Balloon Sinuplasty is a Modern Alternative to Traditional Sinus Surgery
Sick and Tired of Feeling Exhausted Because of Your Sinuses?
There is now a proven, convenient, in-office procedure that could solve your chronic sinus problem. It's called Balloon Sinuplasty (balloon sinus dilation). It takes less than an hour and lets you resume normal activities quickly: most patients resume normal activities within 24-48 hours..
Balloon Sinuplasty is a simple alternative to traditional sinus surgery. It is performed under local anesthesia in the office. Balloon Sinuplasty involves no cutting, no packing with gauze, and has very minimal side effects in the post-op recovery stages.
A tiny balloon catheter is inserted into the sinus opening and inflated to expand the passageway. Normal sinus airflow and drainage are restored when the balloon is deflated and removed.
When numerous medications, antibiotic prescriptions and doctor visits have failed, you may be ready to give up.
Clinical studies have shown that 20% or more of chronic sinusitis patients fail to get relief of symptoms simply with medications. For those patients, traditional sinus surgery may be recommended. Traditional sinus surgery is an invasive procedure done in a surgical setting under general anesthesia and enlarges the sinus opening by removing bone and tissue. It normally requires post-op nasal packing, and can result in facial bruising and a painful, extended recovery period.
Balloon sinuplasty is a minimally invasive procedure developed from the same techniques used by cardiologists to open blocked blood vessels. Ear Nose & Throat specialists use this advanced technology in-office to treat sinus passages blocked by chronic sinusitis. These physicians can now offer this as an alternative to traditional sinus surgery that is more convenient, cost-efficient, and satisfactory for the majority of their sinus patients.
