Advanced Endoscopic Sinus Surgery

Advanced endoscopic sinus surgery is a minimally invasive technique for treating structural abnormalities and blockages through the sinus cavities.

Using an endoscope (thin, flexible tube with a light and camera on the end), a surgeon can enter the sinus cavities through the nose to complete procedures using detailed image guidance and repair problems that are interfering with comfortable breathing.

The advantage of the procedure is that the surgery is less extensive, with minimal tissue loss, leaving no external scars. There is often little swelling and only mild discomfort.


Typically, endoscopic sinus surgery is deployed for patients with documented chronic rhinosinusitis based on a thorough history and a complete physical examination, including CT scans if appropriate, and after appropriate medical treatment has failed.

Beyond inflammatory and infectious sinus disease, other health scenarios warranting endoscopic sinus surgery include:


Dissolvable sinus implants are now available to promote recovery and long-term health outcomes after sinus surgery.  Your doctor can advise which is best for you based upon your symptoms and unique condition.
