In brief: Sinus surgery?

if you have recurrent sinusitis, you may be a candidate for sinus surgery.
Be sure to have your nose evaluated by a board certified otolaryngologist.

In brief: Sinus surgery

If the sinus opening is larger then there is less likelihood of the polyps returning.

In brief: Better Drainage

Performing sinus surgery to open up the blocked sinuses, while fixing a deviated septum at the same time will allow the sinuses to more effectively drain and clear the mucus.
A septoplasty and surgery to open and drain the sinuses will allow better airflow, reduce the sensation of nasal obstruction and help to decrease the frequency of sinus infections.
