The traditional treatments such as pills, drops, and nasal sprays, just mask the symptoms and have unwanted side effects. For those who want long term relief, without all the medication, there is an answer, Balloon Sinuplasty.

New research and technology has led to successful treatment for those suffering from repeated sinus infections or chronic sinusitis. Over 375,000 people have found relief and a better quality of life with Balloon Sinuplasty.

Statistic Stats reveal some interesting facts on Balloon Sinuplasty

Balloon sinuplasty is considered extremely effective, with dramatic results reported within 1 week of surgery. Clinical evidence for balloon sinuplasty is found in over 69 publications, 

Sinusitis affects approximately 13% of adults in the US. It affects roughly 16% of women and 10% of men. Chronic sinusitis accounts for 18-22 million doctor’s office visits annually. Healthcare costs due to sinusitis are more than $8 billion each year

The biggest reason patients choose balloon sinuplasty is because of its reported effectiveness. Most patients see improvement in their quality of life soon after the surgery and do not need another surgery. 

A study done by Acclarent, Inc, found that chronic sufferers showed less nasal steroid use compared to those who opted for medical management. An earlier study showed that at the 2-year mark, chronic sufferers continued to report significant improvement and quality of life.

The surgery is usually performed under local anesthesia, and the surgeon threads a small catheter into the sinus before inflating a balloon with water to dilate the sinus opening. Patients report that the procedure is not any more difficult than having a tooth repaired, with most going back to work the following day. The benefits of balloon sinuplasty last for up to two years.
