FESS - Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery

Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery (FESS) is a medical procedure for treating a recurring sinus infection (chronic sinusitis) or nasal polyposis. The procedure is conducted with the patient put under general anesthesia.

An endoscope is a small rod-like instrument which is 4 millimeters or less in diameter and has a light at its end. A range of lenses are used to get a clear view of all the corners around the nose. A powerful fibrotic light is used to get clarity on the nasal close-ups. Once the area is investigated properly, specially designed instruments, powered with suction debrides are used to enlarge the sinus openings and anything that blocks the sinuses, such as swollen mucosa or polyps, are cautiously removed. At times, other surgical procedures like septoplasty and turbinate reduction are performed along with Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery.
