are removed from these sinuses:
- Maxillary Sinuses, the sinuses in your cheeks
- Ethmoid Sinuses, the sinuses between your eyes
- Frontal Sinuses, the sinuses in your forehead

at the base of the skull.

aspirin and yellow dyes to decrease the chance of
polyps growing back.

outer layer(s) of the skin are removed and the skin
regrows, leaving a smoother surface.
Removal of Benign Moles,

of the palate and the uvula, sometimes in several
stages, to decrease the amount of "floppy"
tissue that vibrates as one snores
- removal of a portion of the palate and lateral pharyngeal
soft tissues to decrease the upper pharyngeal obstruction
in a person with sleep apnea.
of Zenker's Diverticulum - stapling and cutting
the wall between the Zenker's pouch and the esophagus
through the throat, with no outside incisions. See
www.laparoscopy.com for pictures of this procedure.
Removal of Salivary Glands
& Tumors - usually done for non-Cancerous
lumps. These surgeries often require identifying nerves

to these glands. Damage to any of these nerve branches
can result in weakness of part or all of one side
