Endoscopic Sinus Surgery

Endoscopic sinus surgery, also known as functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS), is a surgical procedure performed to treat chronic sinusitis and other conditions affecting the sinuses. It is a minimally invasive approach that utilizes an endoscope, a thin, flexible tube with a light and camera, to visualize and access the sinuses.

FESS stands for Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery. It is a minimally invasive surgical procedure performed to treat chronic sinusitis and other sinus-related conditions. The procedure involves using an endoscope, a thin tube with a camera, to visualize and remove obstructions in the sinuses.

FESS is performed to treat chronic sinusitis, nasal polyps, sinus infections, and other conditions that cause inflammation and blockages in the sinuses. It aims to improve sinus drainage, reduce inflammation, and relieve symptoms such as facial pain, congestion, and difficulty breathing.

FESS is typically performed under general anesthesia. The surgeon inserts an endoscope into the nasal cavity to visualize the sinuses. Surgical instruments are then used to remove nasal polyps, clear blockages, and enlarge the sinus openings, allowing for better drainage and improved airflow.

The procedure itself is performed under anesthesia, so you won't experience pain during surgery. However, it's common to experience some discomfort, swelling, and congestion in the days following the procedure. Your surgeon will prescribe pain medications and provide instructions on managing post-operative pain.

The recovery time can vary depending on the extent of the surgery and individual healing factors. Generally, patients can expect a recovery period of 1 to 2 weeks before returning to normal activities. It may take several weeks to fully recover and notice the full benefits of the surgery.

FESS is considered a safe procedure, but like any surgery, there are potential risks and complications. These can include bleeding, infection, scarring, damage to surrounding structures, and a rare chance of cerebrospinal fluid leak. Though rare, but if they do happen, these complications are easily manageable. Our ENT surgeon will discuss these risks with you prior to the procedure.

FESS can provide significant relief for many people with chronic sinusitis or nasal polyps. However, it may not guarantee a complete cure, as some underlying causes or factors may contribute to sinus issues. Our ENT specialist will evaluate your specific condition and provide appropriate recommendations.

FESS is a common and effective treatment for chronic sinusitis and nasal polyps, but there may be alternative treatments depending on the severity and underlying cause of your sinus issues. These can include medication management, nasal irrigation, and balloon sinuplasty. Your doctor will determine the best approach for your condition.
