Balloon Sinuplasty

Balloon Sinuplasty can Provide Real, Instant, Lasting Relief!

If you are not responding to medications, you may be a candidate for the Balloon Sinuplasty procedure.

Is it safe?

Since 2005, more than 375,000 patients have been treated safely with Balloon Sinuplasty, a minimally-invasive in-office procedure.

How effective is the procedure?

Chronic sinusitis patients can expect instant relief and improved quality of life.

What should I expect as far as recovery time?

Since the Balloon Sinuplasty procedure is performed in-office with no cutting or nasal packing, many patients make a quick, speedy recovery and are able to return to normal activity within 48 hours.

How is balloon sinuplasty different from sinus surgery?

Unlike traditional sinus surgery, Balloon Sinuplasty requires no cutting and no removal of bone and tissue.

Balloon Sinuplasty (BSP) uses a small, flexible, balloon catheter to open up blocked sinus passageways and facilitate drainage of the mucus that builds up in patients suffering from chronic sinusitis symptoms.
