Re: Balloon Sinuplasty vs. Sinus Surgery

I'm not sure what FESS stands for, but I've heard good things about balloon sinuplasty. It won't help for cases of deviated septums and growths, but if the airway/sinuses are constricted causing problems, it's supposed to be a lot less invasive. I'm curious as to how long the affects last if it's temporary or long-term, but even full surgery isn't guarunteed long-term.
