What is Balloon Sinuplasty?
Balloon sinuplasty is a breakthrough treatment designed to relieve symptoms of sinusitis. This offers patients a safer and less invasive method than other sinusitis treatments. By eliminating the need to remove bone and nasal tissue, patients can also enjoy a quick recovery. After balloon sinuplasty, patients typically achieve a significant reduction in their sinusitis symptoms and an improved quality of life.
How is Balloon Sinuplasty Performed?
The balloon sinuplasty procedure is performed without any cutting or bone and tissue removal. This procedure is typically performed with either local anesthesia or general anesthesia to ensure the comfort of the patient. During treatment, a small, flexible catheter is inserted into the sinuses. Then, it is inflated to expand the sinus passageways. This allows us to remove any mucus and pus that has built up in the sinuses, which are the ultimate cause of sinusitis symptoms. Then, the catheter is removed and the treatment is complete. This procedure will take approximately one hour.
What is Recovery Like Following Ballon Sinuplasty?
Because the balloon sinuplasty procedure uses advanced techniques that don’t require any incisions or cutting, patients typically enjoy a rapid recovery after their treatment. Patients are typically able to resume work and other normal activities within two days of their treatment.
How Long Do the Results from Balloon Sinuplasty Last?
The balloon sinuplasty procedure is clinically proven to relieve sinusitis symptoms for up to two years or longer. Patients can enjoy long-lasting relief with this treatment. If necessary, patients are able to receive additional treatments in the future, thanks to the minimally invasive and safe nature of the procedure.
