  • Expected results of the proposed surgical procedure
  • Likelihood that the surgical expectations will be reached
  • Likelihood of complications from surgery
  • Expected r ecovery time
  • The success of non surgical treatments
  • The cost of long term non surgical treatment versus surgical treatment
The topics on the right can help you understand the role of surgery in treatment of sinus and nasal problems.
