Endoscopic Sinus Surgery



Endoscopic sinus surgery is an minimally invasive outpatient procedure performed while the patient is asleep under general anesthesia which is done to remove nasal polyps and tumors, treat chronic sinus infections, and address other types of sinus problems.

How is Endoscopic Sinus Surgery performed?

In order to magnify and see the sinus tissues, the surgeon inserts an endoscope—a narrow camera rod with a light at the end—into one nostril. After identifying the issue, the surgeon carefully removes the reasons for sinus obstruction, such as swollen mucous membranes, nasal polyps, and scar tissue, using specialized equipment in addition to the endoscope. 


Specialized tools can straighten the septum and shrink the size of the turbinates, which are bony structures inside the sinuses, if a deviated septum causes breathing issues.

Patient Recovery & Outlook

Minor bleeding, pain, congestion, discharge and fatigue are common after the surgery, but should go away in one to three weeks. After the procedure, you will require follow-up visits with your doctor a few times in order to help the healing process.

Your nose and sinuses will be cleared of any fluid or blood left over after the operation by the medical staff during these appointments.
