Balloon Sinuplasty (Sinus Dilation)

Safe, Effective, and Long-Lasting Relief from Sinus Pain

Are you suffering from frequent or severe sinus infections? Are you frustrated by the constant struggle to breathe free? Have you given up hope that safe, effective, and affordable solutions can give you lasting relief? You don’t have to live with the suffering. There is a modern minimally-invasive solution that will give you the relief that you need without the cost and risk of surgery.

Discover what balloon sinuplasty can do for you.

How Does Balloon Sinuplasty Work?

In the past, traditional treatments involved one of two primary options:

  1. Treat the symptoms with medication: This often delivers temporary relief, but never addresses the underlying problem.
  2. Traditional Sinus Surgery: Fully invasive surgical solutions effectively address underlying issues. However, they involve hospitalization, long recoveries, and the permanent removal of bone and tissue.

Starting in 2005, an advanced modern solution became available. Balloon sinuplasty quickly demonstrated outstanding results with minimal risk and discomfort. Unlike medications, this FDA cleared procedure directly addresses the underlying cause of infection. Unlike traditional surgery, this solution could be comfortably performed in the doctor’s office without the need for hospitalization or permanent removal of bone and tissue.

Since 2005, more than a half million patients have received lasting relief with an astounding balloon sinuplasty success rate of 95%. Balloon sinuplasty patient reviews from across the country and around the world have shown the exceptional life-changing benefits of this technological advancement in sinus infection treatment.

Sinuplasty is a safe and simple procedure that involves three primary steps:
Locate - Balloon Sinuplasty procedure
A tiny catheter is inserted into the sinus cavity and is precisely placed in the area of the sinus blockage.
Dilate & Restore - Balloon Sinuplasty procedure
A balloon located in the catheter is gently inflated to open up the sinus blockage.
Relieve - Balloon Sinuplasty procedure
The catheter is removed. Once the blockage is open, the natural process of sinus drainage is restored.

Balloon sinuplasty risks are minimal since there is no cutting or removing of tissue. Since this procedure is done from the comfort and convenience of the office, there are no additional risks from hospital infection or anesthesia reaction. Balloon sinuplasty recovery time is quick and patients can return to normal daily activities shortly after treatment.

If you are suffering from chronic sinus infections, you can improve your quality of life for years to come with balloon sinuplasty.

The Benefits of Balloon Dilation

Balloon sinus dilation (balloon sinuplasty) is the most effective way to achieve long-term sinus infection relief. This procedure restores the body’s natural flow of mucus and allows the sinuses to do what they were designed to do. Once the sinuses are opened and working naturally, you will be able to breathe freely, speak and sing clearly, and fight off the colds and viruses that the sinuses are designed to protect from. In addition, sinuplasty provides exceptional benefits when compared to other treatment options.

Addresses the Root Cause

Other treatment options, such as medication, work to mask symptoms and provide temporary relief. Balloon sinus dilation gets to the root cause of the sinus infection which is the blocked sinus passage. The painful symptoms that accompany a sinus infection are a direct result of the sinus blockage and once the blockage is opened then long-term symptom relief is possible. With sinuplasty, you can stop fighting symptoms and have victory over the root cause.

Unlike medications, sinuplasty gives lasting results which lead to lower health care costs over time. Sinuplasty will deliver results and save you money over time.
