ENT (“Ear, Nose, Throat”) surgery is a medical specialty practiced by ENT surgeons. ‘Otolaryngologists’, as they are referred to in the medical community, can be a bit of a tongue twister for the lay person, which is why they are better known as ENT specialists. This includes related structures like the sinuses and larynx. While general physicians may be able to treat problems that affect these areas, they can only offer medical treatment. ENT specialists are physicians trained in both the medical and surgical management of such health conditions, which is why they are also referred to as Head and Neck Surgeons.
Sinus surgery has truly evolved over the years. Sinus surgery was once performed through external incisions (surgical cuts on the face and in the mouth), required extensive nasal packing, caused significant pain and discomfort, and was often followed by a long recovery period.
With recent advances in technology, including the nasal endoscope, sinus surgery is now commonly performed entirely through the nose, without face or mouth incisions. The nasal endoscope is a small, lighted metal telescope placed into the nostril. The endoscope allows the surgeon to see inside the nose and sinuses, usually with a special video camera attached to the endoscope. Today, endoscopic sinus surgery is typically done with minimal nasal packing, mild pain, and short recovery times.
