FESS restores functional drainage while preserving normal tissue of sinuses. Before nasal endoscope was introduced, the ENT surgeon worn a headlight and performed sinus surgery with naked eyes.
Nowadays, with endoscopes that can 'see' at different angles, finer equipment and advanced medical imaging, sinus surgery is safely performed under video-endoscopic control. This also minimizes the chance of injury to the eyes, blood vessels, nerve and brain.
