Balloon Sinus Dilation is a safe and effective in-office procedure performed to provide relief for patients suffering from chronic sinusitis pain. The Balloon Sinus Dilation procedure is performed without any cutting or incisions of the tissue or bone. Otolaryngologists have used this technique to treat over 380,000 patients suffering from chronic sinusitis. Recovery from Balloon Sinus Dilation can vary from patient to patient, but usually is quite fast with most patients able to resume their work and normal daily activities within 2 days from the procedure.
This procedure is performed using only topical anesthetic and oral sedation–so no general anesthesia. Numbing agents and nasal decongestants are also used. This procedure has a high satisfaction rating among patients.
