Endoscopic Sinus Surgery

Endoscopic Sinus Surgery at Woodthorpe Hospital

What is endoscopic sinus surgery?

Endoscopic sinus surgery is a group of several small operations on your sinuses (small hollow spaces in the bones around the nose that produce mucus). It is often performed to treat sinusitis (inflammation of your nose sinuses) and nasal polyps (soft and noncancerous growths on the lining of your nose or sinuses).

The goals of this surgery are:

  • To reduce the frequency and severity of sinus infections
  • To improve symptoms of sinusitis
  • To improve airflow through your nose
  • To improve your sense of smell and taste.

ESS inserts an illuminated and thin fibre-optic tube called an endoscope into your nose to see inside it. Highly specialised instruments are then used to perform the surgery. It requires no cuts or stitches to your face.
