Orlando residents are finding relief from chronic sinusitis with Balloon Sinuplasty. According to the Centers for Disease Control, Balloon Sinuplasty has helped over 25 million Americans.

If you are experiencing any of these problems, you should consider Balloon Sinuplasty for relief

  • Have chronic sinus problems that last for several weeks or even months.
  • Have inflamed or blocked sinuses.
  • Have had previous sinus surgery and still have sinus problems.
  • Those with recurring acute sinusitis
  • Experiencing sinus pressure, pain, headache, congestion, pain in the ears, nasal drainage and persistent cough.

Balloon Sunuplasty is a minimally invasive endoscopic procedure during which a thin balloon catheter is inserted into the nose.

The goal of a balloon sinuplasty is to enlarge the opening of the sinuses, reduce blockages and improve sinus drainage.
