Preparing for Your ENT Surgery

Before your ENT surgery, you will have an initial consultation with your surgeon. During this consultation, your surgeon will ask you about your medical history, including any previous surgeries, allergies, and medications you are currently taking. You will also discuss the reason for your surgery and what you can expect during and after the procedure.

Your surgeon may also perform a physical examination to assess your overall health and identify any potential risks or complications. This may include a nasal endoscopy, which involves inserting a thin, flexible tube with a camera into your nose to examine your sinuses and airways.

Once this is complete, your surgeon will also provide you with instructions on how to prepare for your surgery. This may include stopping certain medications, fasting for a certain amount of time before the procedure, and arranging for transportation to and from the hospital. We’ll also provide you with detailed aftercare instructions.

Our Advanced Surgical Techniques

ENT surgery involves a variety of surgical techniques depending on the condition being treated. Your doctor will determine which surgical technique is best for you based on your medical history and the condition being treated, and may utilize advanced technology to create your ideal outcome.

Here are some of the most common surgical techniques used in ENT surgery:

  • Endoscopic surgery: This type of surgery uses a small camera and specialized instruments to perform the surgery through small incisions.
  • Microscopic surgery: This type of surgery uses a microscope to magnify the surgical area, allowing for precise surgical techniques.
  • Laser surgery: This type of surgery uses a laser to remove or reshape tissue in the ear, nose, or throat.
  • Traditional surgery: This type of surgery involves making a larger incision to access the surgical area.

Your Recovery Period

The recovery time for ENT surgery varies depending on the type of surgery you have and your overall health. In general, you can expect to experience some discomfort and swelling after the surgery. Your doctor will provide you with instructions on how to care for yourself after the surgery, including pain management, wound care, and activity restrictions.

In most cases, you will need to take some time off from work or school to recover from the surgery. Your doctor will let you know how long you can expect to be out of commission. It's important to follow your doctor's instructions and attend all follow-up appointments to ensure a speedy and successful recovery.
