Endoscopic Sinus Surgery

Endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS) is a procedure to open the sinus to relieve pressure and infection. There are a number of different approaches to sinus surgery. ESS involves the insertion of the endoscope, a very thin fiber-optic tube, into the nose for a direct visual examination of the openings into the sinuses. With advanced micro-telescopes and instruments, abnormal and obstructive tissues are then removed. In the majority of cases, the surgical procedure is performed entirely through the nostrils, leaving no external scars. There is usually minimal swelling and only mild discomfort.
