In 2012, I treated more patients with endoscopic sinus surgery than I ever have before. I believe that people are becoming aware that there is something they can do about their chronic sinusitis, and once all other treatment options have been exhausted.

Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) December 22, 2012

With 2012 coming to a close, Babak Larian, MD, FACS, announces the top five surgical procedures performed at the CENTER for Advanced Head & Neck Surgery in Los Angeles, and makes his predictions for how the list may differ in 2013. According to Dr. Larian, targeted endoscopic sinus surgery, also known as TESS surgery, brought in more patients than previous years.

“In 2012, I treated more patients with endoscopic sinus surgery than I ever have before. I believe that people are becoming aware that there is something they can do about their chronic sinusitis, and once all other treatment options have been exhausted, TESS surgery can provide absolutely amazing and life changing results,” said Dr. Larian.

Other procedures topping off the top five list of 2012 include 2.) Minimally Invasive Thyroidectomy, 3.) Minimally Invasive Parathyroid Surgery, 4.) MicroParotidectomy, and 5.) Treatment for Nasal Polyps. A common theme between all top five procedures performed in 2012 lies in their minimally invasive treatment methods, which allows patients to recover more quickly while also doing much less tissue damage than the procedures surgical counterpart.

“It’s quite interesting that all top five procedures performed at the CENTER in 2012 were minimally invasive surgeries,” said Dr. Larian. “This is the future of medicine: bringing excellent care to patients in the quickest, safest, and best way possible. I believe that continuing research to pioneer new minimally invasive methods for my patients will only increase surgical success.”

When asked to discuss his thoughts for what 2013 may bring in comparison to 2012, Babak Larian, MD, FACS, had this to say.

“I believe that more people are going to seek treatment for problems they’re experiencing in 2013. At the CENTER, I work with patients going through issues relating to the thyroid, parathyroid, and other head and neck disorders which don’t always bring symptoms that are easily distinguishable. People are becoming better at listening to their bodies and understanding when something is wrong, which will result in an earlier treatment plan and greater overall success,” said Dr. Larian.
