Comprehensive Sinus Surgery
Solutions
For Your Office

The Precision of the Operating Room, Now in Your Office

Office-based procedures can be more convenient for both patients and surgeons. 

Patients benefit from shorter waiting times before the procedures as well as shorter recovery times. Most patients can leave the office after being observed for 10-20 minutes after completion of the procedure. Shorter recovery times can be attributed to the reduced likelihood of postoperative nausea and vomiting because of the avoidance of sedatives and general anesthetics. For surgeons, incorporating procedures into their office schedule allows them to save the time associated with operating room turnover and anesthesia time.1

Sinus surgery is changing. 

Basic sinus procedures are increasingly performed in the office.  Medtronic is the leader in providing innovative and comprehensive ENT solutions for the office.  We provide cutting-edge therapies2 and technologies that deliver clinical and economic value for you and your patients.3  Transform your office by:​

  • Bringing OR technology to your office procedure rooms​
  • Providing additional navigated treatment options​
  • Working with our teams to increase your comfort level with in-office therapies and procedures
  • Providing in-office and digital patient education content to use in your practice​
