How do Pristyn Care’s ENT specialists treat sinusitis?
Sinusitis can be treated medically (nonsurgical treatments) or surgically. Medical treatment for sinusitis can include medications, natural remedies and lifestyle changes. The aim of medical treatment is to encourage the sinuses to drain naturally and reduce the swelling in the lining of the nose and sinuses. Prescribed medications and avoiding triggers can help manage mild sinusitis. The doctor may also ask you to use nasal drops or sprays to decongest the nose and to improve the sinus drainage. However, sprays or drops for sinusitis should only be used as a temporary solution and is not a permanent solution for sinusitis. The doctor may also recommend a combination of treatment options to see what works for you. But if several treatment options and lifestyle modifications fail to cure sinusitis, surgery should be considered. Our ENT surgeons in Hyderabad have years of experience in treating recurrent or chronic sinusitis with minimally invasive sinusitis surgery. Functional endoscopic sinusitis surgery or FESS is considered the most successful and efficient treatment for sinusitis that does not get better with medical treatments.
Is surgery really needed for sinusitis?
The answer to the above question varies from individual to individual, depending on symptoms, severity, grade or type of sinusitis and how sinusitis has impacted the individual’s quality of life. If the patient does not respond to medical treatment (which will include medications, decongestants, nasal sprays/ drops), surgery can be the solution. Surgical treatment for sinusitis has dramatically evolved over the last decade. Functional endoscopic sinus surgery is a minimally invasive surgery that provides relief from chronic and recurrent sinusitis. The benefit of this innovative surgical technique is that the surgery can be performed as a day care procedure, and has a much shorter recovery period. There is no need for nasal packing after endoscopic sinus surgery, which most patients previously found very traumatic and uncomfortable.
The goal of FESS or endoscopic sinusitis surgery is to remove blockages and to open up the passages to allow natural ventilation and drainage. The surgery also drains the sinuses and prevents fluid from building up in the sinuses again. Sinus surgery has a very good success rate of 80 % to 90% and most people who undergo endoscopic sinus surgery report a significant improvement in symptoms and associated complications. The endoscopic sinus surgery performed by sinus specialists in Hyderabad can also help you to breathe easily and it can help provide relief from facial pain, sinusitis headaches, and restore a normal sense of smell. Having this operation could make a remarkable difference to your quality of life as well as to your overall health.
Should I have surgery for sinusitis?
Common reasons for sinus surgery include-
- Recurrent or chronic sinusitis even after medical treatment
- Sinus disease caused due to a fungal infection
- Sinus or nasal or polyps
- Structural abnormalities of the sinuses or nose
- Sinus infection that has spread to bones surrounding the sinuses
- Cancer of the sinuses
Having any surgery can be a big decision and you should discuss this carefully with a specialist surgeon. The doctor will thoroughly diagnose your condition and look into your symptoms, medical history and impact of the condition on your overall health and quality of life. After the diagnosis, the doctor would be able to tell which type of sinusitis you have. Depending on that, treatment will be decided.
Sinus surgery will only be recommended if you have chronic or recurring sinusitis problems that have not responded to the other treatment options. If surgery seems to be the most promising treatment for you, the doctor will brief you about the procedure and ensure that you understand the risks and benefits of the procedure.
