Do I Need Sinus Surgery To Treat My Sinusitis?

It is not always necessary to have surgery for sinusitis, but in some cases, it may be the best option. If your sinusitis is chronic and does not respond to other treatments, surgery may be recommended. Surgery can also be an option if you have recurrent sinus infections or if you have a structural problem that is causing your sinusitis.

What Are the Benefits of Sinus Surgery?

Sinus surgery is a good option for people who have chronic sinus infections or sinusitis. The surgery involves opening the sinuses to allow for better drainage and ventilation. The benefits of sinus surgery include relief from sinus infections, improved sense of smell, and improved quality of life.

Sinusitis Treatment FAQ

Do I need to see a doctor for my sinusitis?

In most cases, sinusitis is caused by a viral infection and will eventually clear up on its own. However, it can also be caused by bacteria, allergies, or structural problems in the nose. For this reason, it is important to speak to a doctor if you think you might have sinusitis. They will be able to diagnose the cause of your symptoms and advise you on the best course of treatment. Treatments for sinusitis may include taking decongestants, using a humidifier, applying warm compresses to the face and, in some cases, antibiotics may be necessary. Sinusitis usually clears up within two weeks but can last for longer in some people. In severe cases, surgery may be required to clear the blockages in the sinuses.

What is the recovery from sinus surgery?

Recovery from sinus surgery typically takes about two weeks, and most people experience minimal discomfort during this time. You can generally expect to return to your normal activities within a few days. However, you may need to avoid strenuous activity for several weeks.
