The benefits of balloon sinuplasty

When sinusitis isn’t responded to medications, traditional surgery, such as Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery (FESS), can be the only way to get the relief you need. This is a minimally invasive procedure with no tissue or bone removal and little or no bleeding, bruising, swelling, and risk of infection.

In the office with local anesthesia, Dr. Cohen will numb your nose with topical ointment and cotton-soaked numbing meds before inserting a balloon catheter into the sinus cavity through your nostril. The balloon will gently expand to unblock your sinuses and then be deflated before being removed.

After the treatment, you can expect to have better breathing and clear passageways within a day or two. Most patients can return to work or school the next day and have normal activities by the third day.

A saline spray may be used to flush your sinuses and help push out the blockage. In addition, the balloon may be re-inflated if necessary.

The procedure is performed comfortably in our office and has an extremely short recovery time with no pain, swelling, bruising or bleeding. It also provides long-lasting relief and has been proven to be effective in 90% of all cases. It has been FDA approved since 2005 and is helping millions of people. With this long-term solution, you will finally have the life you want again! So, if you’ve been struggling with chronic sinusitis or other nasal conditions and don’t want to live in constant pain, schedule an appointment today.
