All About Endoscopic Sinus Surgery
- Posted on: Sep 15 2019
When patients have sinus issues that may require surgical intervention, they are often worried about undergoing an invasive procedure. Thanks to continued medical advances, patients can undergo less invasive procedures with the use of an endoscope. One treatment offered at the practice of Dr. Payam Daneshrad is that of endoscopic sinus surgery.
What is endoscopic sinus surgery?
Patients who have a blockage in their sinuses may need to have a procedure done to help open the airways. This can not only alleviate problems with breathing clearly, but can help reduce pain and drainage that is often associated with sinusitis, septal deviations, or nasal polyps. The procedure is done with the use of an endoscope, which is a special device with a camera at the end of it which allows the doctor to see the area where treatment is needed via a television monitor. Endoscopic surgery is done directly through the nostrils, which eliminates the need for incisions. This not only reduces the risk of infection and other complications, but it also allows the procedure to be done as an outpatient treatment, letting patients return home the same day as their surgery.
Who choose endoscopic surgery?
By using an endoscope, the doctor performing the procedure will have the chance to visualize the problem and treat it, all without incisions. The device can improve airflow through the nose when eliminating a blockage, and can also help patients improve their sense of smell, reduce symptoms associated with sinusitis, and even reduce the number and severity of sinus infections. The procedure is less invasive than traditional surgeries and can help in the exact same way.
