Lasting Relief for Sinus Symptoms

Chronic sinus symptoms are more than an inconvenience. They can dramatically reduce your quality of life.

For these people, balloon sinuplasty may restore their quality of life by delivering effective, long-lasting relief from chronic sinus issues. A few of the symptoms that can be resolved with this procedure include:

  • Facial pressure
  • Postnasal drainage
  • Reduced sense of smell and taste
  • Sinus headaches
  • Nasal congestion and discharge
  • Tenderness around the eyes, cheeks, nose and forehead

Why choose Balloon Sinuplasty?

Chronic sinus symptoms are more than an inconvenience. They can dramatically reduce your quality of life. Some individuals spend upwards of several hundred dollars a year on over-the-counter treatments and doctors’ visits to treat their symptoms, and many feel that their professional and personal lives have been negatively impacted by their condition.

Minimally-invasive approach

No scars, bruising or swelling

No incisions or general anesthesia

No recovery time (24-hour downtime)

What to expect during your procedure

The balloon sinuplasty procedure is performed under local anesthesia. As such, you will be completely awake, but you won’t feel any pain or discomfort. During the operation, your doctor will insert two tiny catheters into the nasal cavity. The first is attached to a light and a camera, and the second contains a balloon. The balloon will then be inflated to open the sinuses and clear the blockages. This relieves the pressure and encourages the mucus to drain properly.

You will be free to return home immediately and may resume your normal daily routine with 24 hours. In general, our patients experience immediate relief from sinus pain and uncomfortable symptoms. In recent clinical studies, most patients reported that they were still free from their sinus symptoms two years after their operation.

Sinusitis:

Understanding your condition procedure

Each year, more than 37 million people suffer from acute or chronic sinusitis. It develops when the tissue that lines the sinuses becomes inflamed, causing mucus to develop that prevents the sinuses from draining properly. A blockage them forms throughout the nasal passages and creates a number of uncomfortable symptoms, including facial pain, pressure, congestion, postnasal drip, nasal drainage, headaches and more.

There are three types of sinusitis: acute (less than 4 weeks), subacute (4 to 12 weeks) and chronic (more than 12 weeks). There are a number of treatments available, including medical and natural therapies, as well as traditional and minimally-invasive surgeries. It’s estimated that 20 percent of chronic sinusitis patients cannot successfully treat their condition with medical therapy alone and instead require a procedure to obtain lasting relief.
