Advanced Sinusitis Treatment – Balloon Sinuplasty
What Is Balloon Sinuplasty?
In-Office Balloon Sinuplasty is a minimally invasive procedure that relieves the pain and pressure associated with chronic sinusitis. It is used to safely and effectively treat the many issues caused by sinusitis for patients who are not responding well to prescription and over-the-counter medications and nasal steroids.
How Is Balloon Sinuplasty Performed?
Balloon Sinuplasty uses a flexible catheter-based instrument that allows the surgeon to reshape the sinuses with a miniature balloon opening up blocked sinuses. It restores normal drainage and function without removing bone or tissue. The technology dilates sinus openings or Ostia by gently remodeling the bones to create wider openings. Restructuring the walls of the sinus passages helps drain mucus from the blocked sinuses while preserving its natural structure.
Side-Effects of Balloon Sinuplasty?
Our healthcare providers can best explain the potential risks of surgery. In all published clinical data no serious adverse events attributable to the Balloon Sinuplasty system have been reported.
While recovery time will vary from patient to patient many people can return to normal activities within 24 hours after surgery.
