Balloon sinuplasty isn’t just faster than traditional endoscopic sinus surgery: in many cases, it’s better. That’s the inevitable takeaway from the many dozens of news stories and personal accounts I have scoured over the last few years.
As one of the surgeons put it: “We’re able to really change the dynamics, because we’re not hurting the tissue. It’s very minimally invasive and it really changes how we can address things.”
And the patient tells the rest: “I have a life again. I remember a year where I just laid in bed feeling so little energy that I couldn’t even get up.”
