Balloon Sinuplasty: Relieve Your Sinus Pain
Balloon Sinuplasty is a non-invasive procedure used to relieve sinus pain and symptoms of chronic sinusitis or sinus infections. This procedure was approved in 2005 by the FDA. It is increasingly performed by ENT physicians in their office under local anesthesia.
Balloon Sinuplasty does not involve any cutting or removal of bones, unlike most sinus procedures. It uses a small, flexible balloon catheter to open blocked sinus passageways and expedite drainage of the fluid that has built up.
