What Is Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery

ENT surgeons conduct minimally invasive techniques for functional endoscopic sinus surgery to restore sinus ventilation and normal function. Patients with recurrent or chronic infective sinusitis may undergo this surgical procedure. Endoscopes are utilized in this surgical procedure. The endoscope or telescope is inserted through the nose. It is used for the better identification of the underlying diseases, utilizing endoscope allows the surgeon to precisely examine with minimal damage to surrounding tissues. Sinuses can be viewed more clearly through FESS and obstructing tissue can be easily and efficiently removed through this process. There are various advantages of this technique and ENT surgeons rely on this procedure for better results.

FESS beneficial in the case of:

  • Less tissue removal
  • more rapid tissue healing
