Sinus Surgery
Case Study #1

IN-OFFICE BALLOON SINUPLASTY

Balloon sinuplasty is an FDA-approved advanced treatment option to relieve the symptoms of chronic sinusitis. This minimally invasive procedure uses a thin, flexible balloon catheter that is placed in the nose and gradually inflated to relieve blockages in the nasal passage by gently restructuring the bones in the nose. It restores normal sinus function while maintaining the lining of the sinus and keeps post-operative pain and bleeding at a minimum.

CASE STUDY #1

IN-OFFICE BALLOON SINUPLASTY IN PANSINUSITIS

Mrs A presented to us with 3-4 months of severe sinus problems and cough with stuffy nose and sinus pressure despite a prolonged course of antibiotics. She had an In-Office Balloon Sinuplasty of all six sinuses performed with ethmoid surgery under local anesthesia and some oral sedation. In the previous years this procedure would have been performed in the hospital under general anesthesia.
