Minimally Invasive Sinus Procedures Q & A

What minimally invasive sinus procedures are available?

As a skilled surgeon, Dr. Reidy offers a variety of sinus surgeries using minimally invasive techniques, including:


Septoplasty is a procedure that focuses on straightening the cartilage and bone in your nose to correct a deviated septum. The septum is the space that lies between your nostrils and when crooked, can interfere with breathing.


Turbinoplasty is a procedure to remove the turbinate bones in your nasal passage to improve breathing. Allergies and other disorders can cause chronic inflammation in these bones that cause persistent nasal congestion.

Balloon sinuplasty

Balloon sinuplasty is a procedure to treat sinusitis. The process involves inserting a small balloon in the sinus passages and inflating it to clear blocked sinuses.

Endoscopic sinus surgery

Endoscopic sinus surgery focuses on removing diseased tissue or other obstructions in the sinus cavities to improve natural drainage.

If you’ve already had a sinus surgery that failed, Dr. Reidy also specializes in performing advanced revision sinus surgery.

Depending on your condition and the severity of your symptoms, Dr. Reidy can design a surgical plan to address your condition and provide you with long-lasting relief of sinus-related symptoms.

What can I expect during minimally invasive sinus procedures?

As a highly skilled endoscopic sinus surgeon, Dr. Reidy performs sinus surgery in-office using the latest minimally invasive techniques.

Outpatient sinus surgery requires no general anesthesia. Dr. Reidy uses a topical or local anesthetic to numb the surgical area and keep you comfortable throughout your procedure. He also carefully monitors your health and safety during the surgery.

Following your procedure, Dr. Reidy provides after-care instructions, including limitations in certain strenuous activities to ensure you heal properly. He also helps you manage any discomfort with medication recommendations.

What are the benefits of minimally invasive sinus procedures?

Endoscopic sinus procedures involve minimally invasive techniques to minimize trauma to your nose. These techniques also offer benefits over traditional open surgery that requires large incisions, such as:

  • Less pain
  • Fewer restrictions
  • Shorter recovery time
  • Reduced risk for infection

You also don’t have to worry about the risks associated with general anesthesia.
