Minimally invasive surgery refers to surgical procedures that use advanced tools and techniques that minimize the size of the incisions needed to perform the procedure. These procedures generally lead to less pain, less scarring, and less risk, as well as a faster recovery.
Kamran Jafri, MD PC, is highly experienced and trained in minimally invasive techniques and procedures and uses these techniques to diagnose and treat many ear, nose, and throat conditions.
Some of the most common minimally invasive procedures include:
Sinus surgery is recommended as a treatment for sinusitis. The procedure may involve removing thickened bones, polyps, scar tissue, or swollen nasal lining to repair the blockage.
Balloon sinuplasty is a minimally invasive procedure conducted at the office to help open blocked sinus passages so they can drain properly and prevent future infections and symptoms of sinusitis.
A septoplasty involves using a nasal endoscope to improve nasal blockage by correcting a deviated septum.
The turbinoplasty is a procedure that improves symptoms caused by nasal blockage and congestion. The procedure uses a nasal endoscope and a small shaver device to remove the swollen or enlarged tissue.
The nasal valve collapse repair is a relatively new procedure in which a device called the Latera® Implant System is used to place temporary implants under the skin of the nose above the nostrils. The device opens the nostrils to improve breathing.
Cryoablation is a minimally invasive procedure for the treatment of nasal congestion. A special device freezes the tissue in the back of your nose that contains the nerve endings responsible for congestion.
Kamran Jafri, MD PC, offers many of these procedures in-office under local anesthesia. However, in some cases, the procedures may need to be performed at the hospital.
Kamran Jafri, MD PC, determines if you’re a good candidate for minimally invasive surgery during a consultation. The practice takes a “less is more” approach to care and prefers the less invasive surgical methods. However, your previous surgical and medical history are taken into consideration and may play a role in determining if minimally invasive surgery makes the safest surgical option for you.
