Functional ENT Surgery
Modern otolaryngology provides for the treatment of patients not only with acute inflammatory diseases, but also surgical interventions in the nose, ears, pharynx. Functional ENT surgery is a section of medicine that provides the solutions of any complexity in an innovative way. Currently it is especially important to develop minimally invasive surgical techniques with the use of cold plasma, endoscopic equipment, operating microscopes, shaver systems.
They allow a surgeon to perform all necessary interventions with minimal damage to healthy tissue.
Typically, patients are faced with diseases that do not require an ENT surgical intervention: - acute inflammatory processes are otitis, pharyngitis, tonsillitis;>
The treatment of such patients is usually conservative. Antibiotics and anti-inflammatory medicine is prescribed. The surgery in those cases, as a rule, is not needed.
When there is a need for surgery
The surgical intervention is necessary when a disease can no longer be treated by medicine. The surgery is performed in a hospital by a surgeon by referral from an ENT specialist.
- Issues addressed by Functional ENT Surgery:
- deformation, curvature of nasal septum, which interfere with normal breathing of the patient;
- benign formations of the nasal cavity - polyps, cysts, foreign bodies of the paranasal sinuses;
- snoring treatment with the help of Functional ENT Surgery;
- treatment of adenoids and hypertrophy of tonsils using modern endoscopic and shaver systems;
- removal of palatine tonsils by the method of coblation.
ENT surgery provides a range of possibilities to make the operation as safe as possible and to shorten the rehabilitation period. All the surgeries are performed by the surgeon in the sterile conditions, using disposable consumables. A surgeon applies biocompatible and absorbable suture materials to eliminate painful sensations in the postoperative period.
A team of specialists participates in the treatment planning. A consultation of the ENT specialist, therapist, cardiologist and anesthesiologist is necessary.
The application of techniques and protocols of Functional Surgery allows eliminating the anatomical imperfections and the effects of inflammatory processes in the tissue. Minimally invasive methods help patients to restore the functional integrity of the operated organ. An integrated approach is important in the treatment of any disease. The patient is to receive antibiotic therapy, vitamins and immunomodulators after the operation. Therapeutic gymnastics and a complex of physiotherapeutic procedures are to be used during the rehabilitation period.
