What is Nasal Endoscopy Surgery?
Nasal Endoscopy Surgery is the procedure conducted by the ear, nose, and throat physician. During the surgery, the instrument is inserted into your nose and weaved through your sinus and nasal passages to generate images of the area being examined. The procedure helps with diagnosing and treating different health conditions.
Why might I need a Nasal Endoscopy?
You might need a Nasal Endoscopy if your physician requests more information about difficulties such as:
- Nasal congestion
- Nasal blockage
- Nasal and sinus infection (rhinosinusitis)
- Nasal polyps
- Nasal tumors
- Loss of ability to smell
- Cerebrospinal fluid leak
Be sure to set up an appointment with us today at the Surgery Center if you are experiencing these symptoms.
What can I expect from the surgery?
To make the surgery as least painful as possible, we numb the area before inserting the endoscope. We also apply a nasal decongestant which reduces swelling. This enables the endoscope to pass easily through the nasal membranes. This type of surgery is minimally invasive and rarely painful. At the Surgery Center, we do all we can take make our patients as comfortable as possible.
If you are considering nasal endoscopy surgery, contact the Surgery Center of Fort Collins for more information.
