Sinus Surgery

Sinus Surgery

Occasionally a person’s sinus disease and nasal obstruction may not respond to medical treatment and surgery will be recommended.

Sinus surgery has evolved significantly over the past 30 years. Surgery was initially performed thru open incisions in the face or under the lips. For the past 25 years sinus surgery has been predominantly performed using small telescopes called endoscopes, which are placed in the nose. Powered equipment is now available to open the blocked sinus openings and remove polyps. Sinus surgery can now be done less traumatically with decreased bleeding and operative times.

The newest addition to the sinus surgery armamentaria is Balloon Sinuplasty. This minimally invasive procedure involves placement of a lighted wire into the blocked sinus and then threading a balloon over the wire across the sinus opening. The balloon is inflated dilating the sinus opening in a very atraumatic way.

Balloon Sinuplasty has recently been shown to improve chronic sinusitis outcomes in children as composed to adenoidectomy alone.

Dr. Lee and Dr. Jordan have extensive experience in all surgical and non-surgical treatment for chronic sinusitis.
