Balloon Sinus Dilation
Relief that lasts, without a lengthy recovery
Balloon Sinus Dilation is a treatment for Chronic Sinusitis and related conditions that cause obstructions in the passageways of the nose and sinus. Balloons gently open passageways by pushing tissues aside so that the sinuses can properly drain and breathing functions improve. If you suffer from chronic sinus infections or other related conditions, your procedure may be covered in part or entirely. We work with most insurance providers to ensure that all our patients have access to the treatments they will benefit from the most.
How it works
Your physician first locates the sinus area to be treated.
The device is carefully positioned.
Your physician gently inflates the small balloon and dilates the treatment area to restore drainage. The balloon is removed from the treatment area.
Effective and Safe
Balloon Sinus Dilation is a safe and effective sinus procedure for chronic sinusitis patients seeking relief from uncomfortable sinus pain symptoms.
If managing your symptoms with ongoing rounds of medical intervention isn’t working and having traditional sinus surgery isn’t something that fits your busy lifestyle, then you should consider Balloon Sinus Dilation.
Major Benefits of Balloon Sinus Dilation Include:
Shorter recovery period compared with surgery
Less Expensive than invasive surgery
No general anesthesia is required
Return home the same day
Can be performed in office
As effective as traditional sinus surgery
With Balloon Sinus Dilation, there is no cutting of nasal bone or tissue. More than 420,000 patients suffering from chronic sinusitis symptoms have been treated by ear, nose and throat doctors using Balloon Sinus Dilation. While recovery time varies with each patient, recovery is typically fast. In a study of in-office balloon dilation, most patients returned to work and normal activity within 2 days.
