Make an Appointment

  • Endoscopic sinus surgery is a surgery intended to open the natural drainage pathways of the sinuses in patients primarily suffering from acute or chronic sinusitis. This surgery helps in restoring the health and functionality of these pathways. Other reasons for this surgery can be nasal polyps, swollen tissues, or tumors.
  • It is a minimal invasive chronic sinus infection surgery effective in treating sinus blockages.

What are the Symptoms
of Chronic Sinusitis
??

In this condition, you suffer from persistent infection and inflammation in the lining of your sinuses. You may experience symptoms like:

Nasal congestion

Toothache,
headache

Sneezing

Facial pressure

Runny nose

Fatigue

Discoloured nasal discharge

Altered sense of smell

Fever

Why is Endoscopic Sinus Surgery Conducted?

With the help of endoscopic sinus surgery, a sinus specialist clears the delicate bone and mucous membranes, which obstruct the drainage pathways.

When Should You Seek Medical Treatment?

Most patients get relief from the symptoms of chronic sinusitis through medications. However, some patients may reach a stage where medicines fail to provide the necessary respite, and the symptoms aggravate.

A sinus surgery doctor recommends this surgery to:

  • Improve the symptoms related to sinusitis
  • Lessen the frequency of sinus infections
  • Alleviate the severity of the condition
  • Improve airflow through the nose

What are the Ways to
Diagnose Infected Sinuses?

To diagnose sinus infections, a sinus specialist first examines the inside of your nose with a flashlight and speculum.

Your doctor may advise some lab tests:

  • Evaluation of the nasal drainage by collecting a sample via swab
  • Allergy testing, especially if you have recurring sinus infections or chronic sinusitis
  • Blood tests including CBC, C-reactive protein, erythrocyte sedimentation rate

In some cases, the doctor may also choose X-ray and CT (computed tomography) scans.

How is Endoscopic Sinus Surgery Performed?

In a chronic sinus infection surgery, the surgeons:

1

Can choose either general or local anaesthesia

2

Pass an endoscope (thin fibre-optic tube with a camera attached) through your nose to access sinus cavities

3

Then, insert other surgical instruments and micro telescopes

4

Use these tools to remove the damaged tissues, bones, or polyps and clear the blockages

5

Take out the surgical tools and put dissolvable nasal packing to complete the procedure

There is not much visible scarring, and the recovery is fast too. Further, endoscopic sinus surgery cost is comparatively reasonable.

What Out Patients Are Saying

I was suffering from blocked sinuses, which was causing breathing trouble. There was a lot of sinus pressure, and the headaches made me feel miserable. Getting an endoscopic sinus surgery at Sri Ramakrishna Hospital turned out to be the best decision for me. The sinus surgery doctor ensured that my treatment and recovery were smooth. I had pain only on the first day, and the antibiotics took care of the post-surgery infection. Also, I found the sinus operation cost reasonable here.

I cannot thank the sinus specialist at Sri Ramakrishna Hospital enough for the successful infected sinus treatment. My sinus headaches were far worse than the post-surgery discomfort. It is 7-weeks now, my sinuses are clear, there is no stuffiness or pain, and I am back to work. I was a bit apprehensive about the cost, but the endoscopic sinus surgery cost is affordable at this hospital.
