What Does Surgery Involve?
The goal of the surgery is to improve sinus drainage and reduce blockage. Our specially trained surgeon will enlarge the opening of the sinuses, remove any polyps and correct any defects that contribute to the nasal obstruction. This procedure is performed under general anesthesia through minimally invasive techniques that require no incisions. Patients can experience swelling and bruising.
