Balloon Sinuplasty Dramatically Improves a Child’s Life

In fact most patients are back at their everyday lives within 24-48 hours. (So if you’re a kid, that’s just a day or two of watching movies before you can rejoin the world.) As the article said:

“It was like night and day. It was remarkable,” his mother said.
