Abstract

The current health care climate has prompted a rise in certain procedures moving from the operating room to the office-based setting. Along with increased interest in office-based rhinologic procedures, there has been an expansion of devices, indications, and techniques. Many sinonasal conditions can now be safely and successfully treated in the clinic. Clinic procedures have potential advantages in comparison with surgery, such as faster scheduling, shorter procedure duration, quicker patient recovery, and reduced anesthetic morbidity. These advantages can translate to better satisfaction, cost, and time saving for both the patient and surgeon. This article seeks to review the office-based rhinology procedures, with a focus on those commonly performed in our practice.
