What is Balloon Sinuplasty?
Sinusitis affects 37 million Americans each year, making it one of the most common health problems.
According to published studies, up to 60 percent of chronic sinusitis patients are not successfully treated with medication. Balloon Sinuplasty is a breakthrough procedure that relieves the pain and pressure associated with chronic sinusitis. I am now offering this procedure in my office under local anesthesia. Use of this proven technology in my office offers many benefits including:
- Quick Recovery Time
- Eliminates the need for general anesthesia
- Covered by most insurances with smaller co-pay when done in the Office than traditional sinus surgery
- Dr. Stein is the most experienced Balloon Sinuplasty physician in the area
A balloon catheter is inserted into the inflamed sinus
The balloon is inflated to expand the sinus opening
Saline is sprayed into the inflamed sinus to flush out the pus and mucus
The system is removed, leaving the sinuses open
