Conventional Sinus Surgery
Endoscopic Sinus Surgery (ESS)
The goals of sinus surgery are to clear blocked sinuses restoring normal sinus drainage and to preserve normal anatomy and mucosal tissue. Conventional sinus surgery is called Endoscopic Sinus Surgery (ESS).
With ESS, rigid, steel instruments are placed into the nose along with an endoscope to help the surgeon see inside the nose and nasal cavities. The procedure works by cutting to remove bone and tissue to enlarge the sinus opening.
