In brief: Usually with scopes
During endoscopic sinus surgery your surgeon will use an endoscope an identify the blocked or diseased sinus openings and then will widen those openings with various instruments or balloons.
Then the actual sinuses will be irrigated to remove debris. For more detailed info visit www.Socalsinus.Com.

In brief: Sinus surgery
Using a small telescope with a camera the surgeon can look in your nose.
Using delicate instruments the doc opens the various sinus cavities to improve drainage.
