How is Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery Performed?

  • The procedure is usually painless and it is not an unpleasant experience. Firstly general anesthesia is given for the majority of sinus surgery procedures (If local anesthesia with intravenous sedation is an option, your surgeon will discuss this with you).

  • Once the anesthesia has been administered the procedure will be started. The surgeon will carry out the procedure as planned in the office. Intraoperative findings, of course, may need changes to the surgical plan so that the treatment can be finished with the best possible outcome.

  • Traditional nasal packing is rarely required at the conclusion of the operation. In certain cases, resorbable material is inserted in the sinuses to assist control bleeding and act as a dressing, whereas in others, no material is placed in the sinuses at all.

  • It may be necessary to reconstruct the nasal septum during sinus surgery in some circumstances. Surgical reduction of the inferior turbinates is also a possibility. If your surgeon believes it is essential, septal surgery and a turbinate reduction will be discussed with you prior to surgery.
