Informational Videos


Video Descriptions
Septoplasty This video illustrates the endoscopic procedure to resect the part of the septum deviated. This surgery is indicated for patients with nasal obstruction secondary to septal deviation. The deviated septum can be consequence of a trauma/broken nose or individual growth pattern of bone and cartilage.
Inferior Turbinoplasty This video illustrates the endoscopic procedure to reduce the size of an enlarged inferior turbinate. This procedure is designed for patients with chronic nasal obstruction/congestion refractory to medical treatment. A microdebrider (shaver) is used to decrease the size of the turbinate.
Maxillary Sinus This video illustrates the endoscopic procedure to open the maxillary sinus in case of chronic sinusitis or refractory acute sinusitis.
Cranial Base Surgery This video demonstrates a patient with severe nasal polyposis and several previous surgeries. A nasal endoscopy shows early postop (1 week) after resection of polyps, revision of the functional endoscopic sinus surgery and Draf III frontal sinusotomy.
Research Video - 1 This video demonstrates the dissection of the right pterygopalatine fossa to demonstrate the arteries and nerves within the region. The pterygopalatine fossa is a tiny pyramidal shape area just behind the maxillary sinus.
Research Video - 2 This video demonstrates the dissection of the anterior cranial base. It is demonstrated in this video the steps to perform the resection of the anterior cranial base through endocopic endonasal approach
Research Video - 3

This video demonstrates the dissection of Draf III frontal sinusotomy. This procedure involves the resection of the superior anterior part of the nasal septum and the floor of the frontal sinus. Both fontal sinuses are joined together to form one large cavity.
