Balloon Sinuplasty (Balloon Sinus Dilation) is a new treatment option for recurrent and persistent sinusitis sufferers!
Impact of Sinusitis
More than 37 million Americans suffer from sinusitis every year, making it one of the most common health conditions in the country. Traditionally, those who suffer from the pain, pressure and other symptoms of recurring and persisting sinus infection have two routes to relief:
(1) Medical therapy (antibiotics, steroids, etc.)
(2) Functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS)
Now, qualified patients have a new treatment option, a simple office procedure called balloon sinus dilation.
Balloon Sinus Dilation – Instant Relief that Lasts
Balloon sinus dilation is a minimally invasive treatment option that can be performed by several of our physicians right in their offices. The objective of balloon sinus dilation is to reshape anatomy to expand sinus pathways and restore drainage. The procedure utilizes small balloons placed in key places in the nose and sinus, which are then dilated to expand the sinus pathways. It may be an effective, lasting option for some patients whose symptoms do not resolve with medication.
The balloon sinus dilation procedure may not require general anesthesia, and in many cases the patient is able to resume normal activities within 24 hours. Our physicians can determine if your condition is one that may benefit from balloon sinus dilation and can help you understand the risks and benefits of this treatment option.
