Endoscopic sinus surgery is used for removing the polyps from the nose. This procedure is carried out using the general anaesthetic.
A camera is used by the surgeon to perform this operation. It is a tube with the video camera at the end that is inserted into the nostril so that the surgeon can see the polyps clearly.
After viewing the nose and the sinuses the surgeon will take the appropriate steps to remove nasal polyps.
Surgeons who perfor this surgery regularly can complete the full procedure in a short period of time.
You will be advised to take rest for the next few days or maybe a week. It all depends on the size of the polyps and how it has impacted you.
