Why Choose Balloon Sinuplasty?
Sinus pressure is both a common symptom and an agonizing way to live. So uncomfortable is the condition, in fact, that many of the people I see at the Los Angeles Sinus Institute inquire about sinus surgery as a means of relieving that pressure. Although we offer a great number of cutting edge surgical interventions, today one alternative stands above the rest for its ease and quick recovery time: balloon sinuplasty.
You may have heard about this procedure before – it has been trumpeted as a breakthrough on major media sites and in newspapers across the U.S. Balloon sinuplasty is so simple that it can be done on an outpatient basis, and so non-invasive that many patients can return to their regular active lives within 24-48 hours. It is true minimally invasive sinus therapy, a speedy on-site cure for sinus pain that involves no knives, incisions, or stitches whatsoever.
The procedure is simplicity itself. A flexible tube known as a Relieva Balloon Sinuplasty device is threaded through the nostril and into the sinus, where your blockage has occurred. Gentle dilation is then performed by inflating the balloon, which creates an opening for your mucus to drain as it should. Warm nasal irrigation follows to help accelerate the drainage process, and the instrument is then removed. You are done less than an hour after the procedure has begun.
Well over 122,000 patients have been treated with balloon sinuplasty nationwide, and in the latest published study, 90% of sinus sufferers would recommend the procedure to others. It works, it’s fast, and the recovery time is astonishingly quick.
