What You Need To Know About Balloon Sinuplasty

Sinus problems affect many millions of people in this country every year. If you are one of them, you have probably tried over-the-counter sinus medications, only to find your sinus issues returning. Balloon sinuplasty can clear blocked sinuses, so you can breathe better.

Balloon sinuplasty is an outpatient procedure performed under general anesthesia. During the procedure, a wire catheter is inserted through your nostril and guided up into your sinuses. The catheter contains a tiny balloon at one end. When a sinus blockage is reached, the balloon is inflated. The inflated balloon causes your sinus passages to gently open. The balloon is then deflated, and the catheter is removed.

You should consider balloon sinuplasty if you have:

  • Chronic nasal or sinus problems
  • Stubborn sinus infections that don’t respond to medications
  • Chronic headaches around your eyes
  • Difficulty breathing through your nose
  • Chronic bad breath or bad taste in your mouth

There are many important benefits to having balloon sinuplasty, compared to conventional sinus surgery. Consider that balloon sinuplasty is:

  • A minimally invasive procedure, because there are no incisions or removal of bone and tissue
  • A much less painful treatment, with less swelling and no tissue damage
  • A procedure with less risk of infection and minimal downtime
