What is Balloon Sinuplasty?
Balloon Sinuplasty is a safe and effective sinus procedure for chronic sinusitis patients seeking relief from uncomfortable sinus pain symptoms.
Opening blocked sinus passageways facilitates drainage of the mucus that builds up and results in pain. When the sinus balloon is inflated it restructures and widens the walls of the sinus passageway, while maintaining the integrity of the sinus lining.
To-date this technology has helped more than 420,000 patients by dilating more than 1.1 million sinus passageways. Numerous studies and information published in leading Ear, Nose, and Throat (ENT) medical journals shows that the technology is safe and effective at providing what Fayetteville ENT’s patients need most – relief from their symptoms and an improved quality of life. No numbing injections required!
