Fusion

One tool utilized for sinus surgery is a device known as the Fusion ENT Navigation System.  The devise provides for an image-guided surgery, giving the surgeon extra information about each patient’s unique anatomy.  It enables greater precision with less invasive endoscopic sinus surgery. 

Any time there is distorted anatomy either from natural development, previous surgery or trauma the navigation system can prove to be helpful.
