Sinuses are hollow cavities behind your nose and the eyes. There are 4 pairs of sinuses which are all interconnected. The inner lining of the sinus has a thin layer of mucosa which is required to keep the nose moist so that the pollutants can be blocked in the nose itself and do not reach the lungs. The problem arises when these sinuses get blocked. The sinuses can get blocked due to several reasons - infection in the nose, virus, allergies or deviated nasal septum. There is a famous saying about common cold - take medicine and it will go away in a week and do not take medicine and it will go away in a week. If the blockage of the sinuses is due to a viral infection then you would recover without much ado. But if the blockage is recurrent and persists for long period of time then it is time to consult an ENT Specialist. The doctor will find out the cause behind recurrent sinutsitis. If the cause is due to an allergy then avoiding the allergen will be the cure. However if this also does not work then the doctor will order an X-Ray of the PNS region or CT Scan in both the Axial and the Coronal View. If the cause of your chronic sinus blockage is the deviation in the nasal bone then surgery is the option. This condition is called Deviated Nasal Septum.
For this condition there are two types of surgeries which are gone by the ENT Surgeon :
FESS - Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery is done through the nostrils using an endoscope in which the ENT surgeon will remove polyps in the sinuses or create a pathway for drainage of the infected material from the sinuses. The diseased sinus tissue is also removed during the surgery. There is no incision and it is a bloodless surgery. The patient has to stay in the hospital for just one day. Nasal packs are applied after the surgery which are removed within a day or two.
Septoplasty - Some people suffer from chronic sinusitis due to deviated nasal septum. Nasal septum is the soft tissue which separates the two nostrils. In some patients this septum is bent on one side which makes one of the nostrils smaller than the other. This obstructs the air which has to go through the nose and keep the sinuses dry. The lack of air blocks the sinuses and causes sinusitis. In Septoplasty, the surgeon the straighten the nasal septum and the bones in the nose. The surgery lasts for 30-45 minutes and the patient is discharged from the hospital on the next day. The nasal pack which is applied to the nose after the surgery is removed in a couple of days.
Most of the sinus problems can be cured by medicines or natural remedies available at home. However when the natural remedies fail to solve the problem then you can visit our ENT specialist who would diagose the problem by examining you under the ENT microscope and then getting some radiological tests like X-Ray or CT Scan. If surgery is required then the cost of FESS would be INR 40000 - 50000 while the cost of Septoplasty would be INR 30000 - INR 40000 depending upon the room category chosen by you.
If you have a health insurance card which is given by your company then the surgery is covered from day one while if you have a policy which is purchased by you then this surgery is covered after two years of buying the health policy. However there are some policies where the coverage starts earlier. Not all insurance companies have uniform benefits and therefore it is best to contact the hospital insurance helpdesk with your policy to know the exact coverage available to you. If the hospital is not on the cashless panel of your insurance company then you would get reimbursement for the payment done by you at the hospital for your treatment.
