When people with chronic sinusitis consider sinus surgery, the prospect can seem daunting. Fears about pain, lost work, anesthesia, and the healing process are typical.
Some consider surgery an extreme option. Others have heard horror stories about older and invasive techniques like removal of gauze packing and long recovery periods. Importantly, sinus surgery has evolved, improving the experience for patients.
Ultimately, the concerns point to the biggest question of all: What will help to make my sinus surgery more effective?
