Balloon Sinuplasty - A Revolutionary Breakthrough in Sinusitis Treatment
Learn How it Can Help You
If you have been diagnosed with chronic sinusitis and are not responding well to medication, or if you have recurrent acute rhinosinusitis, you may be a candidate for sinus surgery. There is now a proven, less invasive technology used by ENT doctors to treat patients with chronic and recurrent acute sinusitis.
With Balloon Sinuplasty, ENT doctors open inflamed sinuses in the same way that heart surgeons open up blocked arteries during balloon angioplasty. The procedure is less invasive than traditional sinus surgery, and effective at relieving symptoms of chronic sinusitis. Balloon Sinuplasty allows patients to return to normal activities quickly. Unlike conventional sinus surgery, it does not include removal of bone or tissue from the nose. And, Balloon Sinuplasty is now offered in-office under local anesthesia, so that there is no need to go to an operating room or undergo general anesthesia.
To-date this technology has helped more than 420,000 patients by dilating more than 1.1 million sinus passageways. Numerous studies and information published in leading Ear, Nose, and Throat (ENT) medical journals shows that the technology is safe and effective at providing what Pinehurst’s patients need most - relief from their symptoms and an improved quality of life. No numbing injections required!
