While it is certainly less expensive and more convenient to have sinonasal procedures performed in the office setting, sometimes it is best and necessary to utilize the operating room theatre for our patients. Typically, patients with more extensive sinus disease benefit from this approach.
Fortunately, more “comprehensive” sinus surgery doesn’t necessarily correlate to a more uncomfortable recovery period. In fact, many patients who undergo these procedures experience minimal post-operative pain. This is, at least in part, because Dr. Ludwick does “pack” sinuses and he does not utilize nasal splints after surgery.
Healing generally takes 6 weeks, but most patients are able to return to most of their usual activities the following day.
