This outpatient sinus surgery does not require any incisions to the face, yet efficiently and effectively targets diseased areas within the nose and sinuses.

Candidates for Minimally Invasive Image-Guided Endoscopic Sinus Surgery in Southern California are those who suffer from chronic and recurrent sinus infections (sinusitis), chronic sinus pain or pressure, or patients with extensive nasal obstruction due to a severely deviated septum, extensive nasal polyps or other issues.

During this minimally invasive outpatient sinus surgery, Los Angeles’ best sinus surgeon, Dr. Alen Cohen will employ the use of an endoscope which is a tiny camera that enables him to see within the nose and nasal passages. Working from images provided by the endoscope and by confirming diseased areas on the image guidance computer, Dr. Cohen uses microsurgical tools to gently increase the size of the sinus passageways, remove any obstructions and abnormal tissue in order to reduce the likelihood of recurring inflammation and infection in the future.
