Chronic sinusitis is a medical condition that affects about 14% of the US population. This condition can be caused by a bacterial infection or growths (polyps) in the nasal passageway, which leads to swelling of the sinuses. This condition becomes chronic when symptoms last for more than 3 months despite medications. This common condition, interferes with the way nasal mucous drains, causing a backup of fluid, leading one
to feel stuffy and congested with painful sinus pressure points.
Balloon sinuplasty is a procedure that ENT surgeons use for patients with chronic sinus conditions (blocked sinuses). This quick procedure can be done painlessly in the office with no need for general anesthesia. It is minimally invasive and does not require any scar or cuts on the nose itself. During this procedure, the surgeon puts in a small balloon through the nose to help dilate the sinuses and clear the blockage. This helps relieve the
pressure and allows for smoother flow of nasal secretions. Balloon sinuplasty is an excellent choice for patients with chronic sinusitis and is often very successful in giving them a better quality of life.
