What to Expect

During endoscopic sinus surgery, your ENT surgeon inserts a small telescope (nasal endoscope) through the nostril to view your nose and sinuses. The goal of the surgery is to identify the narrow channels that connect the sinuses to the nose, enlarge these narrow openings/channels, and improve drainage from the sinuses into the nose.

Sinusitis may affect some or all your sinuses. Your symptoms, examination in the physician’s office, and CT scan will determine which sinuses need to be opened.

Endoscopic sinus surgery may be done under local or general anesthesia. Sometimes your surgeon will also straight the nasal septum (divides the two sides of the nose) during surgery. The turbinates , which filter and moisten air inside of the nose, may require surgery as well.
