Balloon Sinuplasty: Breathing Easy Without Surgery

If you suffer from frequent or severe sinus infections, then you understand the struggle. The struggle to breathe, the struggle with constant pain and pressure, the struggle to sleep. You face each day fighting to accomplish your goals and maintain your priorities.

Like the millions of Americans who suffer from sinusitis, you have already tried every option. You have experienced the frustration and confusion of over-the-counter (OTC) medications. You may have found temporary symptom relief from natural remedies, but the pain is still too much to bear.  Like so many sinus sufferers, you may believe that the only long-term solution involves painful and risky endoscopic sinus surgery.

It is possible to find long-term relief from the pain and suffering without the side effects of medication or the complications from surgery with Balloon Sinuplasty. Dr. Brian Lee and the professionals at Scottsdale Sinus & Allergy Center can help you understand all of your options, including Balloon Sinuplasty.

Balloon Sinuplasty means relief for patients

Sinus Problems Solved!

Balloon Sinuplasty is a proven method to solve the underlying problems with your sinuses. Unlike medication, balloon sinuplasty physically opens the sinus cavity and cleans out the infection. It is a minimally-invasive procedure that is performed from the comfort of the office. No cutting, no removing tissue, and minimal risk of complications.

Balloon sinuplasty is so successful that it is covered by most insurance plans. Sinus balloon surgery is clinically proven and results in patients who can breathe easily. Results are noticeable almost immediately and there is very little pain.

Unlike other treatments, balloon sinuplasty gets to the root of the problem. A sinus balloon procedure involves inserting a tiny catheter through the nose and into the affected sinus cavity. Once the blockage is located, the balloon is inflated to gently open the passage.

Once the passage is opened, the bacterial infection is cleaned out and drained. Normal breathing and sinus function can continue. Sinuplasty allows the sinuses to drain naturally, contributing to overall sinus health and a decrease in future infections.

When your sinus cavity is open, you will finally begin to experience a significant reduction in pain, pressure, headaches, and other sinus symptoms. You will begin to sleep easily, wake up rested, and have the energy to face the day. You may see significant improvement in your overall health as your eating, sleeping, and breathing patterns return to normal.

Breathe better with Balloon Sinuplasty

Balloon Sinuplasty Cost: The affordable solution

Unlike endoscopic sinus surgery, with balloon sinuplasty, there is no hospitalization, no anesthesia, and no long-term recovery. As this minor procedure continues to be a proven cost-effective alternative to surgery, insurance coverage is growing. Sinuplasty is widely accepted by most insurance companies. Doctors, patients, and insurance companies have learned that balloon sinus treatment improves patient health, reduces long-term expenses, and results in better overall health.

Balloon sinus treatment lowers the overall cost by controlling expenses in a number of areas. The procedure is done in the doctor’s office which prevents expensive hospital fees and co-pays. There is no need for a costly anesthesiologist or the other additional medical professionals that would be required for a hospital surgical procedure and recovery.

Patients are also able to get back to work quicker and have a significant reduction in the long term cost of medication and doctor’s office visits. Balloon sinuplasty benefits the individual patient as well as the entire community. Patients have increased productivity and can better meet the needs of their families and communities. They experience fewer missed days of work and have a significant increase in their overall quality of life.

According to clinical research (1), the balloon sinuplasty success rate is greater than 95%. This astounding rate of success is driving more patients to find long-lasting affordable relief through balloon sinuplasty. This is why balloon treatment has become the gold standard for long-term sinus relief.

Balloon Sinuplasty Risks: The safe & effective solution

As of March 2017, more than 535,000 patients have experienced the life-changing benefits of balloon sinuplasty. Each day, hundreds of additional people turn to sinuplasty to find relief from the pain and pressure of sinusitis. These individuals come from every walk of life, from  celebrities and professional athletes to everyday men and women who make our community a great place to live.

People are turning to sinuplasty because it works and it is safe. Clinical research has followed patients for years after their balloon procedure and found that it is safe and effective as a long-term solution. Because there is no cutting or removing of bone/tissue, balloon sinuplasty complications are very rare. There is minimal risk of infection, bleeding, or other side effects that often accompany traditional surgery.

Balloon sinuplasty recovery is very quick and patients can typically return to all normal activities in 1 - 2 days as compared to the weeks or months of recovery from endoscopic sinus surgery. Traditional surgery also requires a doctor to tear off scabs to prevent scar tissue from blocking your airways. With sinuplasty, there is no permanent removal of bone or tissue.
