• No need for nasal packing

• Less painful

Procedure

 

Balloon Sinuplasty surgery involves the use of small balloons to re-open blocked sinuses.  A thin catheter (tube) attached to a balloon is inserted into your nostril passages. Once inserted, the balloon is smoothly moved into the blocked nasal areas and inflated to create a space. Finally, the balloon is deflated and removed, leaving an opened space in the nasal passage. This space allows for restored nasal drainage and functioning. A Balloon Sinuplasty is fast, accurate and offers quick relief. It is a method, which can be used with other treatments to provide the best surgical sinus treatment for your individual needs.
