Find out how Balloon Sinuplasty offers sinusitis sufferers lasting relief
Chronic sinusitis sufferers understand just how bad it can get. The pain and pressure that builds behind your eyes, nose and cheeks can be unbearable. And when it lasts for weeks on end, it's impossible to be as productive and focused on daily activities. When sinusitis sufferers have tried every type of OTC and prescribed treatment and medication out there, it might be time to talk to a physician about Balloon Sinuplasty. Here is what you need to know about this effective new procedure.
What is Balloon Sinuplasty?
This breakthrough procedure uses minimally invasive techniques to go in through the nose with a specially designed catheter. Once the catheter reaches the inflamed sinus cavity, a small balloon is carefully inflated to widen and restructure the walls of the sinus cavity. The sinus passages can then be drained and cleared.
What are the benefits of Balloon Sinuplasty?
The benefits include:
- No scarring
- Minimal discomfort
- Immediate relief
- Outpatient surgery with a very quick recovery
- 95% improvement rate for sinus symptoms
