Long-Term Sinus Relief Without Surgery
Balloon Sinuplasty can solve the underlying problems of chronic sinusitis. Balloon Sinuplasty is the opening of the sinus cavity using a small balloon. It is a minimally-invasive in office procedure that doesn’t involve cutting or the removal of tissue. There is a minimal risk of complications and a short recovery period.
Balloon Sinuplasty is covered by most insurances because it is successful and safe. Results are noticeable almost immediately.
Balloon Sinuplasty: Before and After
This safe procedure works by gently opening the blocked sinus passage. A tiny catheter is inserted through the nose and is placed inside the blocked sinus cavity. Once in place, a small balloon is inflated and safely opens the passage. Once the passage is open, the sinuses are drained and cleaned to remove any infection.
Dr. Kevin Browne and his team will use topical anesthetics to numb the sinuses. He uses a specialized endoscope to locate the treatment area and place a catheter with a very small balloon on the end.
Dilate & Restore
The little balloon is gently inflated to expand and dilate the sinus passageways. When the balloon is deflated and removed, the passages remain open to restore normal sinus drainage.
Balloon Sinuplasty takes about an hour, and patients experience a feeling of immediate relief and can resume normal activities quickly. Most can return to work or school within 24-48 hours.
Balloon Sinuplasty Procedure
Balloon Sinuplasty gets to the root of your sinus issues. A small balloon is inserted through the nose and into the cavity that is affected. The balloon is then inflated to open the passage gently. The infection is then cleaned out and drained so that normal breathing and sinus function can continue.
The procedure makes it so that the sinuses can drain naturally and decrease future infections. Once your sinus cavity is opened up you can begin to experience a reduction in all of your symptoms. You may even see improvement in your overall health.
