At Beaumont, we do our best to clear your sinusitis with noninvasive techniques that cause little discomfort. But if those do not work, you may need to consider surgical therapy.
Surgical therapy improves the opening between the nose and sinuses, which allows relief of sinus pressure, improved sinus drainage, and better access of medications to the sinuses.
Doctors review high resolution CT scan images to see your unique facial structure and functions. This technology allows us to pinpoint the affected area and treat your airways more precisely than ever before. If the images indicate that the sinuses are
blocked, your ENT specialist may recommend expanding the passageway between your nose and your sinuses. There are different ways this can be done. For example, endoscopic sinus surgery can remove tissue blocking your sinuses. Or, balloon sinuplasty
can allow for better airflow by expanding a tiny balloon in your sinus passages.
During any sinus procedure, Beaumont ENT specialists use the most up to date endoscopy equipment, utilizing 4K technology for viewing the sinus passageways. Image guidance permits the ENT specialist to very precisely target the areas that require opening.
At Beaumont, your comfort and safety is important during any procedure. So, we continually research the most effective ways to perform surgery with low or no opioid drugs. And when needed, our highly trained anesthesia specialists play an essential role
in your care team.
