Hybrid Sinuplasty

What is a Hybrid Sinuplasty?

Resolve ENT is the only center in the Greater Chicago area to offer Hybrid Sinuplasty.  Hybrid sinuplasty is built on the foundation that each patient and their disease are unique.  With this in mind, we tailor the ideal combination of procedures for the individual in the setting of their choice.  No other Chicago center offers this.

While Dr. Elangovan generally recommends this procedure for recurring and chronic sinusitis, patients may also find Hybrid Sinuplasty relieves one or more of the following symptoms:

Why Hybrid Sinuplasty?

  • Individually tailored approach maximizing benefits and minimizing risks
  • Safer than standalone traditional sinus surgery
  • Effective
  • Less pain
  • Quick Recovery
  • Comfortable and convenient setting

What Can I Expect During my Hybrid Sinuplasty?

After careful discussion with you and thorough review of your test results, Dr. Elangovan r will design a procedure or combination of procedures best suited to resolve your issues.  These procedures can be fully performed in our state-of-the-art office for greatest comfort and convenience.  Alternatively, these can be performed in a surgical center. 

The procedures are performed entirely through the nose without any visible incisions or bruises.  A combination of endoscopes (small lighted cameras), specialized nasal instruments, sinus balloons, and dissolvable implants are utilized to achieve the optimal results.

What Can I Expect After my Hybrid Sinuplasty?

Typically patients experience mild pain for about 2-3 days after surgery.  A brief course of antibiotics and nasal saline rinse after surgery is needed to promote healing.  Most return to work within 2-3 days.  Strenuous activity is avoided for about 2-3 weeks.

How Effective is Hybrid Sinuplasty?

Outcomes with this specifically tailored approach are excellent.  Patients notice significant improvement in sinus issues, nasal obstruction and their overall quality of life.
