Balloon Sinuplasty Improves Quality of Life
Balloon sinuplasty has changed the way we treat chronic sinusitis in this country. Procedures that once required general anesthesia and lengthy recovery times have been replaced by the balloon dilation process, which is inexpensive, and fast. Best of all, because the recovery time is minimal, patients can get back to a life full of better breathing the very same day.
This recent article covers our history of treatments for sinusitis, from the development of endoscopic sinus surgery techniques up through the FDA’s approval of balloon sinus surgery. It also highlights one of the collateral benefits of this procedure – namely that it makes life easier on those for whom invasive surgery is prohibitively intensive:
The procedure also is more affordable for patients because they’re not paying for general anesthesia and because it’s performed in office as opposed to a hospital; thus, more people who require sinus surgery are enjoying a better quality of life.
“It just has opened a lot of doors to help patients deal with chronic sinusitis,” Williams said. “They don’t have to struggle anymore.”
