Image-guided surgery allows our surgeons to perform complex procedures with the aid of small, rigid telescopes endoscopes and cameras connected to high definition monitors, to magnify and illuminate the nasal and sinus tissue. This allows our surgeons to precisely see where any given structure is within the nose.
Using your preoperative computerized tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan, image-guided surgery works like a GPS system. Your CT or MRI scan is loaded into the image-guided device, and all instruments are adjusted so the position of the tip of the instrument can be seen on the image-guided scan on a separate monitor.
