Sinus surgery is used to improve sinus function by removing diseased, damaged, or excess tissues from the sinus cavities. The surgery is usually for patients that have chronic inflammation of the sinuses that can interfere with fluid drainage. Removal of problematic tissue during this surgery improves drainage of fluid from the sinuses. The surgery is usually performed endoscopically, but can also be performed traditionally, and can be performed under local or general anesthesia. In endoscopic surgery, the doctor uses an endoscope to view the sinuses. He or she will then use surgical techniques to attempt to widen anatomical channels to allow fluids to drain from the sinuses. In some cases, balloons might be used to widen these channels.
