Instant relief from sinusitis that last! It is what many Central Florida residents are dreaming of! Especially since it is one f the most common health condition, affecting over 37 million Americans. 

Many of which suffer from recurring pressure, pressure, congestion, headaches and other symptoms. There used to be only a couple of roads to relief, with medications, that need to be taken on a regular basis and don’t always work, or traditional sinus surgery, which isn’t always a desirable option for many. So what are those suffering suppose to do?

The Solution: Balloon Sinuplasty

A balloon sinuplasty is a minimally invasive endoscopic procedure used to treat chronic sinusitis. This effective treatment option is comfortable and is performed right here in our offices. Sinusitis is an inflammation of the lining within the paranasal sinuses. Once inflamed, the sinus cavities become a fertile ground for viruses, bacteria, and occasionally fungi to grow, resulting in infection.

The goal of a balloon sinuplasty is to enlarge the opening of the sinuses, reduce blockages and improve sinus drainage.  Studies show patients with balloon sinuplasty make fewer trips to their doctor, use less antibiotics and over the counter medication, experience less facial pain, and find it easier to perform day to day activity. 

How Does Balloon Sinuplasty Work? 

Balloon Sinuplasty is a minimally invasive endoscopic procedure. An endoscope with a small balloon at the end is placed through the nasal cavity. The small ballon is gently inflated, restructuring the passageway and pushing the tissue of the sinuses back. This allows for proper nasal drainage.

The entire treatment usually takes under an hour. Just imagine in just 45 minutes your sinus passages will be opened up and you can finally breathe easy. There isn’t any cutting of nasal tissue or bone. You don’t have to worry about any pain or facial bruising, you can even return to work the same day. Most patients will feel an immediate difference, all the tension and stress is gone, you can smell and breathe normally.

How Do Patients Feel After Balloon Sinuplasty?

“In a study tracking patients 2 years following their Balloon Sinuplasty Sinus Surgery in the OR, most chronic sinusitis patients report clinically meaningful improvement in sinus symptoms and quality of life”, according to Balloon Sinuplasty.

Most insurance companies cover the cost of Balloon Sinuplasty, but to ensure coverage, contact your insurance provider for the specifics of your policy.
