In the past there were not many options for patients who were suffering from chronic sinusitis but not responding to the prescribed medication. With the Balloon Sinuplasty (BSP) procedure there is now a way to treat blocked sinuses in-office with a sinus surgery that does not require the removal of any bone or tissue or any cutting.
The procedure involves a guide catheter being inserted through the nostril to the sinus opening where a balloon catheter will be guided into the sinus to slowly expand the blocked opening. Your trusted ENT doctor can perform Balloon Sinuplasty under local anesthesia so that you will not have to worry about making an appointment at the hospital. You will not need to worry about significant bruising or swelling and there is a low recovery time of 24 hours, allowing you to return to your life with minimal inconvenience.
If you have been suffering from chronic sinusitis you may be a candidate for Balloon Sinuplasty. Any of the qualified doctors at Valley ENT would be more than happy to meet with you and determine whether or not the surgery is in your best interest and provide you with more information about Balloon Sinuplasty.
