FESS is a minimally invasive surgical technique that uses endoscopic tools to treat complicated acute or chronic sinus infections.

The goal of FESS is to provide wide-open air ventilation throughout the sinuses and enhance sinus drainage. The sinus lining is preserved, not stripped. This will enable restoration of healthy sinus linings.

Benefits of FESS

  • Less invasive (no incision, surgery performed through the nostril)
  • Less bleeding and pain
  • Shorter recovery time

What to Expect

Your nose will feel congested for 7-10 days. For some, antibiotics are necessary; the sinus cavities should be fully healed in 3-4 weeks.
