The surgery involves opening a tiny opening in the ear and inserting a pair of tiny holes that allow the surgeon to insert a sinus probe.
Dr. Chris Tabor, director of the Ear, Nose and Throat Center at Mount Sinai Hospital, has had more than 150 patients with this surgery.
Tabor said the surgery is often done in conjunction with a combination of oral surgery and a root canal, which is why he is in favor of the surgery if the procedure is done in a safe environment.
I think that we should have this done in hospitals where it is safe, safe and safe,” Tabor said.
The procedure is also safer if done by a trained dentist who has experience with endoscopic surgery, but there is no evidence that dental assistants perform more of these surgeries than other doctors.
In addition to Tabor and the other surgeons in the hospital, the American College of Osteopathic Surgeons has also released a statement saying that the surgery should not be done in dental offices because of the risk of infection.
If you are interested in endoscopic sutures or cochleas, see a dentist.
The surgeon who performed the surgery has not been identified.
