Chronic sinusitis is one of those quiet tortures that many people bear without seeing a doctor. Often patients opt to “wait it out,” or else they resort to copious amounts of OTC medications.
Balloon sinuplasty has changed the landscape considerably, giving even the most surgery-averse patients a fast and painless alternative to conventional endoscopic sinus surgery:
Balloon Sinuplasty enables physicians to treat sinusitis entirely through the nostrils, and in many cases without tissue or bone removal. This approximately 10 minute procedure can enable many patients can return to work within 1-2 days.
A tiny balloon is threaded into the sinus and inflated, creating an opening for drainage and gently sculpting the surrounding bone. In a matter of minutes, the pressure vanishes and the tissues begin to heal. It is an extraordinarily fast process.
