Sinus Surgery Sinus surgery is a safe and effective solution for individuals who suffer from severe and chronic sinus infections. Since chronic sinus infections (known as sinusitis) are often undiagnosed or misdiagnosed, they are left untreated, or are treated with antibiotics—which offer a short-term solution to a recurring problem. Sinus surgery stops the cycle of recurrent sinus infections, providing much-needed relief for patients who have suffered from sinusitis for years. Several recent innovations have greatly improved the results of sinus surgery. Dr. Guida performs these procedures in his NY office using the latest revolutionary technology, including CT scans and endoscopes. These advanced imaging and navigation tools allow Dr. Guida to execute each sinus surgery with precision to achieve optimal results with minimal recovery time. Sinus surgery can also safely be combined with cosmetic surgery, so that patients can correct both functional and cosmetic issues with only one surgery and one recovery period.
