Relief From 
Sinusitis

Balloon Sinuplasty

With nearly 25 million cases per year, Sinusitis is a fairly common condition. Sinusitis occurs when there is inflammation of the paranasal sinuses, and can be caused by infections, allergies and/or autoimmunity issues.

Some common symptoms of sinusitis are headaches, facial pain, sinus pain, nasal discharge, toothache, eye infections, and ear congestion

How Does It Work?

Balloon Sinuplasty, or Balloon Sinus Dilation, is a minimally invasive option that can be performed by one of our doctors right here in our Boca Raton office. The goal of office Balloon Sinuplasty is to reshape anatomy to expand sinus pathways and restore drainage. The procedure utilizes small balloons placed in key places in the nose and sinus, which are then dilated to expand the sinus pathways. It may be an effective, lasting option for some patients whose symptoms do not resolve with medication.

Balloon sinuplasty is accepted as a minimally invasive treatment option when compared with a traditional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery where tissue is removed.

The benefits of Balloon Sinuplasty include:

  • Delivers instant, lasting relief
  • Convenient, comfortable office procedure
  • Quick recovery—most patients return to normal activity in 24 hours
  • May reduce healthcare costs
