For a number of individuals, conventional sinus surgery is still appropriate. At The Sinus Center, however, it is given an unconventional twist. Employing image-guided surgery, Dr. Kandula precisely targets the blocked areas and opens them with refined endoscopic techniques. CT scans of the sinuses are entered into a computer, which “maps” a surgical course, much like a global positioning satellite. Surgical navigation enables Dr. Kandula to pinpoint the affected areas for treatment with extreme accuracy, while avoiding healthy tissues. A less aggressive approach than that of surgeons schooled years ago, it spares healthy tissue and bone. More targeted, less invasive procedures produce faster recoveries.
