Endoscopic Sinus Surgery

sinus x-raySinus Surgery Experts in Dallas Fort Worth

Sinus surgery is a common procedure for patients who suffer with chronic or recurrent sinus infections.  This outpatient surgical procedure involves removal of polyps from the nasal cavity and removal of inflamed tissue to relieve obstructed sinuses.  We perform sinus surgery when patients have extensive amounts of inflamed tissue, often with nasal polyps.  Nasal polyps are fleshy finger-like growths that form inside the nasal cavity and sinuses when there is long-standing inflammation.

The surgery is performed under general anesthesia and takes about 1.5-2 hours.  Patients go home after the procedure and generally take a 3-5 days off from work or school.  Sinus surgery has a high satisfaction rate--especially for those who have obstructive polyps.  It is important, however, to have good medical management of allergies and sinus inflammation after the surgery.  In fact, one of the real benefits of sinus surgery is that it opens the anatomy of the sinuses in a way that makes topical medications more effective--because they can reach the surfaces of the sinuses much better than before surgery.
