This is performed for chronic rhinosinusitis, which can cause nasal discharge, nasal blockage, reduced sense of smell and occasionally facial pain. It is diagnosed by using a flexible camera to inspect the nose and sinuses. The first line of treatment is medical, which involves a combination of antibiotics and nasal steroids. If this doesn’t resolve the symptoms, surgery is required to widen the drainage channels of the sinuses, a procedure called Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery (FESS). This is performed using an endoscope inside the nose so there are no incisions on the outside. A CT scan is required before the surgery to show the extent of the disease.
What to expect
Your appointment will take place in a comfortable setting at either hospital. A detailed history of your symptoms will be taken and a thorough examination, which may include a flexible scope examination or examination under the microscope.
Depending on the nature of your condition, an appropriate management plan will be developed with your wishes being at the centre of it.
