Endoscopic Sinus Surgeon

Sinus Surgery Expert Los AngelesWhat is Endoscopic Sinus Surgery?

Functional endoscopic sinus surgery, or FESS, is a surgical procedure used to remove blockages in the sinuses. A thin camera with a light on the end called an Endoscope, will be used to magnify and see inside the sinuses. Specialized instruments will then be used to remove any sinus blockages such as nasal polyps or scar tissue. Straightening the septum and reducing the size of the turbinates may also be done, if needed. FESS is performed completely through the nostrils and does not involve cutting the skin. If Dr. Bublik, decides that you are a candidate for this procedure, he will discuss with you his recommendations, along with the associated risks.

Are there other options?

Additionally, there is a procedure that utilizes balloons to widen the sinus openings. This minimally invasive procedure, as with FESS, is done entirely through the nostrils, and in most cases can greatly shorten the recovery period.
