Endoscopic Sinus Surgery
Chronic Sinusitis Treatment
Also called functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS), this minimally invasive procedure can quickly and easily remove blockages and open drainage of the sinus cavities. There is little tissue damage and no visible scarring of the area, as opposed to traditional open surgery.
The procedure utilizes an endoscope: a thin, flexible "telescope" with lighting and a camera that allows your surgeon to identify and correct any anatomical causes of obstruction in the nasal passageways. If needed, other instruments are inserted through the endoscope to treat problems on the spot.
FESS is a diagnostic and therapeutic method that is often selected by our ENT patients for help preventing and alleviating symptoms associated with chronic sinusitis, as well as other conditions that cause blocked sinus passageways.
