The purpose of any sinus surgery is to remove anything that’s blocking the sinuses’ drainage path. Each surgery is carried out to remove one or more nose and sinus conditions treated in Houston. During the surgery, any of the following may be removed, including:
The major types of sinus surgeries in Houston include the following two procedures.
Surgeons perform FESS with an endoscope. This tool is an illuminated fiber-optic tube. During the procedure, the surgeon inserts the endoscope into the nose to reach the sinus openings. Surgical instruments and tiny telescopes may be passed through the endoscope to perform the procedure.
These small instruments help the surgeon remove any obstructive tissues or blockages from the sinuses. Since the whole procedure takes place through the nostrils, it doesn’t leave any scarring. While there may be some discomfort for a short time, the recovery time is fast.
Surgeons like Dr. Nguyen have been using a modern approach called image-guided endoscopic surgery. It’s a more efficient procedure that works well for treating sinus blockages and cases where other sinus surgeries haven’t been effective.
This image-guided surgery uses a 3D mapping system to help the surgeon position the surgical instruments with precision. With the help of infrared signals and CT scans, Dr. Nguyen can gain access to all kinds of sinus passages and remove blockages and tissues more effectively.
Turbinate reduction is a surgical procedure used to reduce the size of the turbinates, tiny structures in the nose that cleanse and moisten air. The surgeon puts a needle-like instrument in the turbinate before transmitting energy to the turbinate tissue to create controlled damage. So, when the healing process takes place, the turbinates can be reduced. This makes room for better airflow through the nostrils.
Dr. Nguyen performs turbinate reduction with the latest radio frequency equipment designed for the procedure. He can do it for you in your office, so you don’t have to visit the hospital. With the aid of local anesthesia, the procedure takes a little over 10 minutes.
The turbinate reduction process has many post-operation benefits including:
However, there may be crusting on the nose for a few weeks. During this period, we recommend using saline nasal irrigation and antibiotic ointment.
