Are you a candidate for Balloon Sinuplasty?
- Posted on: Jun 13 2016
If you suffer from chronic sinusitis, recurring sinusitis, chronic sinus pressure, seasonal allergies, and even migraines headaches, you are likely looking for a long term solution! Balloon Sinuplasty has been the answer for millions of people across the country and throughout the world.
Until recently, sufferers of chronic or recurrent sinusitis were limited to two treatment options: more medical therapy including antibiotics and allergy therapy or aggressive sinus surgery.
Balloon Sinuplasty is a revolutionary treatment that can be performed in the office without the need for cutting or tissue removal. This simple office procedure gently expands the natural sinus openings, with a tiny sinus balloon, to fix underlying drainage problems in a brief non-surgical office procedure, with simple IV sedation. This allows the sinus to ventilate and drain resolving the sinus infection and relieving the sinus pressure and headache. Patients are back to normal activity the next day and don’t typically require any pain medicine. If you have been stuck in a cycle of recurring sinus infections and pressure, balloon sinuplasty may be the answer for you.
Take a quick self-assessment quiz of your symptoms to see if balloon sinuplasty is a solution for you!
