The ENT specialist will diagnose sinusitis based on the symptoms, medical history, and a simple physical examination of the patient. The doctor will ask about your symptoms and how long they last, look into your ears, nose, and throat, and may tap or press on your face to test for tenderness over specific sinuses.
The modern and most advanced sinus treatment is minimally invasive where sinus air cells are opened under direct visualization. The surgeons use a small camera called an endoscope allowing the surgeons to complete the procedure using detailed image guidance. FESS is a minimally invasive technique where the complete procedure is performed using detailed image guidance. The procedure does not leave scar tissue and is painless.
