Dr. Mehmet Agabigum in Flint, MI, offers comprehensive ear, nose, and throat services, including sinus surgery, to help you breathe better.
Sinus surgery may be the answer you are looking for if you suffer from:
- Sinusitis or sinus-related headaches
- Sinus infections that keep returning
- Nasal or sinus blockages or polyps
- Fungal sinus disease
- Structural abnormalities in your sinuses
When you choose sinus surgery, you will enjoy some important advantages like these:
- Quick, more comfortable treatment
- Minimally invasive treatment
- Minimal to no downtime after treatment
Treatment is also performed on an outpatient basis with no hospital stay. This means less expense for you, and you can recuperate in your own home.
There are several types of outpatient surgery for you to consider. Your ENT specialist can help you decide which treatment is best for you. Consider:
Balloon sinuplasty, which uses a thin, flexible catheter with a balloon on one end; the catheter is inserted into your nose and guided up into your sinus. When the catheter encounters an obstructed area, the balloon is inflated. Inflating the balloon clears out the blocked area. After all blockages are cleared, the balloon is deflated, and the catheter is removed.
Endoscopic surgery, which uses a thin, flexible tube called an endoscope; the endoscope is inserted into your nostril and guided up into your sinuses. This type of surgery may be recommended if you have nasal or sinus polyps.
Open sinus surgery, which may be recommended for more serious problems or diseases including sinus cancer. This type of surgery may also be necessary to correct structural abnormalities in your sinuses or nose.
