Hi,

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

Regards
Dr. Naveen Kumar

I have a badly deviated nasal septum, along with problems of sinusitis. Breathing becomes very difficult esp in winters when i catch cold. I have consulted some ENTs and all of them recommend surgery but i am not really ready for a surgery so i need some alternative treatment and i have heard enough about homeopathy and its successful treatment for DNS and sinusitis as well. Please advise. -Manzah
