In brief: Yes and no
If you have both deviated septum and sinus problems then you will need endoscopic surgery.
Deviated septum repair is a more conventional surgery, and it depends on the severity of the deviated septum. If you have sinus problems, be sure your ENT has gotten a ct scan to evaluate your sinuses so that you avoid two invasive procedures.

In brief: Not really
A deviated septum can be fixed during the course of endoscopic sinus surgery (ess) or on its own.
It's usually fixed through a small incision in the nose for patients with nasal obstruction.
