Cutting-Edge Sinus Surgery

Amazing surgical advances over the last decade allow our skilled ENT doctors to perform cutting-edge sinus surgery for patients with severe sinus disease. Endoscopic ear surgery to treat chronic sinusitis or recurrent acute sinusitis can now be performed without the pain and complications of previous sinus surgeries.

Do your symptoms include:

Severe nasal congestion
Feeling like you have sinus pressure
Frequent sinus infections
Trouble breathing through your nose

The goal of endoscopic sinus surgery is to remove blockages in the sinuses that cause pain and breathing problems. Removing blockages will help the sinuses drain, improve airflow through the nasal passages, and reduce the number and severity of sinus infections.

Endoscopic Ear surgery — One step at a time

Step One

Traditional endoscopic sinus surgery is typically performed as an outpatient procedure in the hospital or surgery center under general anesthesia.

Step Two

Using a nasal endoscope, a small instrument with a camera and light at the end, the sinus surgeon can view the sinuses and determine what is causing the blockages.

Step Three

The doctor will then insert specialized instruments into the nostrils to safely and effectively remove sinus blockages.

The End of Lifelong Sinus Issues

Combined with rotating suction instruments to remove nasal polyps, powered sinus washing devices to treat infection, and instruments to straighten the septum and reduce the size of the turbinates if necessary, endoscopic sinus surgery is highly successful in treating patients that have experienced lifelong sinus issues.

We frequently perform 3-dimensional stereotactic CT-guided sinus surgery, which uses 3D CT technology in real time to guide our surgeons during your procedure. The images from the CT scan move on the screen with the surgeon’s hand movement, which allows for unmatched precision and a reduced risk of complications during and after your procedure, as well as improved patient outcomes.

Quicker Recovery

Best of all, with the advanced techniques employed by the physicians at Capital Otolaryngology, we have the ability to use endoscopic guided cultures to enable utilization of culture-specific antibiotics. The procedure only takes approximately 45 minutes, there is no nasal packing, and patients go home the same day.

Sleep apnea is a common sleep disorder. It occurs when your breathing ceases numerous times while you are asleep and can cause you to stop breathing 30 times an hour or more.

We utilize cutting-edge surgical techniques to correct the septum without the need for harsh packing and splinting. This reduces pain, discomfort, and recovery time after your procedure.
