EXPERIENCE WITH SINUS SURGERY
What is Dr. Khetarpal’s experience with sinus surgery?
Dr Khetarpal has over 20 years experience with complex endoscopic and open sinus and skull base surgery. He has operated on very complex sinus polyps, skull base tumors or allergic fungal sinusitis and many revision cases requiring drilling within the sinuses or even open sinus surgery. He is very comfortable with revision sinus surgery.
He has performed sinus surgery in very young children from the age of 2 years to that of adults up to the age of 91 years and is therefore skilled in operating on very tiny spaces, including those of children. He has extensive experience in both pediatric and adult in office balloon sinuplasty for over 7 years.
More recently, Dr Khetarpal has presented five papers of his clinical research on Recurrent Acute Rhinosinusitis at the International Meeting of Rhinology in June 2019. His research shows that balloon sinuplasty is effective in recurrent acute rhinosinusitis and that more extensive surgery may be appropriate in this condition as well.
