Balloon Sinuplasty

Balloon Sinuplasty

More than 30 million Americans suffer from Sinusitis, a chronic breathing problem that can greatly interfere with quality of life.

Sinuses are air-filled pockets behind the facial bones surrounding the nose. Each sinus has natural openings through which mucus drains. When these sinus openings become blocked, you suffer from sinusitis.

Balloon Sinuplasty can correct sinusitis with a minimally invasive, in-office procedure. With fast results, quick healing and full recovery typically in less than two days, Balloon Sinuplasty eliminates the trauma and downtime of traditional sinus surgery.
