When sinus surgery was first performed, surgeons would have to reach the sinuses by entering through the cheek area. This often caused scarring and possible disfigurement. In another traditional procedure, surgeons enter the sinus through the upper jaw.

Since endoscopic sinus surgery does not involve cutting through the skin – it is performed entirely through the nostrils – most patients can go home the same day.
