Removing Nasal Polyps Safely
Nasal polyps are small, pearl-colored growths that can line the interior walls of the nose or sinuses. They arise when inflammation degrades the cell walls, allowing them to take on water and become swollen. Although smaller polyps may resolve on their own with medication and proper precautions, larger polyps can become chronic and difficult to treat. For these, the safest approach is nasal polyp removal surgery.
This simple procedure is conducted through your nostrils using an endoscope, or a tiny tube that guides medical instruments to their desired targets. Endoscopic sinus surgery makes use of very small incisions, with minimal trauma to surrounding tissues. Once the endoscope is led to the source of the polyps, they are gently removed.
The results can be immediate. Once these obstructions no longer claim a foothold in your airways, it is not unusual to experience instant relief from wheezing, congestion, and the headaches associated with large nasal polyps. The key to treating this issue effectively is to work with an experienced Los Angeles sinus expert who conducts surgeries such as this on a daily basis.
