The goal of surgery is to carefully remove the thin, delicate bone and mucous membranes that block the drainage pathways of the sinuses. The term “endoscopic” refers to the use of small fiberoptic telescopes that allow all of the surgery to be performed through the nostrils, without the need for any skin incisions. Endoscopic sinus surgery is generally performed on an outpatient basis, and our patients suffer only a very mild discomfort with a relatively short recovery time.
When treating chronic sinusitis with surgery, Dr. Scott uses the Medtronic Fusion System to help her give you the best treatment available. The Fusion ENT Navigation System is the first and only image-guided navigational system for ENT surgeries, providing the maximum amount of information about your unique anatomy for a safer and more thorough procedure. By using the Medtronic system, our patients will receive a more precise surgery with a better outcome.
