Chronic sinusitis and related conditions are a common medical problem. Sinus symptoms include headache, stuffy nose, cough, fever and reduced sense of taste or smell. Over 60% of sinusitis sufferers do not respond to medical treatments, thus Guthrie Otolaryngology offers you surgical options for nasal/sinus relief.
In the past, most nasal and sinus surgery needed to be performed in the hospital operating room, but now these procedures have evolved into a quicker outpatient procedure that happens in our office. Patients are given medication prior to the procedure to manage the pain and anxiety and then proper local anesthesia allows the patient to remain comfortable throughout the procedure. Having the procedure done in our office is safe and effective and allows the patient a quicker recovery than an operating room procedure.
Options for sinus relief, including:
- Endoscopic sinus surgery.
- Image-guided sinus surgery.
- Nasal/septal surgery.
- Balloon Sinuplasty.
