Private Sinus Surgery in Droitwich
Sinus surgeries can help you breathe more easily and therefore enjoy a better quality of life. A common sinus surgical procedure is a private maxillary antroscopy, which helps clear the sinus opening. The main objective of any type of sinus surgery is to relieve a patient’s symptoms and reduce the number of infections they contract.
Many sinus related treatments are performed endoscopically, which enables the operation to be performed without the need for incisions which reduces scarring, as well as recovery time.
Private Tonsil Removal (Tonsillectomy) in Droitwich
A private tonsillectomy is the procedure name for tonsil removal in both adults and children. Patients who suffer regularly from tonsillitis may be considered a suitable candidate for this procedure. Tonsils contain white blood cells which in turn help to fight infection. However, when the tonsils become infected it can be extremely painful, and often more prone to infection which is why it might be recommended to remove them.
Private Thyroid Surgery in Droitwich
The thyroid gland creates two hormones in the body that regulate body temperature, metabolism and heart rate. A private thyroid surgery, otherwise known as a thyroidectomy, involves removing all or part of the thyroid.
After the operation has taken placed patients are given thyroxine (thyroid replacement medication) to replace the hormones that are no longer naturally produced by the body.
Private Septoplasty in Droitwich
The septum is the cartilage in the nose that separates the nostrils. Sometimes there are abnormalities in the septum resulting in one nostril being narrower than the other which can affect breathing. This is known as a deviated nasal septum and the procedure to correct this is known as a septoplasty. Airflow up the nose is usually vastly improved following a septoplasty and the patient can breathe more easily.
