A long-term sinus infection is classified as one lasting more than 12 weeks. There can be a variety of causes, such as anatomical causes, lifestyle choices or unwelcome growths and infections.
Sinus surgery is usually recommended where other forms of treatment are ineffective or have failed in treating sinusitis and will help your nose and sinuses to function as they should.
There are a variety of procedures our ENT consultants may recommend depending on your individual circumstances.
Private Tonsillectomy in Bath
A tonsillectomy is a procedure to remove the tonsils, usually due to repeated episodes of infection.
As a key part of the body's defence mechanism, our experienced ENT surgeons will outline the procedure to ensure it's the right option for you.
Tonsillectomy is usually performed to remove the possibility of future infection, and the associated pain and fevers.
Private Thyroid Surgery in Bath
Depending on the disorder of the thyroid gland, our consultant ENT surgeons may recommend thyroid surgery.
This procedure usually tackles thyroid cancer, thyroid nodules and hyperthyroidism and will involve making an incision and pulling tissues aside to reveal the thyroid. The surgery will be discussed by the surgeon and can usually be classed as either a total thyroidectomy or a partial thyroidectomy.
Surgery is often used to address thyroid lumps, which can make it difficult for you to breathe or swallow and may also be unsightly in appearance.
Removing the lump via a thyroidectomy should determine the root cause of the lump, plus alleviate any symptoms.
Private Septoplasty in Bath
A septoplasty procedure involves correcting a deviated septum. The septum is a wall that splits the nose into two nostrils and can sometimes deviate when it moves to a single side of the nose, resulting in a nasal passage that is smaller than the other.
A deviated septum often occurs as result of an injury, but can also be present from birth. Symptoms can be varied but include nosebleeds, trouble breathing and pain.
After surgery, patients will find the nostrils work a lot more efficiently, allowing greater airflow.
Accessing private healthcare is easy, whether you choose to pay directly or use private medical insurance.
If you are paying for yourself, we can usually offer an upfront cost which you can then choose to pay in full or access one of our easy payment options.
If you have insurance, we can arrange direct settlement with your insurance provider, although you should check in advance to see if your treatment is covered. For more information, visit our private medical insurance page.
