Sinuplasty


Balloon sinus dilatation is a new minimally invasive procedure that reopens the sinus pathways and restores drainage to deliver immediate relief to recurrent and chronic sinus sinusitis sufferers. In balloon sinus dilatation we seek to reshape the anatomy by inflating small balloons in key places in the nose and sinuses to expand the sinus pathways and restore drainage. Poor sinus drainage, which leads to infection and discomfort, is a source of persistent or recurring sinus pain. Antibiotics, decongestants and steroids can be used to minimize the discomfort of symptoms, but they do not fix the underlying drainage problem. By restoring sinus drainage, balloon sinus dilatation can provide lasting relief to qualified patients and end the sinusitis cycle.
