SINUS SURGERY

Dr. Kwiatkowski will first try other treatments before deciding to try sinus surgery. When the surgery is performed in the proper fashion, it will not lead to any discomfort. It will also not lead to many complications.

Why a doctor can recommend the surgery

The reason for any patient to get sinus surgery is to remove anything that may be blocking the drainage pathways or the sinuses themselves. Reasons for this may be :

  • A small bone
  • Nasal polyp
  • Mucous membranes issues
  • Growths or tumors that block the sinus or nasal passage
  • Damaged or swollen tissue

Dr. Kwiatkowski from Las Vegas may recommend the surgery to treat different issues like nasal polyps or sinusitis.

Sinusitis: sinusitis is a type of swelling in the nasal passage or nasal sinuses. It may be the result of a sinus infection. A person who suffers sinusitis may have the following symptoms:

  • Pressure on the forehead, eyes, or nose
  • Discolored and thick nasal drainage
  • Stuffy nose
  • Headaches or head congestion
  • Post-nasal drip or a bad taste in the mouth
  • Change in hearing or blocked ears.

Nasal Polyps: Nasal polyps are swellings in the lining of the nasal passages or sinuses. They can vary in size and most of the time they are tear drop shaped.

Some people suffer clusters or large polyps which can cause breathing issues or may affect their sense of smell. They may also block the sinuses, which can cause infections.

People who suffer from nasal polyps may have the following symptoms:

  • Recurrent sinus infection
  • Runny nose
  • Blocked nose
  • Post-nasal drip
  • Facial pain
  • Snoring
  • Headaches
  • Sleep apnea.

The surgery may also be needed to treat other problems, such as abnormal growths, ongoing blockage, and inflammation in the sinuses or nasal passages.
