Balloon Sinuplasty technology utilizes a small, flexible, sinus balloon catheter that is placed into the nose to reach the sinuses. The sinus balloon catheter is gradually inflated to gently restructure the previously blocked nasal passage, maintaining the integrity of the sinus lining, preserving normal anatomy and mucosal tissue, while restoring normal sinus drainage and function improving patient quality of life. There is minimal bleeding, and most patients return to normal activities within 2 days after an office-based Balloon Sinuplasty procedure. Research has shown the majority of patients enjoy significant, long lasting improvement in their sinus symptoms.
- Safe and Effective
While use of any surgical instrument involves some risk, clinical research has indicated Balloon Sinuplasty Technology is safe and effective in improving symptoms of sinusitis.
- Minimally Invasive
Balloon Sinuplasty Technology is an endoscopic procedure.
- Provides for earlier intervention when medical therapy has failed.
- Performed using local anesthesia.
- Performed in the relative comfort of our office.
- Does not require an overnight hospital stay.
- Lower copay and procedural costs than a hospital stay.
- Minimal Bleeding
Because no tissue or bone is removed when using Balloon Sinuplasty Technology, little bleeding is associated with the procedure.
- Quick Recovery Time
While recovery times vary by individual, many patients are able to return to normal activities within 48 hours.
- Does Not Limit Treatment Options
Balloon Sinuplasty Technology is an endoscopic tool and may be used with other medical therapies or sinus surgery techniques. With little or no scar tissue created by the procedure, there are no limitations on future treatment options if you have progressive disease.
