Sinus endoscopy is an important diagnostic tool used in the office setting to diagnose, and in some cases treat, both acute and chronic sinus disease. Without the need for any numbing medication, a small endoscope is gently placed into each nostril allowing for endoscopic visualization of the sinus mucosa and sinus drainage pathways.
This diagnostic method helps to accurately diagnose sinus disease, and differentiates between allergies and infection.
This diagnostic tool helps to quickly identify the underlying disease process and leads to quick and successful treatment plans. During your consultation, Dr. Weiss will determine whether office based sinus endoscopy should be utilized to help diagnose and treat your sinus conditions.
