The goal of Endoscopic Sinus Surgery (ESS) is to reopen sinus ventilation and their “drainage" function after becoming physically obstructed either by scar tissue following recurrent infection or by nasal polyps. Medical treatment alone (antibiotics and nasal sprays) cannot solve the problem. Endoscopic sinus surgery is highly successful at improving the symptoms of nasal blockage, runny nose and for certain facial pain, while it is not aimed at improving the sense of smell; there may be some noticeable improvement.
The nose is partitioned in the middle by the nasal septum, dividing it into two nostrils. The nasal septum is made of cartilage and bone. Sometimes, due to injury or simply through natural growth it may be bent, buckled or deviated to one or both sides causing blockage by reducing the area available for air to flow through. A operation called Septoplasty is used to correct this abnormality in order to allow air to pass through either nostril more easily.
The goal of the procedure is to trim these lower most “side cushions” on the sidewall of the nose to improve nasal airway - or to increase the ability to breathe freely through the nose. We use either of two new minimally invasive procedures radiofrequency or submucous shaver depending on the nasal mucosa. Nasal packing is not necessary. Nasal drops are advised for a couple of days to maintain a clear nose. Patient1s are usually discharged two hours after the procedure. There are no black eyes, external incisions or change in shape of the nose.
“I wish to offer my extreme gratitude to Dr. Levente for dramatically improving my quality of life. Not only did he sort out my long standing issues with my sinuses but the good work he did for me has enabled me to go scuba diving again after a long lay off. I am eternaly grateful.”
