Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery Results
Functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS) is a surgical procedure used by ear, nose and throat (ENT) surgeons in some chronic sinusitis patients to improve sinus drainage by enlarging the drainage pathways.
This is most often achieved through the surgical removal of nasal structures and expansion of sinus ostia, the natural openings of the sinus. While FESS involves the removal of some existing structures in the nasal passageways, ENT surgeons work to preserve the lining of the sinus, called mucosa, because it plays an important role in drainage.

A turbinate reduction can also be performed in the office with sinuplasty san antonio or with traditional FESS in the operating room.
