Endoscopic Sinus Surgery
Endoscopic sinus surgery is performed in order to remove polyps or diseased tissue in the sinuses and to treat various sinus conditions. The endoscope has a lens that allows your surgeon to see a magnified view of your sinuses on a monitor throughout the procedure. In some instances, your surgeon may also use computed tomography (CT images) in conjunction with endoscopic images to gain an even better view of the field in which the procedure is being performed. This combination is especially useful for the removal of polyps or if your nasal cavity is distorted.
