Hi Sandip,

FESS which is Functional endoscopic sinus surgery mainly used for the treatment of nasal polyps, sinus problems, infections, deviated nasal septum (DNS) etc. Whether you need to operate completely depends on your symptom frequency and difficulty you are facing, on physical examination etc. Cost and insurance coverage varies from hospital to hospital and company to company.

Take Care!
