Endoscopic Orbital Surgery (Through Nose)
Tear Duct Surgery (DCR)
The cause of your blocked tear duct will determine which treatment is right for you. Sometimes, more than one treatment or procedure is needed before a blocked tear duct is completely corrected.If an infection is suspected, your doctor will likely prescribe antibiotic eyedrops. If a tumor is causing your blocked tear duct, treatment will focus on the cause of the tumor. Surgery may be performed to remove the tumor, or your doctor may recommend using other treatments to shrink it. Treatment options for nontumor-blocked tear ducts vary from simple observation to surgery.
Endoscopic CSF Rhinorrhoea Repair
A cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leak occurs when the fluid surrounding the brain leaks and comes in contact with the nose, sinuses, or ear. The fluid is typically contained around the brain and spinal cord by a thick covering called the dura. The dura can be damaged by certain surgeries, head injuries, and tumors. Leaks sometimes occur spontaneously.
Symptoms typically include a headache that worsens when you sit up and eases when you lie down, and clear drainage from the nose when leaning forward or straining (CSF rhinorrhea), or the ear (CSF otorrhea).
A timely diagnosis and repair is important because if left untreated, the condition can lead to meningitis, brain infection, stroke, and death. Endoscopic advances allow most leaks to be repaired through the nose with small scopes and instruments. CSF leaks from the ear typically require an external incision.
Pituitary Tumour Surgery (Endoscopic trans-sphenoid)
This is the most common way to remove pituitary tumors. Transsphenoidal means that the surgery is done through the sphenoid sinus, a hollow space in the skull behind the nasal passages and below the brain. The back wall of the sinus covers the pituitary gland.For this approach, the neurosurgeon makes a small incision along the nasal septum (the cartilage between the 2 sides of the nose) or under the upper lip (above the upper teeth).
To reach the pituitary, the surgeon opens the boney walls of the sphenoid sinus with small surgical chisels, drills, or other instruments depending on the thickness of the bone and sinus. A newer approach is to use an endoscope, a thin fiber-optic tube with a tiny camera lens at the tip. In this approach, the incision under the upper lip or the front part of the nasal septum is not needed, because the endoscope allows the surgeon to see well through a small incision that is made in the back of the nasal septum. The surgeon passes instruments through normal nasal passages and opens the sphenoid sinus to reach the pituitary gland and remove the tumor. The use of this technique is limited by the tumor’s position and the shape of the sphenoid sinus.
Skull Base Surgery and Otoneurosurgery
Sometimes referred to as nose reshaping or a ‘nose job’. The aim of the operation is to improve the cosmetic appearance of the nose and or the function ie help with breathing. If you are unhappy about the shape of your nose or have a blocked nose because of a bend in the septum (the cartilage and bone in the middle of the nose) and an external deformity, an operation may help.Sometimes to straighten out a bent septum an optimal result is most achievable by a rhinoplasty operation. The operation is meant to change the way your nose looks but still result in a natural appearance.
It is important that peoples’ expectations about the effects of surgery are not unrealistic. People who believe that their lives will change if they have cosmetic surgery may often be disappointed. The most common features people are concerned with are deviations of the nose to one side, a nasal hump, a nasal depression, too wide or too a narrow nose, a bulbous nasal tip or a drooping nasal tip.
Micro-laryngeal Surgeries for Voice Disorders
Microscopic voice surgery, otherwise known as microlaryngeal surgery, is a minimally invasive procedure used to correct voice disorders, speaking or breathing difficulties or other problems affecting the larynx. The larynx is located in the front of the neck and helps us breathe, swallow and speak as it controls the opening and closing of the windpipe. The larynx is also where the vocal cords are found. Microscopic voice surgery may be determined to be the best course of treatment after diagnostic testing and examinations have discovered the source of a persistent cough, hoarseness or various voice problems.
This procedure is commonly used to treat conditions such as lesions, cysts, benign tumors and granulomas by removing the abnormal growths on the larynx. These are typically noncancerous growths that may develop in the area of the vocal folds as a result of persistent irritation or trauma. They can have a wide variety of causes, including vocal overuse, coughing, acid reflux and more.
