Dealing with sinus pain can be excruciating and can severely impact your life if this is a chronic issue. When you find that you’re consistently dealing with sinusitis or that your pain is no longer responsive to medication, it might be time to consider another option. Dr. Gordon Siegel at Midwest ENT in Chicago, IL, can explain when you might need sinus surgery and how it could help you.
When Sinus Surgery Is Needed
If you’re dealing with sinusitis, your doctor will likely prescribe different medications to help flush out the sinuses and give you relief from any pain you might be dealing with. If you are dealing with recurring sinusitis and medication no longer seems to help, our ENT Dr. Siegel at Midwestern ENT in Chicago, IL, may need to perform sinus surgery.
Sinus surgery can help open up the sinuses and help improve drainage. Our ENT doctor will perform some tests to determine what could be causing your chronic sinusitis and find out what procedure may be the best for you. Our doctor will choose between functional endoscopic sinus surgery, image-guided surgery, or Caldwell Luc operation. Each surgery has different methods to treat specific issues that could cause your chronic sinus infections.
It will take time to fully heal after your surgery, but you should find that it’s easier to breathe normally and that there is a severe decrease in the number of sinus infections that you experience on a regular basis. This can help you start functioning regularly again and can help with many of the symptoms that can accompany sinus infections.
