Specializes in ENT and Head and Neck Surgery

FESS: Hello, it depends on your history, ct findings, nasal endoscopic examination and what therapies have failed. You need to make sure the surgeon has good results with extensive experience. Be sure you are well informed and all your questions were addressed. In the right hands, it is a very successful surgery. Also discuss a possible balloon sinuplasty. That option may be as successful.
