The latest treatment for sinusitis
For those who suffer from the headaches, congestion, fatigue, and other symptoms of sinusitis, Balloon Sinuplasty offers a safe, minimally invasive option to alleviate symptoms. During the procedure, small, flexible devices are inserted into the nostrils to gently open blocked sinus openings — in many cases without tissue or bone removal. The procedure offers several benefits, including:
- Safe and effective - While use of any surgical instrument involves some risk, clinical research has indicated the Balloon Sinuplasty™ system to be safe and effective in relieving symptoms of sinusitis.
- Minimally Invasive - The technology uses small, soft, flexible devices that enter entirely through the nostrils. These devices gently open blocked sinus openings, and in many cases, without tissue or bone removal.
- Reduced Bleeding - Because in many instances no tissue or bone is removed when using this technology, there may be reduced bleeding associated with the procedure.
- Improved recovery time - While recovery time varies with each patient, many people can return to normal activities within 24 hours.
- Does not limit treatment options - This technology is an endoscopic tool and may be used with other medical therapies or sinus surgery techniques. It does not limit future treatment options if you have progressive disease.
As with the use of any surgical instrument, there are risks, and results may vary from patient to patient. Find out if the Balloon Sinuplasty™ system is right for you.
