BALLOON SINUPLASTY FOR CHRONIC SINUSITUS
MINIMALLY INVASIVE OFFICE PROCEDURE
IN the past few years, a new minimally invasive treatment for chronic sinusitis sufferers has been introduced and has proven to be safe, effective and has been embraced by many patients. As you know, many patients are afraid of undergoing invasive sinus surgery including functional endoscopic sinus surgeries and sometime serious health problems prevent routine surgical intervention for sinus problems.
Balloon sinuplasty is a minimally invasive sinus surgery and does not involve removing any tissue or any long-term side effects.
Most of the patients we have treated so far have benefited significantly and symptom improvement has been incredible.
Medical therapy such as antibiotics, topical nasal steroids is often successful at reducing mucosal swelling and relieving ostial obstruction.
However, for at least 20-30% of the patients, medical therapy is not adequate and BALLOON SINUS DILATATION is their next step in finding relief.
Many patients continue to receive antibiotic treatment and as you know in this day and age, significant bacterial resistance has evolved.
WE have performed minimally invasive balloon sinuplasty for chronic sinus sufferers for the last many years and had excellent results.
If you are one of the patients who continue to get antibiotic treatment and get some relief for a few weeks and come back with headaches, postnasal drip, sinus infections, ear pain, pressure, dizziness and multitude of other symptoms and do not really get complete resolution donot hesitate to call us at 410-789-2800 for further information.
Balloon sinuplasty is a FDA approved minimally invasive procedure, which is done on the same basis as cardiac angioplasty. The balloon sinuplasty is minimally invasive.
It is safe and effective.
There is minimal bleeding and the recovery is fast and almost the same day.
The patient has minimal complications and had excellent relief of sinusitus and headaches.
FOR frontal sinusitus and headache this is the most effective and least invasive procedure
IN a stable and healthy patient, this procedure can be done in the office under local anesthesia and the patients who are medically unstable, this procedure can be done in the hospital or amblatory surgery center settings. The long-term outcome data proves that balloon sinuplasty has a lower rate of revision when compared to previous traditional functional endoscopic sinus surgery and the complication rate is minimal and the patient can return to normal activity within 24 hours.
Patients who continue to keep coming back with facial pain, pressure, congestion, fullness, ear pain, ear pressure, dizziness, ringing, nasal obstruction, difficulty breathing, blockage of the nose, discolored postnasal drip and profuse postnasal drip with some halitosis, nasal discharge and purulence, loss of smell and taste, headaches, fatigue, fever, dental pain, halitosis are some of the symptoms, which can be treated with this minimally invasive sinus procedure, which is done mostly under local anesthesia and can be accomplished in the office setting.
