What is a sinus surgery?
Have you heard about sinus surgery? It has evolved ever since the days when external incisions were performed; the incisions involved surgical cuts in the mouth with extensive nasal packing which required a gauze to control bleeding.
Advances in technology have led to sinus surgery being performed through the nose without any form of mouth or face incisions. Nowadays, a nasal endoscope is used to perform the treatment.
This device is placed into the nostril; it has several advantages that make it an ideal treatment device. The nasal endoscope has a special video camera. This allows the surgeon to observe the inside of the nasal cavity to know what is going on.
