Balloon Sinuplasty

A minimally invasive procedure allowing most patients to return to their normal activities the next day.  No bone or tissue removal necessary, and the procedure can be done in-office.

Balloon Sinuplasty

What is Balloon Sinuplasty?

Unlike traditional sinus surgery, Balloon Sinuplasty requires no cutting and no removal of bone and tissue.
Balloon Sinuplasty (BSP) uses a small, flexible, balloon catheter to open up blocked sinus passageways and facilitate drainage of the mucus that builds up in patients suffering from chronic sinus symptoms.
Balloon Sinuplasty serves as a minimally invasive surgical treatment option to traditional sinus surgery.

Balloon Sinuplasty has been extensively studied and shown to be safe and effective. Published clinical data in the leading ENT journals shows that it is safe and effective: patients experienced no serious adverse events and demonstrated statistically and clinically significant improvement in their sinusitis symptoms.

The Balloon Sinuplasty procedure can be performed in the operating room under general anesthesia and in the office under local anesthesia for select patients.

Step 1

A balloon catheter is inserted into the inflamed sinus.

Step 2

The balloon is inflated to expand the sinus opening.

Step 3

Saline is sprayed into the inflamed sinus to flush out the pus and mucus.

Step 4

The system is removed, leaving the sinuses open.

When the sinus balloon is inflated, it restructures and widens the walls of the sinus passageway while maintaining the integrity of the sinus lining.
