What Are the Benefits of Balloon Sinuplasty?
Before balloon sinuplasty became available, the only treatment options for chronic sinusitis were medication and surgery. With balloon sinuplasty, our Fort Lauderdale ENT doctors have a minimally invasive alternative to surgery that is usually equally effective. Benefits include:
- Quick procedure: The procedure takes about an hour, and you can go home again on the same day.
- Pain free: With IV sedation and topical anesthetics, you shouldn’t feel any pain, and any discomfort should be minimal.
- Long-lasting results: Most patients enjoy their results for over two years. As your sinus passages are widened during balloon sinuplasty, future blockages are prevented, and recurrence becomes less likely.
- Non-surgical: The procedure doesn’t involve cutting or removal of tissue, which means you won’t have any scarring or stitches.
