In summary, functional endoscopic sinus surgery has become a widespread tool for the treatment of chronic sinus conditions. Within the office, under local anesthesia, aggressive post-operative care can greatly diminish the need to return to the operating room for revision endoscopic sinus surgery. Under local anesthesia, most limited procedures performed in the operating room can also be performed in the office. Effective post-operative care is critical to obtain the best possible results. Any and all means necessary must be taken to assure expert, detailed, and timely post-operative care.
