what is...

Chronic Sinusitis?

Displaying continuous inflammation and tenderness of the sinuses, Chronic Sinusitis is defined by an assortment of symptoms, such as foul breath, chronic cough, exhaustion, headaches, sinus pressure, tenderness surrounding and behind the eyes, toothache, nasal discharge, raw swollen throat, postnasal drip, and frequent infections.

While minor and infrequent allergy related sinus infections can be effectively treated with antibiotics or medication, surgery should become an option to explore once the patient’s symptoms do not lessen and start to hinder effect their daily life and productivity.

Deviated Septum Surgery


  • Improved breathing: Alleviates nasal congestion and obstruction for easier, more comfortable breathing.
  • Reduced sinus infections: Enhances sinus drainage and removes obstructions, decreasing the frequency and severity of sinus infections.
  • Relief from facial pain and pressure: Clears blocked sinuses to help eliminate the facial pain and pressure often associated with chronic sinusitis.
  • Better sleep quality: Improved breathing can reduce snoring and sleep apnea symptoms, leading to more restful sleep and better overall health.
  • Enhanced sense of smell: Restoring proper airflow and sinus function can improve the sense of smell, which may have been impaired due to chronic sinusitis.
  • Reduced reliance on medications: Successful sinus surgery can decrease the need for ongoing use of decongestants, nasal sprays, or antibiotics to manage sinusitis symptoms.
  • Improved quality of life: By addressing the root causes of chronic sinusitis and providing lasting relief from its symptoms, sinus surgery can significantly enhance your overall well-being and daily comfort.

How does Sinus Surgery work?

Sinus surgery aims to restore proper sinus function by removing obstructions, correcting structural abnormalities, and enhancing sinus drainage. Dr. Guida performs Image Guided Sinus Surgery, which is a highly advanced type of endoscopic nasal surgery that allows the doctor to see the nasal passages in great detail on a nearby monitor during the operation. Dr. Guida is one of very few surgeons who has his own Image Guided Sinus Surgery Fusion machine in office.

The surgery involves the insertion of a thin, flexible endoscope with a camera and light into the nostrils. This allows the surgeon to visualize the nasal passages and sinus openings clearly. Specialized instruments are then used to remove any polyps, scar tissue, or other obstructions contributing to chronic sinusitis.

Dr. Guida doesn't pack the nose after the surgery, which makes recovery much more comfortable.

types of nose surgery

cosmetic rhinoplasty

A surgical procedure designed to improve the appearance and proportion of the nose in relation to the rest of the face. Cosmetic Rhinoplasty can address various aesthetic concerns, such as size, shape, bridge width, nostril asymmetry, or nasal tip angle, to create a more balanced and harmonious facial appearance.

Deviated Septum

The nasal septum is the cartilage that separates the left and right nasal cavities. When the septum is “deviated” or bent, either due to nasal trauma or a congenital abnormality, the airway through one or both nasal cavities can be obstructed, causing breathing difficulties and lead to chronic sinus disease.

Sinus Surgery

A specialized procedure aimed at treating chronic sinusitis, a persistent inflammation of the sinus cavities that can cause symptoms such as nasal congestion, facial pain, and recurrent infections. When non-surgical treatments fail to provide relief, sinus surgery offers a more definitive solution to address the underlying issues.
