If you are suffering from sinus infections or other sinus-related conditions, we may recommend sinus surgery. At Bakersfield Sinus Center, we offer this procedure to help patients in and around Bakersfield and Porterville, CA, achieve long-lasting relief from their sinus conditions.
What is Sinus Surgery?
Sinus surgery is a type of surgery performed on the sinuses to enhance air flow and eliminate any clogging or blockage. At Bakersfield Sinus Center, we try to avoid surgery whenever possible. However, some patients may require a more immediate solution, especially if other treatments have not produced the desired results. We may recommend sinus surgery for any of the following conditions:
Why Choose Satish R. Vadapalli, MD for Your Sinus Surgery?
Dr. Vadapalli specializes in procedures involving the nose and the surrounding areas of the face. With over two decades of experience, he is an ideal candidate for performing sinus surgery and related procedures. No matter what treatment you are receiving, you can always expect the attentive and personalized care for which we are known.
What is the Sinus Surgery Treatment Like?
Nasal sinus surgery treatment is typically performed with general anesthesia in order to provide you with the safest and most comfortable treatment experience possible.
At Bakersfield Sinus Center, we often perform sinus surgery with an endoscopic technique. With this approach, we insert a small tube through the nostrils into the sinuses. Here, we use small, precise surgical tools to open the sinuses and eliminate any blockages.
Since the sinus surgery procedure is performed from inside the nose, all incisions will be hidden beneath the skin’s surface. There is no risk of visible scarring from sinus surgery.
What is the Sinus Surgery Recovery Like?
After sinus surgery, we will apply a bandage on the nose to ease swelling and reduce any bleeding. Although surgery is an extensive procedure, most patients are able to return home following their treatment. In addition, side effects are usually quite minor. You can expect some congestion, soreness, and minor bleeding during the days following your surgery. Patients are generally able to resume their normal activities within a few weeks.
What Results Can I Expect from Sinus Surgery?
After your initial recovery period, you should notice results from your sinus surgery. Patients can expect an enhanced breathing ability that contributes to an improved quality of life. Given that the sinuses are cleared during this procedure, these results should be long-lasting, if not permanent.
