If chronic sinus problems like nasal congestion, infections, or headaches don’t improve with allergy treatments or medications, a balloon sinuplasty may be your best option for relief.
Often called balloon sinus dilation, the balloon sinuplasty is a safe, effective, and pain-free procedure that offers a faster recovery than traditional methods of sinus surgery. At ENT and Allergy Specialists, your physician can perform this procedure right in the office on an outpatient basis.
Your specialist gently inserts a small, flexible sinus balloon catheter into your clogged sinus passageways. As the balloon inflates, it pushes against the sinus passageways, helping to open them and provide relief. Recovery is generally fast, and most patients find they can return to work and normal activities in about two days.
After your procedure, you can expect to have more clear and open nasal passages. This leads to easier breathing and fewer sinus-related problems. Since the procedure doesn’t involve any incisions, you won’t have the complications associated with other types of sinus surgeries.
You might experience some minimal swelling, which usually feels like sinus congestion. This goes away in time. You should sleep with your head elevated and lubricate your nose with saline spray to prevent post-procedural bleeding or complications.
For most people, the balloon sinuplasty offers results that last for years. In some cases, you may need to repeat the procedure if your symptoms come back.
If you have frequent sinus infections, trouble breathing, or chronic allergies, a balloon sinuplasty can offer fast relief. It’s an ideal procedure for people that aren’t interested in invasive methods or who can’t afford traditional sinus surgery.
The physicians at ENT and Allergy Specialists are the area's most experienced surgeons in balloon sinuplasty. They’ve helped thousands of patients breathe more easily with this simple and effective procedure.
