Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery: Procedure, Benefits, Recovery And Cost

Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery (FESS) is considered as of the most common surgical methods. It is done to treat chronic sinus infections. FESS procedure is performed using a magnifying endoscope to see and remove the tissues and bone that are affected. In the previous procedures, that were done before FESS was introduced, the doctors used to directly make a cut right in front of the face to check the problem. In those cases, the chances of multiple infections were open. But now it utilizes glass “telescopes” covered in stainless steel which provides illumination in the nose and sinus pathways. These tools are specifically designed to be used only for the purpose of FESS. FESS is a precise, less complicated way to open the sinuses and treat them.

The main purpose of this surgery is to clean and cure out infected material, open blocked passages, and restore healthy tissue so our nose is able to function normally.

Doctors recommend FESS surgery is to the patients who don’t find relief from chronic conditions such as sinusitis after trying all the methods. FESS is the best solution if someone is suffering from these conditions:

  • Nasal polyps
  • 4+ episodes of acute sinusitis yearly
  • Chronic sinusitis that lasts for three months or more
  • Chronic sinusitis that is not cured by antibiotics
  • Enlarged nasal glands
