The majority of contemporary ENT sinus surgeons use a technique in which small telescopes are placed in the nose for precise visualization of the sinus obstruction, removal of the diseased tissue, and opening the natural sinus drainage holes, with less trauma to the normal tissues, allowing quicker healing, less packing, and no facial incisions, as compared with traditional sinus surgery. Surgery is often ambulatory, pain is usually minimal, and most patients return to work in less than a week. Nasal cleaning and irrigation are done frequently for about the first month after surgery until the nasal lining is clean and well healed.
