Traditional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery

Our Otolaryngologists James Frisk, MD and Lesley Soine, MD specialize in the treatment of nose and sinus conditions. Sinus conditions actually are among the most common issues we treat at Plains Ear, Nose Throat & Facial Plastic Surgery (Plains ENT).

Plains ENT offers sinus surgery in Fargo, Carrington and surrounding areas in eastern North Dakota and Northwestern Minnesota.

In endoscopic sinus surgery, a hole is made in the sinus by way of either the mouth or the face in order to remove whatever tissue may be blocking the sinus cavity. This step is usually taken once medications and antibiotics fail to clear up sinusitis.
