Sinusitis is one of the common diseases that are widespread in the majority of the population in India. According to the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases reported survey, one in eight Indians is suffering from a sinus infection. It is stated that 134 million Indians are affected with chronic sinusitis, which usually occurs because of poor air quality or infection present in the air. Most of the states in India have poor air quality like Delhi, Patna, Gwalior, Raipur, Ahmedabad, etc.
Sinusitis is an inflammation where swelling occurs on the tissue lining of the sinuses. This infection can lead to breathing abnormalities. Sinus infection or sinusitis is common and treatable. The doctor may recommend lab tests like CT scan, MRI, nasal discharge swab, or use endoscope to detect the root cause. After identifying the cause in the diagnosis, the patient will be advised of the best-suited advanced treatment.
Surgical Procedures to Cure Sinusitis
Below mentioned are the most effective and advanced surgical treatments. The procedures are performed with USFDA approved technology which has a higher success rate and better results.
Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery (FESS)
It is an advanced and evolved technique to cure sinus infections. This is a minimally invasive approach that is performed with the help of an endoscope. There is a thin, flexible tube that has a camera in the end with light. The doctor inserts the tube with the assistance of an endoscope that gives access to the affected sinus. FESS is usually a suitable and most effective treatment to restore the air cavities and improve the infected sinuses’ normal function.
People can suffer from sinusitis because of nose structure disfigurement. At times, the nose structure is congenitally deformed and other times, it occurs through trauma. In both cases, the doctor usually advises septoplasty. The nose structure is based on bone and cartilage.
The doctor will make a small incision inside the nostrils to access the bone and cartilage of the nose for making adjustments. To straighten the deviation in the septum, the doctor will either alter the bone or put silicone splints inside the nostrils to support the septum. The doctor will put the nasal packing post-surgery to absorb nasal discharge and bleeding.
Both the surgical treatments are almost painless as performed under the influence of anesthesia. The advanced treatment for sinusitis can restore back normal function. Both the surgeries are executed through a minimally invasive approach, which has better results than traditional methods.

|Advanced Surgery||Conventional Surgery|
|No Blood Loss||Intensive Blood Loss|
|Small incisions||Large Cuts|
|Faster Recovery Duration||Longer Recovery Duration|
|Fewer Chances of Infections||Prone to Infections|
Why is Sinusitis Treatment Necessary?
The inflammation causes obstruction in the air cavities of paranasal sinuses, leading to various problems and affecting life’s productivity. Therefore, sinusitis treatments are necessary to restore quality and healthy life. Each pair of sinuses is important and plays a vital role in the human body. There are four types of sinuses that are present in the human skull.
- Maxillary sinus– located in both the cheeks
- Frontal sinus– you will find it in the forehead between the eyes
- Ethmoid sinus– it is found beside the upper nose
- Sphenoid sinus– This pair is present behind the nose
If any of the sinuses get affected, it can cause severe issues, which may result in sinus headache, tenderness in the face, breathing problems, sleep apnea, nasal dripping, fever, fatigue, heaviness, or nose stuffiness. As reported by ENT doctors, people who have asthma, nasal polyps, or deviation in the nasal septum are vulnerable to sinusitis. Therefore, to remove the congestion in the nose and to get rid of sinusitis symptoms, doctors advise advanced treatment that has a faster recovery duration and no significant complications.
There are two types of sinusitis; acute sinusitis and chronic sinusitis. The former has mild symptoms and can be cured through medication and oral treatment. The latter is advanced sinusitis and has complex symptoms. However, few home remedies may manage the symptoms and make you feel better temporarily.
For example, over-the-counter medication like aspirins, nasal decongestant sprays, or remedies like saline nasal irrigation, warm compress with a hot towel. But these are not permanent solutions to sinusitis, and the overuse of nasal sprays or saline nasal irrigation may result in complications.
