Advanced Sinus Treatment
You can find relief from chronic sinusitis through balloon sinuplasty, a minimally invasive procedure offered by the otolaryngology (ENT) specialists at Cypress Fairbanks Medical Center Hospital.
Benefits of Balloon Sinuplasty:
- The procedure is performed on an outpatient basis, allowing you to return to normal activity in about one day
- This procedure can help to relieve headaches, congestion, facial pain and fatigue caused by the inflamed sinus passages from sinusitis.
How Balloon Sinuplasty Works
This sinus treatment helps to clear sinuses and allow you to breathe easier by creating a wider opening in a narrowed or blocked sinus passageway. During the procedure, a flexible catheter, or small tube, is inserted into the affected sinus passageway and slowly inflated. The catheter is later removed, having opened the passageway and restructured flexible sinus bones so mucus can flow normally.
