Sinus Surgery

Endoscopic sinus surgery can offer the chance for meaningful relief from painful chronic sinusitis symptoms.

Have you experienced any of the following symptoms for 12 consecutive weeks or longer and are over the age of 18?

  • Facial pain, pressure or fullness
  • Headaches
  • Difficulty breathing through nose
  • Decreased sense of smell
  • Drainage of cloudy or colored mucus

With sinus surgery, an ear, nose, and throat (ENT) physician inserts a slender instrument called an endoscope into the nostril. The tiny camera on the end allows the physician to see the drainage pathway of the sinuses. Then tissue or polyps are removed, opening and ventilating the sinuses.1 For people suffering from ongoing and recurrent sinus issues like an abnormal sinus structure, abnormal growths or chronic symptoms, surgery is the recommended option for long term relief.1

Following endoscopic sinus surgery, the ENT physician can place a stent that conforms to the sinus and holds it open while it heals. It contains anti-inflammatory medication, which gets delivered in a controlled manner directly into the tissues.1
