How does sinus surgery help?
Sinus surgery is a helpful option for people with chronic sinus infection and inflammation, recurrent sinus infections or an abnormal growth in the nose or sinuses.
By removing the inflamed tissue within the sinuses and widening the natural openings of the sinuses, improved drainage and ventilation of the sinuses is achieved. Sinus surgery also provides increased access for nasal washes and sprays following surgery, which helps to control sinus inflammation.
Successful sinus surgery followed by ongoing medical management can help patients live congestion and pain free and frequently results in a significant improvement in their sense of smell.
