The most important factor in recommending this groundbreaking procedure is proper patient selection. Some patients suffer from sinus problems that are too severe to be treated effectively by a balloon sinuplasty. Patients with nasal polyps or a deviated septum, for example, would not experience lasting relief with the procedure alone. These patients, and some others, are better candidates for endoscopic sinus surgery.
The only way for patients to know if they would be a good candidate for balloon sinuplasty is to consult with an experienced, board-certified sinus surgeon who can assess their symptoms and determine the right procedure for them.
During the procedure, one of our sinus surgeons will use a small camera, called an endoscope, to look inside a patient’s nostrils. They use the small camera to guide the balloon through the sinuses, gently dilating the natural drainage pathways. This procedure does not cause any cuts, incisions or changes in outward appearance. It also requires almost no downtime and is highly effective.
The procedure is performed as an outpatient, in-office procedure. Our surgeons complete the procedure under IV sedation so that the treatment can be pain-free and completely effective. This also ensures that the procedure can be done more quickly, allowing for less pain for the patient.
