Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery

What is Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery (ESS)?

ESS is a minimally invasive surgical procedure used to remove sinus blockage and establish wide sinus drainage pathways.  It is performed entirely through the nostrils.  This procedure is typically reserved for patients who have severe sinus disease that cannot be controlled with medications or less invasive techniques. 

While Dr. Elangovan recommends this procedure for recurring and chronic sinusitis, patients may also find ESS relieves one or more of the following symptoms:

Why ESS?

  • Failure of medical treatment with frequent antibiotics and steroids
  • For treatment of recurrent or chronic sinusitis that failed less invasive techniques
  • Nasal polyps
