Like any surgery where pain is involved, anesthesia is used. With the advances in technology and medicine, these procedures are done with minimal bleeding, minor pain and the least possible recovery time. The most common is the endoscopic sinus surgery. This is where a magnifying camera is used to look inside the nose without creating incisions in the face or mouth. It can help relieve sinus pressure by removing nasal polyps (growths) or small amounts of bone and tissue. As the goal of any sinus surgery is to remove the materials blocking the passageways, different procedures are allocated for different symptoms. Asking questions to stay informed is the correct way to enter into a surgery.
The different procedures Dr. Saigal specializes in include: Balloon Sinus dilation and Image Guided Endoscopic Sinus Surgery using the Medtronic Surgical Navigation system. Balloon Sinus dilation is a minimally invasive procedure in which the doctor uses a small, flexible catheter to open up and drain blocked sinus passageways, restoring normal sinus function. When the sinus balloon is inflated, it gently restructures and widens the walls of the passageway while maintaining the integrity of the sinus lining.
Image Guided Endoscopic Sinus Surgery
Is like having ‘GPS’ when doing surgery in the sinuses to prevent injury to important structures nearby, including the eyes, brain and blood vessels. This type of surgery may be recommended for severe forms of chronic sinusitis, in cases when previous sinus surgery has altered anatomical landmarks, or where a patient’s sinus anatomy is very unusual, making typical surgery difficult. Image-guidance is a near-three-dimensional mapping system that combines computed tomography (CT) scans and real-time information about the exact position of surgical instruments using infrared signals. In this way, surgeons can navigate their surgical instruments through complex sinus passages and provide surgical relief more precisely.
