NOSE AND SINUS

 

  • Image-guided/Functional Sinus Surgery: Sinusitis is a problem experienced by thousands of Canadians annually. An ENT surgeon can evaluate the cause of sinus irritation and determine the appropriate course of action. If medication does not resolve the issue, sinus surgery may be suggested. During sinus surgery, the ENT surgeon will restore drainage of the facial sinuses to relieve symptoms. Your surgeon will use either an endoscope or 3D image guidance technology to precisely remove diseased tissue, polyps, and any other obstructions. With this minimally invasive procedure there is less scarring, less bleeding, and a shorter recovery time compared to traditional open surgery. This procedure is usually performed on a day surgery basis.

 

  • Rhinoplasty/Septoplasty: As specialists of the nose, an ENT surgeon can help to restore normal airflow and correct the cosmetic appearance of the nose. Rhinoplasty (nose job) is done to correct the size, shape, and proportions of the nose. Septoplasty on the other hand is primarily done to correct a deviated septum (middle division between nostrils). Both procedures take into consideration maintaining an ideal final cosmetic appearance for the patient, however the primary focus is always to maintain or improve the breathing function of the nose. Both of these procedures are done on a day surgery basis.

 

  • Chronic Rhinosinusitis: Chronic Rhinosinusitis is inflammation of the facial sinuses that does not resolve. These sinuses that normally drain freely become blocked. As a result of the blockage, there is build up of mucous resulting in facial pain, discharge, and difficulty breathing. Infections, growths (polyps), and septal deviations are some causes of chronic rhinosinusitis. If there is no response to medication, your surgeon will consider operating to help resolve symptoms. Minimally invasive sinus surgery is very effective in improving outcomes for patients who suffer chronic rhinosinusitis.
