Balloon Sinuplasty Rides into Texas
Here we go again: a new local news outfit has caught a whiff of the revolution that is balloon sinuplasty, and a new patient has gone on record reporting her astonishment with its success: Judy Spain “was sick all the time, I had no energy, and a constant sinus headache. I did what I had to do, then I would go home and lay down,” she told Texas website Big Country. Now, she says, “I can breathe through my nose again!”
Balloon sinuplasty is a non-invasive procedure that can be done right in your sinus surgeon’s office under local anesthesia. A simple catheter is threaded up through the nostril to where the blockage has occurred, and a tiny balloon is inflated to create an opening for drainage and breathing. The sinus surgeon finishes the job with a saline rinse, and the patient can be back to her regular life that same day.
At my Los Angeles sinus surgery offices, I have been one of the pioneers in balloon sinuplasty, successfully offering this safe, efficient and readily available option to Angelenos and out-of-towners alike. If you have chronic sinus pain or sinusitis, I invite you to make an appointment today to let an expert address an eminently solvable problem.
