At Fix Your Sinuses in South Florida, patients are finding relief from chronic sinus issues through a new procedure called balloon sinuplasty.
The procedure is less invasive and is performed under local anesthesia, meaning that recovery times are shorter.
The procedure takes advantage of a technology that is also used in life-saving cardiac procedures. It involves using a catheter to position a balloon in the sinuses. When the balloon is inflated, it displaced the bones in the sinus cavity, opening them to promote better drainage.
Because the procedure is performed in a doctor’s office, the balloon sinuplasty cost is lower, and the out-of-pocket expense is often lower.
To find out specifically how you might benefit from balloon sinuplasty, contact your Palm Beach ENT specialist.
