Surgical correction or removal of deviated nasal septal (midline dividing) cartilage and/or bone that results in improved nasal airflow.
Radiofrequency shrinkage of the side wall tissue of the nose to improve nasal airflow.
Endoscopic maxillary antrostomy
Enlargement of the natural drainage hole of the maxillary sinus (largest sinus under the eye) using specially designed instruments under small camera vision, to allow for better ventilation of the sinus and clearance of mucus.
Removal of diseased sinus lining and bone of the smallest sinus between the eyes using micro instruments under small camera vision, to allow for better sinus ventilation and mucus clearance of all the major sinuses.
Endoscopic dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR)
Opening of the obstructed tear sac into the nose using micro instruments under small camera vision through the nose, to allow return of tear drainage into the nose.
Endoscopic sphenopalatine artery ligation
Tying off a major artery that supplies the nose using micro instruments under small camera vision to stop epistaxis (bleeding nose). May include electro-cautery to control bleeding vessels.
Sinus tumor resections including maxillectomy
Removal of sinuses where tumours originate (the maxillary sinus under the eyes being the most common), either open with face incisions, or endoscopically with small cameras through the nose and no facial incisions.
Skull base craniofacial tumour resections
Complex exposure through both the face and skull to remove tumors of the front part of the skull base, avoiding damage to vital structures like the brain.
