I specialize in ear, nose and throat disorders. I sub-specialize in rhinology, which is the study of the nose and the sinuses. The most common symptoms we’ll see in rhinology are nasal obstruction, post-nasal drip, facial pain.
One of the biggest misconceptions about sinus surgery and rhinology is that it has to necessarily be painful. A lot of people will maybe have relatives who many years ago had sinus surgery and people used to scrape out the sinuses and put packing in for a few days, so people couldn’t breathe at all. Well, now, we have the ability with a lot of our newer technologies to have patients wake up in the recovery room and they can breathe right there and go back to work within a couple of days from sinus surgery, in many cases.
