What Is Endoscopic Sinus Surgery?
Endoscopic surgery may be a solution when medicine has failed to improve chronic sinusitis. It is the preferred method of surgery for most cases of chronic sinusitis that must involve surgery. Surgery may unblock the sinuses when medical therapy is not effective or if there are other complications, such as bone abnormalities or fungal sinusitis. It’s always advised to schedule a consultation with an ENT to decide upon the best course of treatment for your unique circumstance.
Our fully trained and specialized doctors have used endoscopic sinus surgery to treat all of the following, including but not limited to:
- Patients who have tried and failed extensive medical therapy
- Those with chronic sinusitis
- Nasal or sinus tumors
- Nasal polyps or sinus polyps
- Patients with evidence of bone obstruction
In endoscopic sinus surgery, also known as minimally invasive sinus surgery, a long, thin tube known as an endoscope is carefully inserted into the nose, allowing magnified visibility of the sinuses. Safe, minimally invasive surgical devices are inserted alongside the endoscope. This allows the surgeon to safely remove bone tissue or polyps blocking the sinus openings and remove growths (polyps) of the mucous membrane without causing any damage to the surrounding area. In some cases lasers are used to remove tissue blocking the sinus opening. At times, a fine rotating burr may be necessary to scrape away obstructing tissue.
Endoscopic sinus surgery can help:
- Remove nasal blockages, like nasal polyps or tumors
- Improve overall breathing
- Relieve sinusitis symptoms
- Improve sinus drainage
