Tired of Being Tired? Endoscopic Sinus Surgery Can Help
Sinus symptoms can affect your life in countless ways. Obstructed breathing can lead to headaches and sleep difficulties; congestion can affect your comfort and energy; and infections can lay you up for days or weeks at a time. What all these symptoms have in common is fatigue – your sinuses are essential to the air you breathe to live, and when they experience distress it can impair your ability to function effectively.
Endoscopic sinus surgery is the answer. Most sinus symptoms arise from a few sources – allergies, viruses, bacterial infections, or anatomy – and if these keep recurring, it is time for a more aggressive response. Many ENTs will start you out with sprays and other medical interventions first, but the time may come when such medical approaches still leave you gasping for breath – and desperate for energy. Surgery represents the next level of care, and the only permanent way to rid your life of these symptoms.
Endoscopic sinus surgery is indicated for a wide array of sinus issues, including nasal polyps, chronic sinusitis, septal deviations, and enlarged turbinates. The surgery is performed under general anesthesia and uses optic-fibre guided microsystems introduced through the nostrils. Depending upon the goals for the procedure, it could last for up to a few hours and include the aid of real-time CT scan images. When the offending or diseased tissue has been reshaped or removed, you can begin your speedy recovery.
Endoscopic sinus surgery is the only way to correct structural abnormalities and remove persistently infected tissues. To get started with an effective and lasting solution, please don’t hesitate to contact my Los Angeles sinus surgery offices today.
