What Is Balloon Sinuplasty? Help Relief Sinus Pain & Pressure
While the Fall weather may be beautiful, for many of us living in Orlando, it’s also the season for allergy problems and sinus infections. Flowers blooming, pollen, grass, and a number of others can trigger congestion, headaches, itchy eyes, facial pressure and pain.
“Sinus infections occur when mucus in the sinuses is not able to drain appropriately, causing the secretions to accumulate, which makes the mucus more likely to become infected. If an individual suffers from a cold or allergies, sinuses can become inflamed and are unable to drain. This can lead to congestion and infection,” according to Baylor College of Medicine.
If you suffer with chronic sinusitis, Balloon Sinuplasty has been proven to be very effective. This short in office procedure provides immediate and lasting relief for those suffering from acute sinus pressure.
“Advances in in-office procedures have significantly improved over the last several years making these less invasive procedures, such as balloon sinus dilation, a viable option.”
