Ethmoidectomy and Sinus Surgery

Find Lasting Relief from Sinus Pain

Many Americans suffer from pain due to chronic sinusitis. Common symptoms include frequent headaches and sinus headaches that do not respond to traditional antibiotic or steroid treatments. Pharmaceuticals do not work well for all patients, and it is common for patients to consider sinus surgery as a more permanent solution to treating unrelenting sinus infections.

Chronic sinusitis is one of the most common chronic conditions in the United States, and appropriate surgical interventions have been developed to meet a growing need for sinus infection treatment aside from pharmaceutical treatments and home remedies. The reputable team of experienced ENT surgeons and support staff at miVIP can provide lasting solutions by performing an ethmoidectomy.

How Minimally Invasive Sinus Surgeries are Performed

It is common to undergo a CT scan and an MRI scan before surgery to help your surgeon plan for the surgery by reviewing 3D maps of your sinus cavities. Pre-surgical imaging is a useful diagnostic tool. Surgeons often use sinus image-guided surgery to improve accuracy and precision. Different types of sinus surgery will often result in small incisions made near the eye, inside the nose, or in the roof of the mouth in order to access the ethmoid sinus.

Surgeons will remove unwanted or damaged bone and tissue. Typically, patients will be under general anesthesia. An ethmoidectomy is used to create a larger sinus cavity by removing the partitions between the ethmoid sinuses. Larger sinus cavities can improve natural drainage as well as reduce the chances of future infections. Many surgeons will often opt to use an endoscope for improved visibility during the surgery.

What to Expect After Surgery

An ethmoidectomy is typically an outpatient procedure. It is important to follow physician post-operative care instructions at home for the best results. Patients frequently report sinus pain, congestion, and discharge after surgery. It is recommended that patients do not engage in rigorous activities until they have completely recovered. Patients can also expect lasting relief from chronic sinusitis symptoms.
