If you experience chronic sinusitis symptoms such as facial pain or pressure, recurrent sinus infections, or headaches, you may be a candidate for Balloon Sinuplasty™.
Balloon Sinuplasty™ is a minimally invasive surgical option used to treat sinusitis and is offered at Dallas ENT Group, of this procedure include less postoperative pain and recovery time.
How Does it Work?
Balloon Sinuplasty™ devices are flexible instruments that allow the surgeon to restore normal drainage and function while preserving your natural anatomy. The technology uses balloon dilation to gently open your sinus passages with minimal injury. This endoscopic, catheter-based procedure is used to open blocked sinuses, similar to how cardiac surgeons use balloons during an angioplasty to open blocked coronary arteries.
Treatment & Recovery
Many patients undergo the procedure on a Friday and return to work or normal activities just a couple of days later. They experience minimal discomfort yet are on the path to relief of their symptoms. As with any medical procedure, recovery time can vary with each individual and depends on the nature of the condition.
