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.
