Sinus Surgery Directory

Sinus surgery may become necessary if the sinuses become very infected or if there is cancer in the sinuses. Usually, doctors can remove damaged tissue while sometimes leaving an opening to help the infection to drain. After surgery, your doctor will probably instruct you to use nasal washes, avoid blowing your nose or bending forward, and to use a humidifier. When cancer is involved, radiation will be used along with surgery. Follow the links below to find WebMD's comprehensive coverage about what could cause you to need sinus surgery, how the surgery is performed, what to expect, and much more.
