Nasal surgery

Surgical procedures to resolve respiratory disorders, turbinate hypertrophy, sinusitis, rhinitis, nasal polyps, and rhinogenic headaches.


Dr. Pin, in his Pordenone office and in the Pordenone, San Vito al Tagliamento and Trieste operating offices, offers specialist services in nasal otolaryngology, aimed at solving problems such as:
• Respiratory disorders
• Turbinate hypertrophy
• Sinusitis
• Rhinitis
• Nasal polyps
• Rhinogenic headaches


Septoplasty is the most commonly performed operation to restore the correct patency and functionality of the nose.
The procedure, unlike rhinoseptoplasty, does not change the aesthetic appearance of the nose, and allows, through an exclusive endonasal approach, to correct a deviation of the septum, the result of an incorrect growth of the facial skeleton or of a trauma.

The operation, performed under general anesthesia, lasts about 30 minutes. At the end of it, small sponge pads will be inserted into the nose to avoid bleeding or bruising, which will then be removed after 48-72 hours.

Turbinate Surgery

An excessive development of the turbinates, in association with a deviation of the septum, or due to an allergy, can determine a significant obstacle to nasal breathing, snoring or favor recurrent infections.
After a thorough examination and an endoscopic evaluation, the most correct solution will be offered.
Corrective surgery, when indicated, can be performed with different techniques, possibly endoscopic or under local anesthesia (for example with radiofrequencies).

Treatment of turbinate hypertrophy with radiofrequency

An innovative technique that allows a reduction in the volume of the turbinates with reduced thermal damage compared to the traditional diathermy coagulation.
The surgical procedure can be performed under local anesthesia and it will be possible to leave the hospital immediately afterwards.

Endoscopic treatment of sinusitis

Sinusitis is an infection of the paranasal sinuses, characterized as known, by the feeling of a nasal obstruction, persistent nasal discharge, pain in the face or eyes and, if neglected, can also lead to important complications, such as abscesses of the orbit or brain.
Sometimes it can be favored by the presence of nasal polyps.

Functional endoscopic surgery of the paranasal sinuses is an operation that allows, without external scars, to clean the paranasal sinuses from the infection and to eliminate those local conditions predisposing to possible recurrences.

The procedure, performed under general anesthesia, lasts about 30-90 minutes. At the end of the procedure, small sponge pads will be inserted into the nose to avoid bleeding or bruising, which will then be removed after 48-72 hours.

Endoscopic treatment of nasal polyps

Nasal polyps can be caused by infections or may be of an allergic origin.
When they become large enough to cause a nasal obstruction or are the cause of recurrent sinusitis, and do not respond to medical therapy, an endoscopic surgical treatment can be performed.
The surgery will be performed under general anesthesia; the duration of the procedure varies and is in relation to the entity of the nasal polyposis.
In some selected cases the surgery can also be performed under local anesthesia. The small pads inserted into the nose at the end of the operation will be removed after 24-72 hours.
