If you suffer from poor sinus drainage, you already know that antibiotics, decongestants, and steroids can do only so much. Balloon Sinuplasty is a simple office procedure that gently expands the natural sinus openings to fix underlying drainage problems.
Until recently, sufferers of chronic or recurrent sinusitis were limited to two treatment options: medication therapy or aggressive sinus surgery. Fortunately, advances in medical science have opened new doors. Now there’s a treatment that can be performed in our office without the need for cutting or tissue removal.
Balloon sinuplasty is a minimally invasive office procedure, performed under local anesthesia, that delivers immediate and long-lasting relief. Dr. DiPasquale will reshape your sinus pathways by inflating small balloons in key places in the nose and sinuses, restoring drainage.
What is chronic sinusitis and can Balloon Sinuplasty help?
Chronic sinusitis is a widespread condition affecting 37 million Americans. This inflammation of the sinuses occurs when the sinus opening becomes blocked, preventing mucus from draining properly. It causes cold-like symptoms that include congestion, runny nose, sore throat, facial pain and swelling, loss of smell or taste, bad breath, fatigue, and headache. It is most often caused by viral infections, but can also occur as a result of nasal polyps, a deviated septum or head trauma. Medical solutions work for some, but others continue to suffer despite numerous attempts using a variety of treatments. Balloon Sinuplasty may be the answer.
