Endoscopic Sinus Surgery

Understanding Endoscopic Sinus Surgery

Endoscopic sinus surgery is a minimally invasive procedure used to restore normal drainage and function of the sinuses. This technique involves the use of an endoscope – a thin, tube with a light and camera – allowing for a detailed view of the sinus passages. It is highly effective for treating sinusitis, nasal polyps, and other sinus-related conditions.

Indications for Endoscopic Sinus Surgery

  • Chronic Sinusitis: Persistent sinus infections not responding to medical treatment.
  • Nasal Polyps: Non-cancerous growths in the nasal passages or sinuses.
  • Sinus Obstructions: Blockages in the sinus pathways causing chronic infections and breathing difficulties.
  • Deviated Nasal Septum: Correction of septum to improve airflow and sinus function.
  • Nasal mass: Cancerous and Non Cancerous nasal mass can be effectively removed without and facial scar and facial deformities
