A Breakthrough in Endoscopic Sinus Surgery
Balloon Sinuplasty (BSP) is a safe and effective procedure for chronic sinusitis patients who are not responding well to medications and are seeking relief from uncomfortable and painful sinusitis symptoms.
If you have been diagnosed with chronic sinusitis and are not responding well to medication, you may be a candidate for sinus surgery. ENT doctors now use a less invasive option to treat chronic sinusitis patients that are clinically proven to be safe, effective, and improve the quality of your life.
With Balloon Sinuplasty, ENT doctors open inflamed sinuses as heart surgeons open up blocked arteries during balloon angioplasty. The procedure is less invasive than traditional sinus surgery and effective at relieving symptoms of chronic sinusitis. Balloon Sinuplasty allows patients to return to normal activities quickly. Unlike conventional sinus surgery, it does not include the removal of bone or tissue from the nose. And Balloon Sinuplasty is now offered by Valley Ear, Nose & Throat Specialists surgeons in their McAllen and Harlingen offices. There is no need to go to an operating room or undergo general anesthesia.
SAFE & LESS INVASIVE
With Balloon Sinuplasty, there is no cutting of nasal bone or tissue. More than 250,000 patients suffering from chronic sinusitis have been treated by physicians using Balloon Sinuplasty technology.
Most patients report clinically meaningful improvement in sinus symptoms and quality of life through the two years following surgery.
While recovery time varies with each patient, recovery is typically fast. In a study of in-office balloon dilation, most patients returned to work and regular activity within 2 days.
Available in the Office
Some doctors now perform Balloon Sinuplasty in their offices under local anesthesia.
