If you or a loved one is seeking relief from the pain and pressure of sinusitis, then Balloon Sinuplasty is a great solution. In fact, it has become the most popular and proven way to alleviate the uncomfortable symptoms. For the icing on the cake, the procedure is minimally invasive, has a fast recovery time, and can be performed in the doctor’s office. 

How Does Balloon Sinuplasty Work? 

Don’t worry, there is no cutting involved. This new technique has been tested and effective for relief of sinusitis. 

The physician Inserts a guide catheter, that is attached to a wire and a small balloon, through the nostril and near the sinus opening. The catheter, is then inserted to cleanse the sinus with a saline solution. 

After the opening of the affected sinus is cleared, the balloon is deflated and removed, but the sinus remains open. By gently reconfiguring the structure of the bones in the nose, the catheter restores normal sinus drainage, and keeps post-operative pain and bleeding to a minimum. Most patients can return home, the same day of the procedure.

What Makes Balloon Sinuplasty Less Invasive And Safer?

Unlike traditional sinus surgery, balloon sinuplasty does not require incisions, or any removal of bone or tissue, The results are immediate and you won’t need to re-do the procedure to maintain the relief. 

How Long Does Recovery From Balloon Sinuplasty Take?

Like all procedures, recovery time can vary from person to person. Typically, you can return to work in just a couple of days. Without all the problems caused by chronic sinusitis. 

What Can You Expect After Balloon Sinuplasty?

It is a popular procedure because of the dramatic and lasting improvement in the symptoms caused by sinusitis.
