Balloon Sinuplasty: Chronic Congestion And Sinus Pain Relief
Every year millions of Americans suffer from some type of sinus pain. When that sinus pain becomes chronic, the congestion and other painful symptoms can seem never-ending. As time passes, people with chronic sinus symptoms just cope and deal with it by managing symptoms; but their quality of life may decrease and sufferers may find themselves with other symptoms like bad breath and loss of sense of smell.
However, long-term relief is possible. Balloon sinuplasty is a long-term, minimally invasive in-office sinus procedure that can solve your sinus pain without resulting in extended recovery time. Imagine going back to your normal activities like you used to!

Balloon Sinuplasty provides long-term sinus pain relief without surgery.
Sufferers of chronic sinus pain often accept that their sinus pain is part of life. They try to cope with it and manage symptoms by using medical therapy or getting endoscopic sinus surgery; however, medication can bring unwanted side effects and surgery can have a long recovery time – both limiting your activities. Surgery also requires the removal of bone and tissue which may lead to other complications in the future.
Balloon sinuplasty is a safe and effective alternative to sinus surgical procedures. It treats the underlying cause of chronic sinusitis by using a small balloon to gently open the sinus and nasal passage. Results include a minimum chance of complications, a short recovery period, and an immediate return to normal sinus drainage.
Balloon sinuplasty is covered by most insurances, and you will almost immediately see results.
The Balloon Sinuplasty Procedure
At first, a small balloon catheter is inserted into the sinus cavity that is affected. Next, the balloon is inflated to open and reshape the sinus passage so that it can easily drain. Once the infection has been cleared, the flexible balloon catheter is removed and you will be able to breathe easily again.
After the procedure, you should also see a significant reduction in sinus infections with the return of normal drainage.
Balloon Sinuplasty is more affordable than surgery
With sinus surgery, time and money costs can add up quickly. Hospitalization costs tend to include fees, anesthesia, and lost time due to weeks of recovery. Balloon sinus dilation helps you avoid these costs because it's done in an office, does not require any nasal packing, and has an average recovery time of 1-2 days.
Balloon sinuplasty is also covered by most insurances because it’s proven to be safe and effective, with a 95% effective rate shown in clinical trials.
The benefits of balloon sinuplasty are countless. If you are tired of suffering and ready to get back to your normal activities, it is time to schedule an appointment.
