What is Endoscopic Sinus Surgery?
An endoscope is a small, thin, lighted instrument that allows a sinus surgeon to peer inside your nasal cavities and identify blockages and other issues where they occur. As a Los Angeles sinus specialist, I often rely upon the endoscope because it is a safe medical instrument that allows me to perform a wide variety of procedures without undue distress, scarring, or discomfort.
Besides being a terrific tool for visualizing problems, the endoscope can also be outfitted with microscopic instruments. These medical tools allow your sinus surgeon to perform precision surgery wherever the need arises – to remove polyps, say, or to correct a deviated septum. There is no need to open a larger cavity or perform more broad-ranging procedures – the endoscope is as specific as it is contained. The result is faster healing time, and a more targeted approach to surgical correction.
