Endoscopic Sinus Surgery

Do you have sinus problems that have not responded to medical therapy?

Sinus surgery is generally indicated for patients with sinus problems that do not respond to medical therapy. Most sinus problems do not require surgery, however, in some patients surgical intervention is necessary. Overall, the risks from modern sinus surgery are low; fortunately, the risk of a major complication is far less than 1%. 

About Endoscopic Sinus Surgery

Endoscopic sinus surgery is the modern surgical approach to the sinuses whereby an endoscope is placed through the nostrils to view the nasal cavity and sinuses directly. The endoscope illuminates and magnifies the sinus cavities permitting precise removal of diseased tissue. The surgery is considered minimally invasive and has greatly reduced the need for incisions in the facial region to access the sinuses. Endoscopic surgery can frequently be performed on an outpatient basis.

Sinus surgery is generally indicated for patients with sinus problems that do not respond to medical therapy. Most sinus problems do not require surgery, however, in some patients surgical intervention is necessary. Overall, the risks from modern sinus surgery are low; fortunately, the risk of a major complication is far less than 1%. Postoperative discomfort is usually mild and well tolerated with sino-nasal surgery. Typically, patients use approximately 4 to 5 doses of pain relievers in the first day or two after surgery.

Follow-up visits are arranged until the area is healed (four or more weeks). During follow-up visits, any scar tissue that is forming over sinus openings will be removed under local anesthesia. This is usually well tolerated by patients in the office setting.

Individualizing sinus surgery and choosing your sinus surgeon

If surgery is recommended, it is important to tailor the operation to meet the individual patient’s needs. Sinus surgery can mean different things in different patients. In a patient with extensive disease surgery might be indicated in all eight sinuses, whereas a patient with limited disease might require surgery in one or two sinuses. Individualizing the scope of the procedure reduces surgical risk and maximizes benefits. At North Florida Sinus Center, your individual condition will be thoughtfully considered and a surgical plan will be tailored to your needs.

Equally important as the decision making about surgery is the skill and experience of the physician performing the operation. Research shows that highly experienced surgeons encounter fewer surgical complications than those less experienced. At North Florida Sinus Center are board certified, fellowship trained, and have decades of experience performing a wide variety of nasal, sinus and skull base surgeries.
