Treatment options to help you feel better:
Sinusitis medications can reduce swelling in the nose and provide relief. Combinations of these often need to be taken regularly in order to keep the sinus openings from swelling closed. They include: antihistamines, nasal steroid sprays, decongestants (OTC), mucus thinners, nasal irrigations, topical nose sprays, oral steroid pills and antibiotics (occasionally)
Sinus rinses can temporarily improve symptoms and offer short term relief without the use of medications. Rinses thin out mucus and help flush it from the nasal passages.
Performed in-office, this procedure is non-invasive and works by dilating any of the three larger sinus passages using a tiny balloon to open blocked sinus ducts.
A minimally invasive technique, this is an image guided sinus surgery that enlarges the sinus openings to improve drainage from the sinuses into the nose.
Balloon Sinuplasty: A Non-Invasive, Safe Procedure
While the doctors at Advanced ENT and Allergy Center are trained all the most effective options for treating sinus issues, they usually recommend Balloon Sinuplasty as the safest and most effective sinus treatment. Balloon Sinuplasty gives patients the relief they want with a quick recovery time. The doctors at Advanced ENT and Allergy Center have performed hundreds of successful Balloon Sinuplasty procedures that have changed patients’ lives.
Treatment Combinations That Change Lives
One of our doctors, Dr. Menachof, was one of the first surgeons in the United States trained in endoscopic sinus surgery and has performed over 10,000 successful sinus surgeries in his career. By evaluating your symptoms, history, and long-term goals, he will work with you to create a treatment plan. This often includes medication, minimally-invasive office procedures, and sometimes surgical intervention.
Frequently Asked Sinus Balloon Sinuplasty Questions
Clinical research confirms that Balloon Sinuplasty success rate is high – effectively restructuring the sinus openings to alleviate symptoms. More than 535,000 patients suffering from chronic sinusitis symptoms have been treated by ENT doctors using this procedure (Acclarent Procedural Data Collected on March 7, 2017).
Unlike traditional sinus surgeries, balloon sinuplasty does not involve the cutting of nasal bone or tissue – reducing the risk of damage and scarring. The balloon sinuplasty procedure is usually done in a doctor’s office under local anesthesia. It does not require uncomfortable packing of the nose following surgery.
The cost of the procedure depends on your insurance coverage. We encourage you to speak with your insurance company about this treatment.
Balloon sinuplasty recovery is typically fast, but timing can vary. Most patients can return to work and normal activity within 3 days.
There are few balloon sinuplasty risks but complications can occur, including tissue and mucosal trauma, infection, and in extremely rare instances, optic injury. Please talk with us about potential balloon sinuplasty side effects.
