Safe and Effective Sinusitis Treatment

balloon-sinuplastyAlmost 40 million Americans suffer from chronic sinusitis. As a result, there is a high demand for an effective treatment that does not involve surgery.

Since 2005, many patients have found relief with balloon sinuplasty. The procedure involves using small balloons in much the same way they are used for cardiac procedures. The balloons are inserted into the sinuses and inflated, pushing open the underlying bone structure and enlarging sinus drainage passages.

The entire procedure is performed under local anesthesia.

Since the sinuses are accessed from under the lip, scarring is minimized. Recovery following the procedure is quick, and many patients can return to their normal routine in a day or two.

Because it is minimally invasive, it offers many advantages over traditional sinus surgery. It is approved by the FDA and can be performed in ear, nose, and throat clinics.

Balloon sinuplasty cost may be covered by insurance, and it is important to consult with your doctor about any potential complications from the procedure.
