Minimally Invasive Approach to Sinus Surgery
Faster Recovery Ė Better Results
Sacred Heart Hospital on the Emerald Coast utilizes the most advanced surgical techniques for the treatment of sinusitis including balloon sinuplasty and computer aided navigation during surgery led by Dr. Sean McWilliams. These techniques allow for a safer, faster and more effective surgery with decreased downtime and pain in his patients.
During this minimally invasive approach to sinus surgery, blocked sinus passageways are re-opened, restoring normal sinus drainage and function. Patients experience a faster recovery time and are typically able to return to work or school within a matter of days.
In the past, traditional sinus surgery involved an open incision which required bone and tissue removal in order to open blocked sinus passageways requiring extensive nasal packing that was very painful to remove after surgery. Luckily for patients in the Destin area sinus surgery can now be performed completely through the nostrils, leaving no scar and making recovery much easier for the patient.
Dr. McWilliams has effectively treated countless patients of all ages from around the country with this minimally invasive approach over the past 12 years. Other ear, nose and throat procedures at Sacred Heart Hospital on the Emerald Coast include:
- Ear tubes
- Parotid gland surgery
- Pediatric ENT surgery
