. Once the doctor reviews and identifies the problem in the sinus cavity he uses tiny surgical instruments to correct a deviated septum, unwanted tissue, or polyps.
Sinus surgery may require the doctors to work close to the eyes and/or brain. For maximum accuracy around these organs, surgeons will use micro instruments, accurate up to a millimeter, and high definition visual aids to carefully remove unnecessary tissue or polyps to clear the sinuses.
This operation helps relieve sinus blockage, inflammation and/or severe rhinosinusitis. During the procedure, a flexible camera and light source are used to assist the surgeon in navigating a small catheter balloon, which is carefully inserted into the large sinus cavity and then slowly dilated to clear a path allowing normal drainage to occur.
