What is Balloon Sinuplasty?
Balloon sinuplasty is an innovative, minimally invasive technique ideal for treating sinusitis. A thin balloon is gently and precisely placed in the natural but narrowed sinus openings, dilated, and then removed. This reshapes the anatomy and restores proper drainage with no cutting and no removal of bone or tissue. Based on your preference and eligibility, this can be performed under local anesthesia with or without sedation. Balloon sinuplasty is less invasive than traditional sinus surgery and is proven to be safe and effective. In our office, in as little as 20 minutes, this innovative technique not only treats current sinus symptoms but also prevents future sinus issues. While Dr. Elangovan generally recommends this procedure for recurring and chronic sinusitis, patients may also find balloon sinuplasty relieves one or more of the following symptoms:
