A miracle Sinus Surgery

A miracle Sinus Surgery

“Dr Setzen performed amazing sinus surgery on me and my outcome is nothing short of a miracle! I had rare bony osteomas(bone in the sinus)filling much of my left sinus cavities reaching up and close to my eye socket and brain. Other doctors with less confidence and experience would have done a procedure where they make an incision at my hairline and go in from above. That procedure would have been extremely traumatic both physically and emotionally for me. Dr. Setzen, after consulting with many other experts around the world, was willing to first try going up through my left nostril to scrape away at the bone from below. Well needless to say, after a 3 1/2 hour procedure, where he patiently chipped away, tiny bony piece by tiny bony piece, he was able to remove all of the tumor. Luckily the tumor was benign and I am living (and breathing)with my sinus free and clear. After a year there is no sign of bone blockage, nor do I or Dr. Setzen expect it will return. I cannot recommend Dr. Setzen and his staff more highly. They were always warm and caring during an EXTREMELY traumatic time for me. I ALWAYS felt that I was under the care of the most highly skilled physician. If you are looking for an expert in this field with a warm, caring manner, you MUST see Dr. Michael Setzen. How Dr. Setzen treated and cured my rare case with a minimally invasive surgery when it could have been so much more traumatic, is nothing short of a miracle!!”
