Sinus Surgery Facts

Sinus Surgery Facts

  • If medications don’t correct nasal obstructions, sinus surgery may help.
  • Most sinus surgery is done on an outpatient basis in the hospital under general anesthesia.
  • Since surgery is performed through the nostrils, there are no external incisions.
  • Today’s surgery is less extensive than the surgery performed many years ago. It does not require nasal packing.
  • Good results require good surgical techniques and cooperation between the patient and the physician throughout the healing process.
  • Most patients experience minimal post-operative discomfort.
  • Although sinus surgery does not cure allergies, it may help to lessen symptoms during allergy season
