Endoscopic Sinus Surgery

Endoscopic Sinus Surgery

Functional endoscopic sinus surgery has been proven to dramatically improve the quality of life of patients who suffer from conditions such as:

• Sinusitis
• Nasal polyps
• Bacterial, fungal, and other serious and recurrent sinus issues

The procedure typically takes place under a general anesthetic. From here, a doctor uses an endoscope to assess the blockage of your sinuses. Once the problem is rooted out, the offensive tissue or abnormal bone is removed, providing a permanent solution to the obstructed cavity. For patients who suffer from recurrent sinus pressure, uncomfortable drainage and other symptoms, this treatment provides the solution to a lifetime of congestion symptoms and drainage issues. Recovery times for this OR treatment vary, but most patients are able to resume normal activities no more than two weeks following their procedure.

Most insurance companies, including Medicare, offer coverage for the functional endoscopic sinus surgery treatment.
