Balloon Sinus Dilation

Sinus infections make you feel miserable!

Still fighting that persistent headache?  Turning into a mouth breather because of sinus congestion?  Just tired of dealing with it all?

If you've tried all the usual medications, antibiotics and nasal sprays but just can't get rid of your chronic sinus infections, you now have an alternative that really works.  Balloon sinus dilation (balloon sinuplasty) is a simple office procedure that can significantly improve sinus infection symptoms. It's quick and can give you the long-lasting relief you've been wanting! 1, 2, 3, 4

How Does Balloon Sinus Dilation Work?

The procedure:

After our ENT specialists have identified the area of sinus blockage, they will insert a tiny balloon on a flexible catheter into the correct position.  The balloon will be inflated briefly to open the sinus passageway.  Once the blocked area has been reshaped, the balloon will be deflated and removed.

The result:

After dilation the passageway remains open, restoring airflow, drainage and normal sinus function. Many patients experience immediate relief.

After having the balloon dilation procedure, Vernon found his sinuses and symptoms have improved significantly.  He considers the procedure a “minor inconvenience” with a major step up in lifestyle quality.

Please note: every patient is unique, and your results may vary.
