Diagnosis and Recovery Following FESS Surgery
What is FESS Surgery
During FESS, a physician employs slender nasal endoscopes equipped with lights and lenses to alleviate sinus-related symptoms without making incisions in or around the nasal area. This surgery can be conducted on an outpatient basis, either under general or local anesthesia. It’s also referred to as endoscopic sinus surgery. The risk of complications associated with FESS is lower compared to traditional sinus surgery.
FESS surgery is an excellent choice if conventional medications and antibiotic treatments haven’t provided relief for chronic sinusitis. Additionally, it’s recommended for conditions such as enlarged nasal turbinates, persistent sinusitis for over three months, and a deviated nasal septum.
