Common Reasons for Surgery on Your Sinuses and When It's Necessary

Do you suffer from chronic sinus infections and have tried all treatment options available to no avail? Perhaps surgery is your only hope of correcting your sinus issue. We are here to inform you about the common reasons and necessity for surgery.

Arizona Ear, Nose & Throat Physicians in Sun City West, AZ, explain that you feel miserable when your sinuses do not drain properly. Additionally, you can develop some secondary chronic sinus infections. 

Many of the surgical procedures we perform involve endoscopic procedures, meaning that the procedure is less invasive than a traditional surgical procedure. Endoscopic surgical procedures are more precise, have faster recovery times, and have fewer side effects. 

Some common reasons for surgery to correct your sinus condition and feel great again include the following. 

  • Polyps
  • Growth in the sinuses/nose
  • Damaged sinus tissue
  • Chronically infected sinuses
  • An obstruction in the nasal passages, such as a foreign object

Once we examine your sinuses, we can only tell you how extensive the surgery on your sinuses may be. Sometimes, we are required to remove damaged sinus tissue, and sometimes, it is a matter of removing pieces of bone so that it corrects the problem to help your sinuses drain well again.
