Sinusitis, or sinus inflammation, is diagnosed in more than 30 million people in the United States each year. It can be as annoying as it is common. Endoscopic sinus surgery is among the treatment options if the inflammation becomes chronic, or long-lasting. Because the procedure is minimally invasive, the surgery causes no discernible change to the look of a patient’s face or nose.
Yale Medicine patients who undergo the procedure, and then manage their conditions with ongoing medication, typically enjoy a reduction in the severity and frequency of their sinus infections.
