Balloon Sinuplasty for Young Sinusitis Sufferers
Flash: You don’t have to be especially advanced in years to benefit from balloon sinuplasty, the new procedure that lets sinus surgeons create an open airway in an afternoon. For proof, see this video, one of the many news stories that have been published recently:
“I’m 35,” said Rueben Ford, a father of two. “I shouldn’t have this much trouble breathing and walking around.”
After suffering from chronic bronchitis and sinus infections, he had a balloon inserted in his nose. Experts say the cure is permanent.
“I used get a sinus infection from November to May,” Ford said.
This is the very definition of chronic sinusitis, and, not incidentally, a terrible way to live. Watch the news story and you will soon witness the predictable outcome: balloon sinuplasty helps to reshape the man’s sinus openings, promoting drainage and preventing further build-up of mucus and pressure.
I am proud to have been one of the first physicians in California to offer in-office balloon sinuplasty to my patients. If you suffer from ongoing pressure, pain and headaches, I urge you to contact my sinus surgery practice here today.
