Types of surgery for sinus surgery

Functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS)
This is the most common surgery for sinus. During FESS, the ENT specialist removes or reconstructs the opening between the sinuses and nose. This surgery produces better drainage, reduces the blockages of infected bacteria. In some cases, a septoplasty surgery can be performed at the same time to ensure nasal function and breathing.
Balloon sinuplasty
A balloon sinuplasty can be performed under local or general anesthesia. During the procedure, the ENT surgeon inserts a catheter into the sinus passage, then a slim and flexible balloon is inflated to expand the sinus opening. A saline solution will help flush out the built-up mucus and alleviate the pressure.
