About Endoscopic Sinus Surgery
At Saman ENT & Facial Plastic Surgery, double board-certified otolaryngologist & head and neck surgeon Dr. Masoud Saman performs endoscopic sinus surgery for his patients experiencing chronic sinusitis or other sinus conditions requiring surgery. If you are not a candidate for balloon sinuplasaty, endoscopic sinus surgery requiring general anesthesia is used to address structural issues involving the sinuses. This procedure is often combined with septoplasty in patients with nasal septal deviation (deviated septum.)
Allergies and chronic sinus problems can lead to frequent use of antibiotics, chronic headaches, nasal stuffiness and drainage.Usually a CT scan is needed to assess the drainage of the sinuses. Sometimes medical therapy such as nasal sprays and steroids can help resolve the problem. Other times surgery may be needed. In mild and moderate cases we prefer using the balloon system to restore sinus drainage. Dr. Masoud Saman offers the most cutting edge technology and highly advanced techniques to perform the most optimal sinus procedures for patients in all regions of DFW area including Plano, Frisco, Dallas, Richardson, McKinney, Allen, and more.

"I came for a consult and was put on the schedule for surgery the same day (for roughly a month later). The girls in the office are fantastic and efficient and great with follow up calls and scheduling, etc. Dr. Kelling is lovely and we talked extensively about my history and concerns about my procedure (no fancy stuff, just airflow issues). As for my procedure (septoplasty and much needed turbinate reduction), I am overwhelmingly overjoyed at being able to breathe freely agai...n. I wake up in the morning feeling refreshed and alert and I ask myself if I even need a cup of coffee. I’m no longer a slave to caffeine in the morning, I just drink it because I enjoy it. I can now smell colors! Ok, maybe not colors, but I am moved to tears at least once a day at all the things I can smell and taste again after nearly a decade of deficient airflow. My only regret is I did not find Dr. Saman sooner. Though I did not take advantage of his artistic talent in rhinoplasty (though I would have totally gone for it five years ago), I felt like it was best to overshoot rather than undershoot when it comes to a surgeon’s skill. He is very transparent about his procedures and techniques on social media, I found him on Snapchat and followed on Instragram as well and I have to say it didn’t take long for me to feel comfortable and confident he could help me. Thank you Dr. Saman! You have helped me heal in more ways than I can express."- J.A. / Facebook / Jul 10, 2018

Our Surgical Approach
Endoscopic sinus surgery is a fairly short surgery, usually taking under an hour. It may be performed under general anesthesia. Dr. Saman will use an endoscope that is entered through the nose and the surgical instruments will then be utilized. There are no incisions on the face. Then Dr. Saman will address the structural issues within the sinuses that are the cause of your problem. Polyps may also be extracted and in some instances, laser technology is used to shrink swollen nasal tissues.
What to expect
You may feel a little sore after the surgery, but most patients can return home the same day. We will be sure you have all the products, like a nasal spray and a prescription antibiotic, to heal successfully and comfortably at home. Patients should avoid blowing their nose or participating in strenuous exercise for a few days following the procedure. A follow-up appointment with Dr. Saman will need to be scheduled so that he can document your progress, clear out any crusting inside the nose, and adjust your treatment plan as needed.
