Thank you for your query.

1. It would be a good idea for you to upload your plain CT PNS (Para Nasal Sinuses) Scan Images (not the report) for an accurate assessment. It is the gold standard imaging before any septal or sinus surgery is planned.

2. Balloon Sinuplasty may be an alternative to FESS (Functional Endosocpic Sinus Surgery) in your case. However, I will need to review your CT images.

3. You may contact:
a. Dr. XXXXXXX N. Dutt, WWW.WWWW.WW b. Dr. XXXXXXX XXXXXXX WWW.WWWW.WW c. Dr. Kumaresh Krishnamoorty WWW.WWWW.WW d. Dr. S. XXXXXXX
e. Dr. A. Mahadeviah WWW.WWWW.WW f. Prof Dr. H. Vijayendra WWW.WWWW.WW
I hope that I have answered your query. If you have any further questions, I will be available to answer them.
