Balloon Sinus Dilation
What is Balloon Sinus Dilation?
If you suffer from poor sinus drainage you already know that antibiotics, decongestants, and steroids can do only so much. Balloon sinus dilation is a simple office procedure that gently expands the natural sinus openings to fix underlying drainage problems.
Until recently sufferers of chronic or recurrent sinusitis were limited to two treatment options: medication therapy or aggressive sinus surgery. Fortunately advances in medical science have opened new doors. Now there's a treatment that can be performed in your doctor’s office without the need for cutting or tissue removal.
Balloon sinuplasty & sinus dilation is a minimally invasive office procedure performed under local anesthesia that delivers immediate and long-lasting relief. Your doctor will reshape your sinus pathways by inflating small balloons in key places in the nose and sinuses restoring drainage.
Sinus Surgery with Balloon Sinuplasty
Unlike traditional sinus surgery Balloon Sinuplasty requires no cutting and no removal of bone and tissue.
Balloon Sinuplasty (BSP) uses a small flexible balloon catheter to open up blocked sinus passageways and facilitate drainage of the mucus that builds up in patients suffering from chronic sinusitis symptoms.
When the sinus balloon is inflated it restructures and widens the walls of the sinus passageway while maintaining the integrity of the sinus lining.
Published clinical data in the leading ENT journals shows that it is safe and effective: patients experienced no device-related adverse events and demonstrated statistically and clinically significant improvement in their sinusitis symptoms.
