Balloon Sinuplasty for Sinusitis Relief
Finally, you can have relief from chronic sinusitis pain and pressure. Balloon sinuplasty, an innovative technique that involves no cutting or nasal packing, is becoming the go-to technique used by ENTs in Birmingham and across the country. For this procedure, your ENT will place a small balloon catheter at the sinus opening and gently inflate the balloon, leading to a widening and opening of the sinus passageway.
BENEFITS OF BALLOON SINUPLASTY:
- No need for general anesthesia
- Usually done in-office rather than a hospital setting
- No bone or tissue removal, as is seen with traditional sinus surgery
- Great option for patients who decline or are ineligible for traditional sinus surgery
- Quick recovery
