Sinus Problems: Instant Improvement

Click for Video DESCRIPTION

At the Modern Nose Clinic, we offer patient testimonials to help patients to learn more about what it will be like having a sinus surgery awake in our clinic.

Dr. Skarada:

This is Dr. Douglas Skarada at the Modern Nose Clinic, and we have one of my patients here. She's got this gorgeous smile, and she's just been lovely. I've had a lot of fun with taking care of her. And it was nice because whenever a person says, "Dr. Skarada. I choose to trust you. My gift to you, Dr. Skarada, is I'm gonna trust you to do this awake surgery because I've heard all the horror stories out there, and I know about packing, two weeks of pain, lots of narcotics. You're telling me you can do it so delicately that we can do this awake in-clinic, so I choose to trust you." So how was the experience? Was it something pretty straightforward, or was it a challenge?

Patient:

It was very straightforward. It was amazing. I'd recommend it for anybody.

Dr. Skarada:

Do you have any – you know – the day of the surgery. Was it something – you had – you ate breakfast and lunch, right?

Patient:

I ate breakfast.

Dr. Skarada:

Yeah?

Patient:

You know. My surgery was at 10:00 a.m.

Dr. Skarada:

Do you have a friend or a family member watching?

Patient:

My husband watched.

Dr. Skarada:

Yeah. Did you think it was interesting or worthwhile?

Patient:

Yes.

Dr. Skarada:

Yeah. So other spouses might also appreciate – you know – coming to watch if they'd like, right? And was your recovery pretty straightforward?

Patient:

Yeah, it was simple.

Dr. Skarada:

Simple. And did we your surgery on a Friday? Or what day of the week? I can't remember.

Patient:

It was a Thursday.

Dr. Skarada:

Thursday? How many days was it before you felt like you could get back to kind of normal activities?

Patient:

Later that evening?

Dr. Skarada:

Wow. So that evening, you felt better. That's a big difference from traditional sinus surgery. Thank you very much for sharing that with us. Appreciate that. Any other remarks or comments, or is that pretty good?

Patient:

That's pretty good.

Dr. Skarada:

Alright! Well, thank you for sharing that. Do you mind if we share with any other patients?

Patient:

I don't mind at all.

Dr. Skarada:

Thank you.
