Surgery: Less invasive and can be treated on an outpatient basis.

Insert the tip of the probe into the mucosa using a high-frequency current to form the lamina propria with bass.

Endoscopic sinus surgery = (ESS)

Compared to conventional intranasal surgery with the naked eye, sinus surgery using an endoscope via the nose has been recognized to greatly improve the accuracy and safety of the surgery.

Advances in surgical technology using monitors-TVs and recording equipment have traditionally required hospitalization for 1 to 3 weeks, but now it can be done on a day trip.
