Nearly 30 million Americans suffer from some form of sinusitis.

Balloon sinuplasty is a minimally invasive procedure that effectively relieves symptoms of chronic sinusitis.

Do You Suffer From Chronic Sinusitis?

If you’ve ever had sinusitis, you’re probably familiar with its uncomfortable symptoms, which include pain and tenderness around the eyes and cheeks, headaches, ear pain, nasal inflammation, and difficulty breathing due to congestion. Sinusitis can be acute or chronic. Acute sinusitis doesn’t last long and goes away on its own or responds to medication, while chronic sinusitis lingers and doesn’t respond to treatment. 

If you think you may have chronic sinusitis, don’t hesitate to reach out to South Florida ENT Associates. Our highly qualified medical professionals will be able to give you an accurate diagnosis and recommend the best treatment for your condition.

What is Balloon Sinuplasty?

Balloon sinuplasty is a minimally invasive procedure that has been steadily gaining popularity as an effective treatment for chronic sinusitis. In the past, the main treatments for chronic sinusitis were medication and surgery. Balloon sinuplasty gives us an effective and straightforward treatment that doesn’t require a long recovery process. 

During the procedure, we will inflate a tiny balloon inside your sinuses to expand the blocked area. Once the area has been widened, your sinuses will be able to drain naturally, relieving congestion and allowing you to breathe freely again.

What Is the Balloon Sinuplasty Procedure Like?

During your treatment, you will be resting in a reclining examination chair. We will administer IV sedation and topical anesthetics to make the experience relaxing and pain-free. We will insert a tiny catheter into your nostril and guide a small balloon into the blocked part of your sinuses. Once the balloon is in the correct location, we will inflate it, opening the blocked area. We will flush the area with saline and deflate and remove the balloon. Your sinuses will be able to drain properly again, and you should notice improvements in your breathing right away.
