Sinusitis is a condition that leaves your sinuses inflamed. The sinuses produce mucus that drains into the nose. When the nasal passages are swollen, mucus backs up and causes pressure and, occasionally, an infection.
The types of sinusitis are categorized by the frequency of the condition:
Dr. Goodell may suggest sinus surgery in the following situations:
If all other treatments don’t help, you may choose surgery to enlarge the sinus passages. Most sinusitis surgeries involve minimally invasive, in-office procedures.
If Dr. Goodell doesn’t already have your full medical history, he records it in your records. Next, he performs an exam to determine the cause of your sinusitis and assess your readiness for surgery.
After identifying the cause of your sinusitis, Dr. Goodell performs further testing to examine all the factors that influence your condition. These medical tests may include the following:
Dr. Goodell offers in-house CT scans to check for sinus obstructions and to guide the surgery.
Dr. Goodell inserts a tiny fiber-optic camera into your nose to look for obstructions. Next, he uses micro-instruments to remove those obstructions from the sinuses. This outpatient procedure causes very little discomfort and requires very little recovery time.
Image-guided surgery uses a 3D mapping system from CT scans and infrared signals to guide the surgical instruments. Dr. Goodell often uses this type of surgery for men, women, and children with unusual or altered sinus anatomy.
