Head & Neck Surgery Q & A

What Kinds of Conditions Require Head Surgery?

At ENT and Allergy Specialists, the practice’s expertise encompasses problems that affect your ears, your sinuses, and your nose. These three areas are prone to certain conditions that require surgical intervention.

To give you an idea of the types of surgery the doctors at ENT and Allergy Specialists perform, here are a few examples of conditions that might require surgical intervention:

  • Sinuses: If you suffer from chronic sinusitis that’s disrupting your life in significant ways, your doctor can turn to a surgical solution such as a balloon sinuplasty or sinus dilation to open up the drainage areas in your sinuses and prevent pressure from building up. ENT and Allergy Specialists also uses a new treatment for sinus surgeries called Propel® sinus stent. The stent replaces the post-surgical gauze that’s typically used to keep your sinuses open. Your surgeon places this stent into your sinuses after your surgery, and it slowly dissolves over the course of 45 days. During that time, Propel is keeping your sinuses open and delivering anti-inflammatory medications.
  • Nose: ENT and Allergy Specialists offers several types of nose surgeries, including rhinoplasty, turbinate reduction, and other nasal surgeries designed to help you breathe easier through your nose by opening up the airways and correcting structural issues.
  • Ears: If you suffer from muffled hearing or chronic ear infections, surgical intervention may provide the best solution. Your doctor can turn to a myringotomy or a eustachian tube dilation in these cases to clear up blockages and promote better drainage.

 

What Surgeries are Performed on the Neck?

The otolaryngologists at ENT and Allergy Specialists perform several types of surgery and diagnostic procedures on your throat, including:

 

This list is by no means comprehensive, but it gives you an idea of the scope of the work the doctors handle when it comes to your throat.

Rest assured, when it comes to surgery, the doctors at ENT and Allergy Specialists have extensive training using the latest endoscopic and minimally invasive techniques.

What is Endoscopic Surgery?

Endoscopic surgery refers to the use of tiny instruments and cameras to perform the work, minimizing tissue damage and risk.

With the understanding that your head and neck are susceptible areas, the doctors use existing openings, coupled with advanced guidance technologies and real-time 3D imaging during surgery to enhance both accuracy and safety. That also means there are less scarring and lower risk of infection.
