FAQs

Why does an ear, nose, and throat specialist perform nasal endoscopy?

Nasal endoscopy offers our ENT surgeon a reliable, visual view of the sinus drainage passages. A rigid endoscope is placed to view the nasal cavity. The procedure is used to visualize signs of nasal obstruction as well as detect nasal polyps hidden from routine nasal examination. During the endoscopic exam, the physician also looks for pus as well as polyp formation and other causes for recurrent sinusitis.
