Don’t Let Fear of Sinus Surgery Extend Your Suffering

End Sinus Pain – with an Alternative to Sinus Surgery at the North Texas Sinusitis Center

You want the pain to stop. You’re suffering from sinusitis, but surgery comes with fear, pain, recovery, and permanent changes to your body.

Are you sure that surgery is the only way to prevent your pain and discomfort from sinusitis and nasal congestion?

The truth is, there are safe alternatives to endoscopic sinus surgery that can bring you relief.

Endoscopic Sinus Surgery Should Be Your LAST Step

Endoscopic sinus surgery is an invasive procedure that corrects a plumbing problem in your nose. This plumbing problem leads to nasal congestion and sinusitis. Sinus surgery, which can fix this plumbing problem, involves cutting out parts of the tissues and bone in your nose.

Endoscopic sinus surgery is performed with general anesthesia in an operating room and will require recovery time. There are also numerous follow-up ENT appointments to clean the scabs in your nose. Learn more about recovery from sinus surgery here.

Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery (FESS) is permanent; however, it is certainly not your only option.

No single treatment is right for everyone. You owe it to yourself to explore your options before deciding on a permanent, irreversible surgery. Here are your options to avoid sinus surgery while embracing relief from your sinusitis and nasal congestion:

  • Balloon Sinuplasty

    Are your issues caused by a blocked sinus pathway? Balloon Sinuplasty is a minimally-invasive procedure performed in our offices here at North Texas Sinusitis Center. You will be given local anesthesia, have a small balloon inserted in your blocked air pathways, inflated, and removed in about an hour.

    With your airways now opened, you will be able to breathe out of your nose and avoid pesky sinus infections and congestion immediately.

  • Radiofrequency Turbinate Reduction (RFTR)

    Radiofrequency Turbinate Reduction (RFTR) reduces the size of your turbinates when they are obstructing your air pathways. This procedure is minimally-invasive and performed in the comfort of our offices. Learn more about turbinate reduction.

Don’t Rush Into Surgery or Delay Relief: Act Now to Give Yourself Options AND Relief

Do nothing and tomorrow will bring the same. Continuing to struggle with each of your sinus infections and each episode of nasal congestion only delays relief, and it limits the options that you have to relieve them.

The truth is, chronic sinusitis and chronic nasal congestion don’t resolve without correcting the problem. Your problem may continue to worsen until you take action. And the longer you wait, the fewer options you will have. Waiting may result in endoscopic sinus surgery becoming the only option you have left. Don’t wait; schedule your appointment today.
