Find More Information on Sinus Surgery through ENT Institute


Georgia-based ENT Institute: Committed to Providing Superior Care

Sinus surgery is generally recommended as the best treatment option for chronic sinus issues. Non-surgical treatment methods are nearly always tried before sinus surgery is suggested.  However, in cases when an ENT Institute physician and patient find that sinus infections are recurrent and/or non-responsive to medication, sinus surgery can be used to enlarge the openings that drain the sinuses.

The surgeons at ENT Institute have the expertise and advanced technology to perform a necessary sinus surgery. A clinical history of the patient will be created by ENT Institute before any sinus surgery is performed. A careful diagnostic workup is necessary to identify the underlying cause of chronic sinusitis. Often, the specialists at the ENT Institute will complete a CT scan of the sinuses to determine the best approach.

Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery (FESS)

FESS is one of the most advanced forms of sinus surgery and may be recommended by a specialist at the ENT Institute. The use of an endoscope is linked to the theory that the best way to obtain normal healthy sinuses is to open the natural pathways to the sinuses. Once an improved drainage system is achieved, the diseased sinus mucosa has an opportunity to return to normal.

This type of sinus surgery involves the insertion of the endoscope, a very thin fiber-optic tube, into the nose for a direct visual examination of the openings into the sinuses. With state of the art micro-telescopes and instruments, abnormal and obstructive tissues are then removed. In the majority of cases, the surgical procedure is performed entirely through the nostrils, leaving no external scars. There is little swelling and only mild discomfort.

Below are some of the advantages to using FESS:

  • Surgery is less extensive
  • Less removal of normal tissues
  • Frequently be performed on an outpatient basis.

After the sinus surgery is performed at the ENT Institute, the patient will sometimes have nasal packing. Ten days after the procedure, nasal irrigation may be recommended to prevent crusting.

Proven relief from the discomfort of a chronic sinus issues makes the ENT Institute an ideal choice for sinus surgery.  To learn more about the ENT Institute or to schedule a consultation with a surgeon about sinus surgery, please call 678-347-2140
