Image-Guided Surgery

Chronic sinusitis is a condition that affects over 26 million Americans each year. While medications are successful in treating the condition for a majority of people—many aren’t so fortunate. For those cases, a more advanced treatment that includes surgical procedures is the only solution. 

To achieve the most accurate results and remain minimally invasive, Advanced Sinus Relief Centers turns to technology. Image-guided surgery is a revolutionary endoscopic-aided procedure that keeps invasiveness to a minimum and delivers precise results.

How The Process Works

Using an endoscope—a flexible tube with a built-in light ring and camera embedded on the end is inserted into the nasal passage. This allows Dr.Wiggenhorn to get a much clearer image than any imaging technology. Typically, the ethmoid sinus is expanded to allow an unobstructed view of the maxillary, sphenoid, and frontal sinuses.

Usage of the endoscope—often in HD or 4K resolution, gives Dr. Wiggenhorn the ability to work with a level of precision not available in the past. He can view the problem areas and magnify them to see detail without damaging the surrounding area.

Image-guided surgery can assist in many procedures such as turbinate reduction, nasal polyp removal, and other obstructions. The more precise moves a surgeon can make the less post-op irritation there will be. Image-guided surgery can deliver that precision and peace of mind.

Benefits of Image-Guided Surgery

The benefits of image-guided surgery include:

  • Since the entire procedure is done within the nose, external scarring is very minimal.
  • The procedure is minimally invasive which results in less removal of normal nasal passage tissue. The translates into minimal pain and far less bleeding than traditional sinus surgery. 
  • Overall, the recovery time is typically shorter and less stressful than open surgery.
