Professor Winter is aware that the most important question patients want to know is will they be better if they undergo septal and sinus surgery?
Professor Winter is very carful to advise patients if surgery should be undertaken and if it is undertaken the extent of surgery.
Professor Winter aims to advise on the best operation to get the best results. He routinely collects data pre and post op using the Sino-Nasal Outcome Test questionnaire (SNOT-22). This is a validated self-reported outcome score for improvements in nasal symptoms.
The results show that following surgery by Professor Winter there is a significant improvement in nasal symptoms. Professor Winter will advise some patients on the need to continue with sprays after.
