What is Balloon Sinuplasty?
Are you constantly suffering from chronic sinus infections and sinus pressure? Has medical therapy failed you? Do you want to avoid invasive surgery? Do you feel like you have run out of treatment options? If this sounds like you, a minimally invasive procedure called Balloon Sinuplasty may be the option for you. Balloon Sinuplasty is a procedure that can provide long-term relief for chronic sinusitis patients.
Am I a candidate for Balloon Sinuplasty?
You might be a good candidate for Balloon Sinuplasty if:
- You have sinusitis
- You do not have nasal polyps, tumors, or any other nasal obstructions
- You can tolerate a procedure using only local anesthesia
- Your maxillary, frontal, and sphenoid sinuses are affected
Though Balloon Sinuplasty is typically only performed on adults, a child may qualify if they have not responded to other treatments.
