ENT Specialist 's  Response

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum,
Pan sinusitis means all the four paranasal sinuses are filled with either edematous tissues or sinus secretions. Continuous running nose can be due to nasal allergy. With surgery the septum can be corrected and the sinuses opened up. It is performed inside the nasal cavity using an endoscope, hence no scar is seen from outside. Cost of the surgery varies from centre to centre ranging from 25,000 to 60,000 INR. In your mediclaim this surgery does get included (Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery).
Take care
