A Breakthrough in Endoscopic Sinus Surgery
Balloon Sinuplasty (BSP) is a safe and effective procedure for chronic sinusitis patients who are not responding well to medications and are seeking relief from uncomfortable and painful sinusitis symptoms.
If you have been diagnosed with chronic sinusitis and are not responding well to medication, you may be a candidate for sinus surgery. There is now a less invasive option used by ENT doctors to treat chronic sinusitis patients that is clinically proven to be safe, effective and improve the quality of your life.
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 by the surgeons of Valley Ear, Nose & Throat Specialists in their McAllen and Harlingen offices. There is no need to go to an operating room or undergo general anesthesia.
SAFE & LESS INVASIVE
With Balloon Sinuplasty, there is no cutting of nasal bone or tissue. More than 250,000 patients suffering from chronic sinusitis have been treated by physicians using Balloon Sinuplasty technology.
Most patients report clinically meaningful improvement in sinus symptoms and quality of life through 2 years following surgery.
While recovery time varies with each patient, recovery is typically fast. In a study of in-office balloon dilation, most patients returned to work and normal activity within 2 days.
Available in the Office
Balloon Sinuplasty is now performed by some doctors in their office under local anesthesia.
