Balloon Sinuplasty

Balloon Sinuplasty

Balloon sinuplasty is a minimally invasive treatment for sinusitis, also called chronic rhino-sinusitis (CRS).

A constantly runny nose or blocked nose where you can barely breathe and pain in the face, are some of the common symptoms faced by people suffering from sinusitis. Symptoms of most people may resolve with antibiotics but at times a procedure of balloon sinuplasty is the way to go for chronic indications when medical therapy has not provided adequate relief. A CT scan determines if balloon sinuplasty is the appropriate treatment for your condition. Balloon Sinuplasty is a safe and minimally invasive procedure. There are no implants and it does not leave any visible scarring or bruising. It is performed entirely through the nostrils. Most patients can go home the same day.
