The sinuses are a connected system of hollow cavities in the skull. The largest sinus cavities are about an inch across. Others are much smaller.They’re lined with soft, pink tissue called mucosa. Normally, the sinuses are empty except for a thin layer of mucus. Maxillary Sinuses are located in your cheek bones and are the largest ones. Forehead has frontal sinuses whereas centre of eyes has ethmoid sinuses and behond your nose bones are sphenoid sinuses. The problem happens when the sinuses get clogged. Its like a traffic jam in your sinus cavity leading to long jam from frontal till sphenoid sinuses. This in turn leads to post nasal drip of infected mucus into the throat causing throat infection. Endoscopic sinus surgery is most commonly performed for inflammatory and infectious sinus disease.
The most common indications for endoscopic sinus surgery or FESS are as follows:
Chronic sinusitis refractory to medical treatment
Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leak closure
Infections by bacteria, fungi or viruses
Deviated Nasal Septum
Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery (FESS)involves the removal of diseased sinus tissue with improvement in the natural drainage channels by the creation of a pathway for infected material to drain from the sinus cavities.ince the surgery is done endoscopically and that too through the nasal cavities or nostrils hence no cut is requiired. Due to this reason this is also an almost bloodless surgery.

A good hospital needs to have qualified doctors with good experience. Most of the hospitals in the vicinity offer services of doctors who either do not have proper qualifications or do not possess requisite experience. We do not claim to be a tertiary care hospital providing services across all the streams of medicine and surgery but whatever service you get at Yashlok Hospital are first class in terms of quality.
We are probably the only hospital which has an inhouse Ultrasound and Colour Doppler facility. The hospital has state of art Digital X-Ray, ECG, Pathology Lab, Dental Centre, Physiotherapy Centre and Inhouse Pharmacy. The operating room at the hospital has the deployment of cutting edge technology which gives us the confidence of doing the most complex of the surgeries with relative ease.
Healthcare is a very different stream from any other service industry. People come to us only when they are in a problem which they are not able to understand. All our team members are thoroughly trained to provide the medical care with highest ethical standards and with compassion and empathy. The entire care programme is designed keeping the centricity of the patient in mind.
