Treat your chronic sinusitis (blocked sinuses) with Balloon Sinuplasty. Book an appointment online today to relieve the pain.
Balloon sinuplasty is a procedure used to treat blocked sinuses.
Sinuses are air-filled pockets behind the facial bones surrounding the nose. Each sinus has an opening through which mucus drains. This drainage keeps your sinuses working well and you healthy. Anything that obstructs that flow may cause a build-up of mucus in the sinuses, which may lead to infection and inflammation of the sinuses.
Sinusitis occurs when the linings of your nose, sinuses and throat become inflamed, possibly from a pre-existing cold or allergies. Chronic sinusitis is when this inflammation lasts three months or more.
Typical treatment for sinusitis begins with medication prescribed by your doctor. However, many chronic sinusitis sufferers don’t get relief with medication. For these patients, a surgical procedure may be recommended.
Balloon Sinuplasty TM is a minimally invasive procedure that opens sinus passages. It relieves the pain and pressure associated with chronic sinusitis.
In Balloon Sinuplasty TM, inflamed sinuses are opened in the same way that doctors open up blocked arteries during balloon angioplasty. After Balloon Sinuplasty TM, the sinuses remain open, allowing the return of normal sinus drainage and relief of sinus pressure.
