Endoscopic Sinus Surgery Provides Proven Relief from Rhinosinusitis- Atlanta ENT

Chronic rhinosinusitis can be a pain to deal with, but is it really worth fixing? After all, who wants to spend money on a procedure that may or may not fix the problem? Unfortunately, many Americans decide that they would rather just live with their conditions and be miserable than seek out the help that they desperately need.

More than 24 million Americans come down with rhinosinusitis each year, usually due to viral infections, and the vast majority of those cases will simply go away on their own in a few days, never to recur. Or perhaps they recur once every few years. Those patients likely don’t need endoscopic sinus surgery.

However, if you are one of those people suffering from chronic rhinosinusitis, it probably makes you feel completely miserable. While the condition can potentially be managed using a combination of antibiotics and anti-inflammatory drugs, they’re managing the disease, not curing it.

Studies have shown that the majority of people who undergo endoscopic sinus surgery to correct their chronic rhinosinusitis not only enjoyed a higher quality of life than those who didn’t, they also needed fewer antibiotics.

Endoscopic sinus surgery doesn’t involve scars or scalpels, but is done from the inside of your sinuses using an endoscope, while performing the surgery by entering your sinus through your nose. This means no stitches, no facial scars, and only limited recovery time.

If your rhinosinusitis is running your life, contact your Atlanta ENT specialist to see about taking back control of your life!
