Balloon Sinuplasty™ is a simple and quick endoscopic procedure that opens/reshapes the sinus passages without tissue removal. Balloon Sinuplasty™ offers a much quicker recovery with little bleeding. No packing is needed after surgery. The procedure can be done in the office and most patients can return to work the next day.
The concept of Balloon Sinuplasty™ comes from the field of cardiology where balloons have been used for years to gently dilate blocked heart arteries. In Sinuplasty, the goal is to open blocked sinus passages in order to allow the sinuse to drain freely. Because the balloon is dilating the tissue instead of removing it, the amount of trauma is greatly reduced.
