Balloon Sinuplasty safely and effectively dilates sinus openings that results in relief from sinus symptoms. This procedure has three easy steps: the device is inserted into the blocked sinus, the balloon inflates and expands the sinus opening, and then it is removed, leaving the sinus cavity open. Besides being a simple and safe procedure, here are some top benefits of Balloon Sinuplasty.
- Less pain, trauma, and side effects
Since this is a non-surgical procedure, Balloon Sinuplasty is less painful and causes less trauma to the sinuses compared to a traditional sinus surgery. Along with this benefit, Balloon Sinuplasty has no post-surgical swelling or bruising, meaning a minimal recovery time and no incisions required.
- Conducted through an in-office procedure
A Balloon Sinuplasty can be performed comfortably without general anesthesia, in the familiar in-office environment. The entire procedure takes less than an hour, and patients usually return to their regular daily activities within two days.
- Potentially lower out-of-pocket costs
In cases where patients have in-office procedures, this could be lower cost overall. Since it isn’t necessary to pay for general anesthesia and outpatient services, like with traditional sinus surgery, it is not only an effective treatment but cost-effective as well.
- The relieving benefits
Of course, one of the top benefits of Balloon Sinuplasty is the relief it provides sinus sufferers, in such a short amount of time. Patients suffering from chronic sinusitis see relief in pressure, pain, congestion and fatigue after their procedure. Essentially, Balloon Sinuplasty can completely change a patient’s life.
