Take a path to better breathing 

Sinusitis can happen at any age. Yes, even children can feel the agonizing pain and pressure of sinusitis.

A good rule of thumb, if the symptoms of a cold hasn’t subsided after a week or so, it may be sinusitis. Have it checked out by the team at Orlando Ears, Nose & Throat.

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. If it becomes chronic there may be a structural problem in the nose or sinuses.

How Does Balloon Sinuplasty Work?

A highly effective way to get relief from sinusitis is with Balloon Sinuplasty. A minimally invasive endoscopic procedure during which a thin balloon catheter is inserted into the nose. The balloon is gradually inflated to relieve blockages and widen the sinus pathways. The goal of a balloon sinuplasty is to enlarge the opening of the sinuses, reduce blockages and improve sinus drainage.

Balloon Sinuplasty is Less invasive and Safer

Balloon Sinuplasty is less invasive, since there isn’t cutting of the tissue or nasal bone. It is done in the doctor’s office, with a local anesthetic. When everything is complete, you can even drive yourself home. 

Recovery Time for Ballon Sinuplasty Procedure 

While recovery time may vary from person to person, in most cases you can return to work in a day or two. Most patients experience a dramatic improvement, according to Balloon Sinuplasty, “A clinical study of 1,036 patients at multiple institutions reported that sinus symptoms improved in 95% of patients at an average follow-up period of 9 months. In another study, patients reported symptom improvement up to two years after having the procedure.
