At the Pediatric Sinus Center, Dr. McClay utilizes advanced technology like the electromagnetic (EM) image-guided sinus surgery system specially designed for pediatric ENT & Sinus surgical navigation, offering accuracy, convenience, and expandability. The computer software merges image data from multiple sources and presents patient data in real-time. The real-time positioning information allows navigation in and around the sinuses and away from critical structures during the removal of diseased tissue.
Pediatric Image-guided surgery has become an industry standard for many endoscopic sinus surgeries. The American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery (AAO-HNS) endorses the use of image-guided surgery for procedures including:
- Revision of pediatric sinus surgery
- Distorted pediatric sinus anatomy of development, postoperative, or traumatic origin
- Extensive pediatric sinonasal polyposis
- Pathology involving the frontal, posterior ethmoid, and sphenoid sinuses in children
- Disease abutting the skull base, orbit, optic nerve, or carotid artery
- CSF (cerebral spinal surgery) rhinorrhea or conditions where there is a skull base defect
- Benign and malignant sinonasal neoplasms in children
