Balloon Sinuplasty

Balloon Sinuplasty | In-Office + No-Needles  

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.

Most insurance companies and Medicare cover Balloon Sinuplasty. To be certain of your sinus surgery insurance coverage, contact your insurance provider to find out your specific policy.

Benefits of Balloon Sinuplasty In-Office

  • Local Anesthesia
    Balloon Sinuplasty In-Office is an option for patients who decline or are ineligible for general anesthesia.

  • Fast Recovery
    While recovery time varies with each patient, most patients who undergo the in-office procedure can return to normal activities and work within 2 days.

  • Comfortable Surroundings
    Experience the procedure in the comfort of your physician’s office rather than a hospital operating room.

  • High Patient Satisfaction
    The majority of patients who had Balloon Sinuplasty In-Office would recommend the procedure to family and friends.

  • Potential for Significant Cost Savings
    Some eligible patients may have lower out-of-pocket costs if the procedure is performed in a lower cost of care setting, such as a physician’s office.

The Procedure

Step 1

A balloon catheter is inserted into the inflamed sinus.

Step 2

The balloon is inflated to expand the sinus opening. 

Step 3

Saline is sprayed into the inflamed sinus to flush out the pus and mucus.

Step 4

The system is removed, leaving the sinuses open. 

Please reload

When the sinus balloon is inflated, it restructures and widens the walls of the sinus passageway while maintaining the integrity of the sinus lining.

Published clinical data in the leading ENT journals shows that it is safe and effective: patients experienced no device-related adverse events and demonstrated statistically and clinically significant improvement in their sinusitis symptoms.
