What is Balloon Sinuplasty™?
Chronic Sinusitis and it's painful symptoms can be devastating. As an alternative to surgery and repeated use of antibiotics and other medications, there is an effective new alternative procedure called Balloon Sinuplasty™.
Balloon Sinuplasty™ is a less invasive technology than traditional sinus surgery and the procedure can be performed right in our office. This new FDA-approved procedure uses a small, flexible, sinus balloon catheter to gently and effectively open blocked sinuses. The sinus balloon is inflated to gently restructure and widen the sinus pathway without damaging fragile sinus linings.
Balloon Sinuplasty™ Benefits
The benefits of Balloon Sinuplasty™ Technology:
- Safe and Effective
While use of any surgical instrument involves some risk, clinical research has indicated the Balloon Sinuplasty™ System to be safe and effective in improving symptoms of sinusitis.
- Minimally Invasive
The technology uses small, soft, flexible devices that enter entirely through the nostrils. These devices gently open blocked sinus openings, and in many cases, without tissue or bone removal.
- Minimal Bleeding
Because in many instances no tissue or bone is removed when using this technology, there may be little bleeding associated with the procedure.
- Quick Recovery Time
While recovery time varies with each patient, many people can quickly return to normal activities.
- Does Not Limit Treatment Options
This technology is an endoscopic tool and may be used with other medical therapies or sinus surgery techniques. It does not limit future treatment options if you have progressive disease.
