Sinus Surgery (FESS)

An endoscopic sinus surgery is usually undertaken to bring relief from chronic rhinosinusitis (inflammation in nose and sinuses that’s unrelieved for at least 3 months) that’s not responding satisfactorily to medications. The cause of this inflammation can be anything from infection, allergies and irritants to polyps (non-cancerous swelling of the nasal/sinus lining). Endoscopic sinusitis surgery can be undertaken under local anaesthesia or general anaesthesia.

Another recent sinus treatment technique is to use ballooning to widen sinus openings. This can be done during the sinus surgery or as an in-office treatment depending on the patient and his/her condition.
