Stop Suffering with Sinus Pain and Pressure

Balloon Sinuplasty is a Modern Alternative to Traditional Sinus Surgery

Sick and Tired of Feeling Exhausted Because of Your Sinuses?

Can’t breathe freely, can’t shake that cold, never feel rested, always have a headache? If your symptoms never get better, or clear up and then return, even though you’ve tried every over-the counter therapy you can think of and even had your doctor prescribe antibiotics, chronic sinusitis could be your problem.

The good news?  There is now a proven, convenient, in-office procedure that could solve that problem.  It's called Balloon Sinuplasty (balloon sinus dilation).  It takes less than an hour, involves no cutting, and lets you resume normal activities quickly. 1,2,3,4

How Does Balloon Sinuplasty Work?

Balloon Sinuplasty (balloon sinus dilation) is an advanced, but simple, alternative to traditional sinus surgery. It is performed under local anesthesia in the office using techniques developed for cardiologists to clear blocked blood vessels.  Balloon Sinuplasty involves no cutting, no packing with gauze, and has a quick recovery time.

The Balloon Sinuplasty Procedure

A tiny balloon catheter is inserted into the sinus opening and inflated to expand the passageway.  Normal sinus airflow and drainage are restored when the balloon is deflated and removed.  The procedure typically lasts about an hour, and most patients resume normal activities within 24-48 hours.1, 2
