Patients suffering from chronic sinus symptoms often receive relief via endoscopic nasal polyp surgery. This procedure removes polyps and corrects any issues that are contributing to inflammation and polyp development.

Nasal Polyp Surgery Overview

Nasal polyps can often be difficult to treat.  Your doctor may recommend nose drops or nasal sprays to reduce inflammation before recommending surgery. However, these medications often cause side effects such as irritation, sore throat and nose bleeds. If your polyps do not improve with medication, or are abnormally large, your doctor may proceed with nasal polyp surgery.

Nasal Polyp Surgery Procedure

Nasal polyp surgery is performed to remove polyps and decrease inflammation and polyp development. The surgery is performed with the use of an endoscope, a tiny and thin lighted instrument that fits directly into the nose allowing the surgeon to see inside the nose and sinuses.  Your doctor will then use small surgical tools to remove the polyps and remove any obstructions.

Recovery + Outlook

Nasal polyp surgery is an outpatient procedure and you should plan to have someone drive you home, as you will not be able to drive yourself.

After surgery, at home care is essential to make sure your sinuses heal correctly. Your doctor will require the use of a saline rinse and rest for approximately two weeks.

Nasal polyps surgery offers immediate relief from sinus symptoms and quality of life.  Most of our patients report substantial relief from breathing difficulties, congestion, nose bleeds and sinus infections shortly after surgery. Nasal polyps occasionally grow back within a few years and may require a repeat procedure to relieve symptoms.

Want To Reduce Nasal Polys Without Surgery?

Greater Miami ENT offers a non-surgical procedure for patients who suffer from repeat nasal polyps with SINUVA™ (mometasone furoate) Sinus Implant. SINUVA is proven to reduce polyps and nasal congestion and obstruction.

What is SINUVA

SINUVA is a sinus implant that treats nasal polyps without surgery. During a routine office visit, Dr. Name will use topical and/or local anesthesia to numb the patient’s nose and sinuses. SINUVA is then placed in the sinus cavity through the nasal opening.

How SINUVA works

Its innovative design provides a 2-in-1 approach: it is designed to open in the sinus cavity and release anti-inflammatory medicine to treat nasal polyps for up to 90 days.

SINUVA benefits (At Day 90)

  • Significantly reduces nasal obstruction and congestion
  • Significantly improves impaired sense of smell

The most common adverse reactions observed in a clinical trial were bronchitis, upper respiratory or middle ear infection, headache, light-headedness, asthma and nose bleed. SINUVA is indicated for adults with nasal polyps who have had ethmoid sinus surgery.
