Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery (FESS)
As one of the most popular treatments for chronic sinusitis and nasal polyps, endoscopic sinus drainage passageways are re-established through this minimally invasive surgical procedure. Using a combination of high-definition fiber optic cameras and endoscopic instruments, the surgeon is able to approach and enlarge the sinuses via the nasal passages, without cutting the skin, eliminating the need for nasal packing as required in traditional sinus surgery methods. This technique also reduces swelling and discomfort post-procedure and can typically be performed on an outpatient basis.
Medtronic Fusion® Image Guided Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery (FESS)
The Fusion™ ENT Navigation System is an innovative electromagnetic image-guided surgery system that allows the surgeon to utilize Computerized Tomographic (CT) images of your sinuses in conjunction with real time endoscopic sinus surgery images. This combination provides the maximum amount of information about each patient’s unique anatomy for a safer, more thorough procedure. For more information, click on the link below.
This modern, minimally invasive technique is used during Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery to relieve sinus obstructions without removing tissue or bone. Using only a small catheter and attached balloon to inflate the sinus opening, this pioneering method reduces trauma to mucosal membranes in the nose, speeds recovery time, and can also reduce some of the risks associated with traditional sinus surgery. In most cases, this procedure can also be performed in the office with local anesthesia. For more information on this procedure, please click on the link below.
Xoran CT Imaging (CT Scan)
Through the use of a modern in-office CT scanner that has the capability to image the paranasal sinuses and temporal bones, doctors can evaluate and diagnose chronic sinus and ear related conditions quickly. Imaging studies can be completed and interpreted in just minutes during an office visit. The Xoran Mini-CAT scanner provides high-quality, detailed imaging studies using up to 20% less radiation of a traditional CT scan. Click on the link below for more information.
