What is Endoscopic Sinus Surgery?
Endoscopic sinus surgery is used to increase the amount of air flowing through the sinuses and allow mucus to drain properly. The procedure can relieve nasal blockages, improve breathing, improve the sense of smell and taste and relieve facial pain. The endoscope, which utilizes fiberoptic technology, allows Dr. Snow to see inside the sinuses via the nostril, without incisions on the face, and makes it possible to see parts of the sinuses that were formerly difficult to reach.
