Diagnostic Endoscopy : Flexible nasopharyngolaryngoscopy uses an endoscope whose shape can be changed so it could go around corners. This is done for patients with problems such as snoring, laryngeal problems causing hoarseness and some throat problems like cancer of the throat. Rigid nasal endoscopy uses an endoscope that does not bend but is straight to look just in the nose. This is done for patients with nose, sinus and nasopharyngeal problems. The pictures can be seen on a monitor, as there is a tiny video camera on the end of the endoscope.
Endoscopic Sinus Surgery : This is the most effective way of performing sinus surgery. Sinusitis is cleared without any open operation, and the hospital stay is short and the procedure leaves no scars. Focus is on treatment of conditions of the nose and paranasal sinuses including allergies, septal deviations, chronic rhinosinusitis and neoplasms.
