Sinus Surgery

When Sinus Surgery becomes an option:

  • The surgery helps with stopping or reducing infections and helps with breathing through your nose, which are the main reasons for offering Sinus Surgery.
  • Surgery may sometimes help with an improved sense of smell, improving headaches and better sleep, but these are not by themselves normally a reason for doing Sinus Surgery.
  • The reason is that there are some risks involved in doing Sinus Surgery which will be fully explained to you before surgery.
  • We have access to a Cone Beam CT Scan at Mediclinic Morningside that gives a roadmap to help safely operate in this delicate area of the body. The detail is amazing, with a pixel size of 25 microns.
  • Image guidance goes further by showing Dr. Tselapedi-Sekeitto where an instrument is on the scan images during the actual surgery. This is normally reserved for revision or very challenging cases.
  • Sinus Surgery is about 90% successful in reducing or stopping sinus infections but you may need to continue long term with nasal sprays to keep the benefit of the surgery.
