Surgical Procedures Treatments we offer The surgeon will perform the sinus surgery by one of the following methods: 1. Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery (FESS)○ FESS is performed using a tool known as an endoscope. The endoscope is inserted through the nose to reach the sinus openings.○ To clear the sinuses, the surgeon will use micro telescopes and surgical instruments to remove obstructive tissues and other blockages.○ The entire procedure is performed through the nostrils, resulting in little to no scarring. 2.Image-guided Endoscopic Sinus Surgery○ Image-guided endoscopic surgery is a minimally invasive outpatient procedure.○ Small and narrow instruments are passed through the nasal and sinus cavities with the help of an endoscope.○ The instruments are used to remove the diseased tissues and any obstructed areas in the nose and sinuses.3. Balloon Sinuplasty○ Balloon sinuplasty involves dilating your blocked sinus and creating open space, which allows your sinus to drain naturally. ○ A thin catheter attached with a balloon is moved along the wire until it reaches the opening of your blocked sinus. ○ The balloon is then slowly inflated, which gently dilates your sinus opening, allowing normal draining of your sinus. This usually clears the blockage. 4.Caldwell-Luc Operation○ This is an invasive procedure that is usually performed to drain pus and/or remove a growth inside your maxillary sinus (sinus present behind your upper jaw).○ Your doctor will make a cut in your upper jaw, above one of the second molar teeth inside your mouth. Through this window, they will enter the sinus cavity and treat the concerning cause of your infection.○ This surgery can be done under either local or general anaesthesia.5.Septoplasty○ It is an outpatient procedure, performed to correct the problems associated with the septum (the bony partition between the nasal passages) of your nose. ○ This process restructures and realigns your deviated septum caused by birth (the nostril pressing against the birthing canal at birth) or from an injury.○ This opens up your nasal passages, making your breathing easier.6.Turbinate Reduction○ Infection, irritation, or allergies can cause the turbinates inside your nose to become swollen and inflamed.○ Turbinate reduction aims to reduce the size and swelling of these turbinates, making it easier for you to breathe. ○ This procedure generally requires the use of radiofrequency which is transmitted into your tissue by a needle-like instrument causing “controlled damage”.○ The turbinate begins to shrink in size as your nose heals.7. Functional Rhinoplasty○ Functional rhinoplasty is used to correct breathing problems caused by structural abnormalities in your nose.○ Your doctor will resculpt the bone and cartilage of your nose during the procedure, which may result in a change in nose shape.8. Open Sinus Surgery○ This is a major surgical procedure that usually necessitates accessing your sinuses via an incision in your mouth or face.○ This procedure can be used to clear sinus passages as well as remove major blockages that are causing problems, such as bone spurs.○ You may need to stay at the hospital for a few days after your surgery.9. Endoscopic Skull Base Surgery ○ It is performed very rarely for paranasal sinus (nasal cavity extensions that are filled with air).○ It provides direct access to the paranasal sinus, eliminating the need for flap surgeries.○ Your doctor will make a small hole inside your nose to remove a growth through an endoscope. ○ This shortens the surgical time and fastens your recovery. Want to know more about our experts? Request a FREE Consultation What is Sinus surgery? Sinus surgery is a procedure that aims to open up your sinus pathways and clear blockages. Sinuses are air-filled cavities within your skull that are located around your eyes, nose, and front of your face. This procedure is done when antibiotics and other medicines have not been successful. 1. When is Sinus surgery advised? Sinus surgery is done if you have active and recurrent sinus infections (sinusitis), abnormal sinus structure, and/or abnormal growths in your sinus. The purpose of this surgery is to remove anything that blocks your sinus drainage pathways like small fragments of bone, infected tissues and nasal growths (polyps and tumours). 2. Preoperative care ● You will be instructed not to eat or drink anything at least 8 to 10 hours before your surgery. ● Medicines like aspirin, anticoagulants (blood thinners), and some painkillers must be discontinued two weeks before surgery as they increase the risk of bleeding.● Smoking must be discontinued one month prior to your surgery.● You should arrange for a ride back home as you will not be able to drive for at least 24 hours after your surgery. 3. On the day of procedure ● Shower thoroughly on the morning of your surgery, but avoid applying lotion, moisturiser, or makeup to your face.● Sinus surgery is performed under general anaesthesia.● Your surgery may take up to 3 hours or more, depending on the type of surgery. 4. Postoperative care At The Hospital● After your surgery, you will be monitored for any excessive pain or bleeding.● Nasal packing (sterile gauze-like material) may be used after surgery to control bleeding.● You will also be given painkillers and other medicines after your surgery for relief.At HomeYou will be given instructions on what to do at home to help speed up your recovery and healing before leaving the surgery centre.● Keep your body in an upright position by putting pillows under your head to reduce pain and inflammation.● Refrain from blowing your nose for one week after surgery. Do not use swabs to clean your nose or remove any packing, splints, or tubes.● Place a cold compress over your treated area for 10-15 minutes to reduce pain and swelling.● Irrigate your sinuses twice a day by rinsing them with a saline nasal solution.● Tilt your head back and breathe gently through your nose if a nosebleed occurs.● Drink plenty of fluids.● Avoid activities like exercises and heavy lifting as that can elevate your blood pressure.● Use a humidifier to help keep your mucosal tissues moist. 5. Potential complications/risks Complications associated with sinus surgery are mostly rare and include:● Bleeding● Intracranial complications. Very rarely, a thin layer of bone may be damaged during sinus surgery leaking the CSF (cerebral spinal fluid) into your nose and, in severe cases, can lead to meningitis (an infection in the lining of your brain).● Damage to your eye or surrounding tissues● Change in your voice● Loss or change in smell or taste● Infection● Formation of scar tissue in your nasal passage● Perforation of your nasal septum● Anaesthesia related complications like memory loss, confusion, etc.● Numbness or discomfort in your upper front teeth. Swelling, bruising, or temporary numbness of your lip, as well as swelling or bruising around your eye, may also occur. Read More Practo Care Surgeries Safe and advanced surgical treatment.

Sinus surgery is performed under local or general anaesthesia therefore you don’t feel any pain during the procedure. It is a simple procedure with minimal discomfort and complications. Your doctor will prescribe you painkillers that can be taken after surgery to combat the pain. How long does recovery from Sinus surgery take? You should be able to return to work or school in about a week, and to your routine in about three weeks. However, this varies depending on your job and the extent of your surgery. After your surgery, you will need to visit your doctor regularly for follow-ups. What to eat after Sinus surgery? After having Sinus surgery:● You can resume your normal diet and include bland, gut-friendly food like yoghurt to prevent digestive issues.● Avoid eating hot and spicy food, as they may increase your nasal blood flow.● Drink plenty of fluids. Is it safe to sleep on your side after Sinus surgery? Sleeping on your side or stomach is not advised for several weeks following the procedure because it puts undue pressure on your nose. Resting on your back in an elevated position relieves congestion and reduces swelling following Sinus surgery. What is removed during Sinus surgery? Sinus surgery includes enlarging the openings between your sinuses and the inside of your nose so that air and drainage can pass through. It could entail the removal of infected sinus tissue, bone, or polyps. Is Sinus surgery really necessary for me? Before resorting to surgery, your doctor will try other treatments and procedures. This includes medicines and lifestyle modifications to help relieve sinus infections. If these do not work, then surgery is performed. It is also necessary in cases where you have some defect in your bone structure that can be corrected only by surgical intervention. What are the advantages of Sinus surgery? Sinus surgery expands the natural drainage pathway of the sinuses, lowering the risk of blockages that can cause acute and chronic sinus infections, as well as sinus headaches. These conditions can be debilitating, with symptoms such as headaches and facial pain, a runny or blocked nose, and bad breath. What happens If I delay the Sinus surgery? If you continue to put off treatment, your condition may worsen and you might risk any complications associated with emergency surgeries that are higher than planned elective surgeries. You can also develop comorbidities or multiple disorders if you prolong your surgery. You can avoid these problems by seeking help as soon as possible.
