In-office balloon sinuplasty is a safe and effective way to alleviate chronic sinus
problems. Those suffering from chronic sinus pressure and pain, headaches, frequent
sinus infections, decreased sense of smell and unrelenting congestion among other
complaints, can benefit from the long-lasting effects of in-office sinuplasty. Unlike
traditional sinus surgeries which often remove bone and tissue to restructure the
sinuses, balloon sinuplasty is less invasive and helps sinuses drain better by simply
expanding the passageways with a balloon.
Performed in the comfort of an office setting under local anesthesia, most find that in-
office balloon sinuplasty is not only effective, but convenient and less costly than sinus
procedures done in the hospital. In-office balloon sinuplasty typically takes an hour or
so depending on the number of sinuses to be treated. Recovery is speedy compared to
other sinus procedures and most are back to daily activities within a day or two.
In-office balloon sinuplasty is revolutionizing the treatment of chronic sinus ailments
and patient satisfaction is extremely high. It is safe, convenient, effective, and
minimally invasive. For those who are candidates, it provides a significantly less
expensive option to traditional sinus surgery.
