When Medication Fails, Sinus Surgery May Be an Option
Sinus surgery utilizes a small camera (endoscope) to make the procedure more precise and typically doesn’t involve packing.
Healthy sinuses have good airflow and allow mucus to drain properly.
Inflammation blocks sinus passageways, causing facial pressure and congestion.
Surgery widens diseased sinus openings to restore natural drainage.
