Endoscopic sinus surgery is a minimally invasive procedure for those experiencing sinus infections that last for months at a time, or who have frequent sinus infections. With this procedure, we will help your sinuses drain more effectively so that infections are less likely to occur.
Causes of Sinus Infections:
Bacterial or viral infection, congenital blockages, nasal polyps and scar tissue. Allergies and a deviated septum may also increase susceptibility to sinus infections.
Symptoms of Sinus Infections:
Pain and pressure in the face, headache, runny nose, congestion, colorful drainage from the nose or into the back of the throat, cough.
During this outpatient procedure, Dr. Davis will insert a small endoscope into the nose and use microsurgical instruments to safely open blocked sinus passages, allowing them to drain freely. The procedure typically takes about 60 minutes and is performed in a nearby operating room. Dr. Davis does not use packing and there are no changes in the patient’s appearance. Recovery time is up to a week during which there is nasal congestion but medications are provided to treat any discomfort.
