Sinus surgery is a complicated surgery that requires fine surgical skills. Dr. Rohini has several years of experience in endoscopic sinus surgery which is the latest technique to treat nose and sinus pathology. There is better visualisation, less bleeding, lower risk of of complications and shorter recovery time compared to traditional surgical techniques. There are no external surgical scared made during the surgery, hence does not affect facial aesthetics.
Traditional surgical procedures for removal of sinus diseases are painful and requires longer post-operative care as it has many complications like:
So endoscopic surgery helps in reducing these risks without an external incision. There would be minor swelling, bleeding, and discomfort, after surgery, however, much less than traditions techniques. Endoscopic surgery is less painful and has better results.
Symptoms of acute sinusitis may include bad breath, cough, dental pain, diminished sense of smell, facial pain/pressure, fatigue, fever, nasal discharge, and nasal obstruction. Diagnosis may be made when patients have two or more symptoms and/or a thick, green or yellow nasal discharge. Acute sinusitis may last for four or more weeks. In cases where symptoms worsen after five days, persist after ten days or are more severe than those associated with a normal viral infection, an acute bacterial infection may be present.
When sinusitis is suspected, patients may receive a thorough ear, nose and throat examination from a specialist in which the facial features will be explored, particularly areas where swelling and redness of the skin occur over the cheekbone. Swelling and redness in the face is often worse in the morning and gradually improves as the patient remains upright. The sinuses may be felt and pressed by the physician for tenderness, and the teeth may be tapped to help determine if an inflamed paranasal sinus is present.
Nasal sprays, nose drops or oral decongestants may be recommended to help reduce congestion. Bacterial infections found in the sinuses are treated with antibiotics, whereas antihistamines may be used for the treatment of allergies. Fungal infections are typically treated with antifungal medication.
Asal endoscopy is a procedure which allows for visual examination of the nose and sinus drainage areas through the use of an endoscope, a special fiber optic instrument designed for the examination of the interior of a canal or hollow viscus.
What Our Happy Patients Had To Say !!
My sinus infection progressed to pneumonia, and I was admitted to the hospital. We discovered that I was extremely allergic to moulds. Dr. Rohini was recommended to me, and she conducted my Sinus Surgery in Chennai. Dr. Rohini removed the four membranes in my sinuses, and I was able to breathe easier for the first time. I had to sit up in bed to breathe before my surgery. I couldn't even consider going for a walk. I've now joined a gym and am going for a walk outside. I've been able to shed some pounds. During allergy season, I still have issues, but DR Rohini and I have been able to keep my condition under control. She is adamant about getting to the bottom of the matter. I discovered she is willing to fight for your quality of life and will not give up!
I had been suffering from chronic sinus infections for years, and it had gotten to the point where I couldn't even blow my nose. Antibiotics were no longer effective. I was in a bad mood. My primary care physician recommended three sinus specialist doctors in chennai, and when I asked which one he preferred, he suggested Dr. Rohini. I can't think of another person I'd rather see. We discussed my alternatives, but with an infection in my brain and polyps in my sinuses, surgery was the best option. My operation was over a year ago, and my life has drastically improved since then. I'm sleeping better and snoring less. Now that I can breathe, I can dance and go out more. The difference has been night and day, in my opinion.
Dr. Rohini used a headband to perform a CT scan, which revealed the location of my illnesses. She informed me that I needed surgery and that the CT pictures will be used to guide me through the procedure. Because of my previous surgery, I was initially sceptical. But I felt much better after it was completed. Dr. Rohini is a fantastic sinus specialist in chennai! She's kind and approachable, as well as meticulous. I even overheard the nurses in the hospital praising her as a fantastic doctor. Now that my infections are gone, I can go out and mingle. I'm doing things I haven't been able to do in over two years because I haven't felt good enough. I consider myself extremely fortunate to have found Dr. Rohini.
I've had sinus difficulties for a long time and have had three operations: the most recent was performed by Dr. Rohini, and compared to the prior two, the experience was absolutely great. When I awoke, I got up and had no recollection of having undergone a 2-hour operation. It felt as though I had simply slept off in my chair! I never even filled the pain medication prescription she provided me. She is the best Doctor for Sinus in Chennai. She showed me CT scans of my sinuses, which were almost entirely black because they were so packed with polyps, before my procedure. They are now clear and white when I go in for follow-up visits. I'm 61 years old, and thanks to Dr. Rohini, I believe I'll live to be 100!
