Balloon Sinuplasty

Balloon Sinuplasty: The In-Office Procedure for Your Chronic Sinus Pain

If you've been suffering from sinus pain that impacts your life more often than it isn't, you're not alone. If you have yet to find a solution for your sinus pain that works, again, you are not alone. People in the U.S. spend millions on short-term sinus treatments that don't always provide the relief that's promised.

The good news is that there is a better solution. It's called balloon sinuplasty, and it's a minimally invasive procedure that can help you finally get long-term relief from your chronic sinus pain.

I'm tired of living life around sinus pain  

Balloon Sinuplasty works by treating the root problem rather than the symptoms.

Most sinus pain treatments focus on managing the symptoms rather than the root cause, but that isn't enough for sufferers of chronic sinus pain. Balloon Sinuplasty is a real solution for chronic sufferers because it treats the cause, narrow and inflamed sinus passages.

How does Balloon Sinuplasty work?

Balloon Sinuplasty is a minimally invasive procedure that is done in the comfort of your doctor's office. It works by gently opening your sinuses so the mucus and infection that's causing your chronic sinus pain can drain. Once your sinuses are opened, you should see immediate and long-term results.

During Balloon Sinuplasty, a small balloon catheter is inserted into the impacted nasal passage. It is then inflated to gently push open and widen the passage. It is then removed, and the infection is cleaned out. You should be able to breathe better immediately after the procedure.

What can I expect during Balloon Sinuplasty recovery time?

Balloon Sinuplasty has been FDA approved since 2005, and over 85% of patients report experiencing improved sinus pain symptoms up to several years later.1 Balloon Sinuplasty also has an excellent track record of patients getting back to normal activities quickly because of its 24-48 recovery period. In addition, Balloon Sinuplasty can help you experience:

  • Restful sleep 
  • Increased stamina and less fatigue
  • A return to high levels of productivity

Balloon Sinuplasty helps you save in more than one way.

Most people put off having sinus surgery because of the costs and risks associated, but with Balloon Sinuplasty, you won't have to worry. It's safe, effective, and doesn't require anesthesia. Balloon Sinuplasty:

  • Saves you money - With Balloon Sinuplasty, you will save money on hospital and anesthesia costs. The long-term relief it provides will also save money on sinus pain medications and frequent trips to the doctor.
  • Saves you time - Balloon Sinuplasty is a quick procedure with a short recovery time. You won’t have to worry about a lengthy hospital stay, and you can get back to normal activities quickly.
  • Saves you frustration - The success rate of Balloon Sinuplasty is over 95%, so after the procedure, you're more than likely to feel immediate, lasting relief. It's time to say goodbye to chronic sinus pain and treatments that don't work.

Before we can properly treat your sinus symptoms...

Before we can recommend this procedure to properly treat your sinusitis and be able to give you a clear idea of what to expect after Balloon Sinuplasty...

...we need to understand the current state of your body. A detailed exam is the first step that allows us to understand the severity of your sinusitis symptoms and your expectations of treatment.

During your initial visit, we may also use our office CT scanner and sinus endoscopy to examine your sinuses to make a proper diagnosis. This allows us to take a comprehensive look at your specific condition, and be able to prepare our patients for the Balloon Sinuplasty before and after experience.

As a patient of North Texas Sinus Center, you will be treated with care as we will consider all aspects of your health and condition before selecting the treatment. We will also develop a plan that aligns with your health goals.

When medications and sinus infection remedies fail to meet your long-term expectations, we recommend sinusitis treatment plans that may include office procedures or surgeries performed in an operating room.

Sinus treatment plans are ineffective without tracking the results. Follow up office visits is not our way of making more money, it is essential to know if the treatment plan is meeting your expectations or if we need to revise the treatment plan.
