Balloon Sinuplasty
Near Alabaster, AL

Should you get Balloon Sinuplasty?

Sinus pressure, pain, and headaches are often the sign of inflamed sinus passages. These symptoms, if severe enough, can lead to chronic sinusitis. This build-up of fluid in the nasal passages results in severe pain and pressure around the nose and head, sometimes making it impossible to function in your daily activities. Chronic sinusitis is often difficult to manage and requires you to take various types of medication. In even more severe cases, chronic sinusitis can require surgery for you to have lasting relief.

How does it work?

** Balloon sinuplasty offers a less invasive alternative to traditional sinus surgery. Contact our ENT to see if you are a good candidate for balloon sinuplasty.

Balloon Sinuplasty:

Dr. Robertson, ENT specialist, located just a short drive from Alabaster, Alabama, uses a less invasive treatment for chronic sinusitis called balloon sinuplasty. Traditional sinus surgeries require doctors to open the nasal cavity by removing bone and tissue. Balloon Sinuplasty offers patients a much easier, faster, and less invasive treatment option than surgically opening the nasal cavity.
