What is Balloon Sinuplasty?
Balloon Sinuplasty (BSP) is a safe and effective procedure for sinusitis patients who are not responding well to medications and have either had a sinus infection for more than 12 weeks or have 4 or more sinus infections each year. These patients are seeking relief from uncomfortable and painful sinusitis symptoms.
With Balloon Sinuplasty, ENT doctors open inflamed sinuses in the same way that heart surgeons open up blocked arteries during balloon angioplasty. The procedure is less invasive than traditional sinus surgery, and effective at relieving symptoms of chronic sinusitis. Balloon Sinuplasty allows patients to return to normal activities quickly. Unlike conventional sinus surgery, this innovative procedure does not include cutting to remove bone or tissue from the nose.
The benefits of Balloon Sinuplasty include:
Since 2005, more than 375,000 patients have been treated safely with Balloon Sinuplasty.
