Does Sinus Surgery Scare You?
It Might Not Be Your Only Treatment Option for Chronic or Recurrent Sinusitis!
Is breathing out of your nose a distant memory? Is the congestion in your sinuses making it difficult to make it through a day without pain?
If you answered yes to the questions above, it’s clear that the symptoms stemming from your chronic or recurrent sinusitis have affected your life. You want them to stop, but you don’t want to go through the pain and recovery process required with endoscopic sinus surgery, right?
What is Balloon Sinuplasty?
Balloon Sinuplasty is a minor procedure that opens blocked sinus pathways by placing and inflating a small balloon-like catheter into the obstructed area. The balloon is then removed, leaving the pathway expanded, allowing your sinuses to drain and breathe properly, putting an end to your sinusitis symptoms.
Why Choose This Alternative to Endoscopic Sinus Surgery?
Endoscopic sinus surgery is invasive and has a long recovery time, lasting weeks or months. The recovery process includes debridement, which requires a doctor to tear off scabs to prevent scar tissues from obstructing your airway.
Endoscopic Sinus Surgery, which is irreversible, also requires the permanent removal of bone and tissue from your face. While this procedure is commonly the treatment recommended by physicians, a minimally-invasive option may bring you similar results without the pain and long road to recovery.
