Another sinus infection, another trip to the doctor, lost work time, lost sick leave, copay and medicine costs. Having a sinus infection is no small issue. Especially when they keep recurring. If you are having several sinus infections each year, you may be a good candidate for balloon sinuplasty to resolve this issue.
There used to be no real option to break this cycle except surgery and that entailed too much downtime, risk, and discomfort.
Balloon sinuplasty is a procedure performed using a high definition nasal endoscope inside the nostril. A specialized sinus balloon is placed in to the natural sinus outflow tract and confirmed to be in the correct location using an LED light or computer navigation. The balloon is then inflated to dilate and expand this natural sinus outflow tract. This makes it go from closed to open enabling the sinus to drain and become healthy. The balloon does not stay in the sinus or the nose. It is removed after the dilation. The dilation stays open without the need for any splint or stent. The results have been very impressive with a 98% success rate long term in resolving sinus issues.
Manasquan, NJ & Toms River, NJ Balloon Sinuplasty Treatment
First off, balloon sinuplasty can only be performed by a Board Certified ENT doctor. There are others offering a “balloon assisted” nasal procedure as part of a chiropractic treatment. This is not balloon sinuplasty. We needed a better answer. We needed a non-surgical way to open blocked sinus outflow tracts and break the cycle of recurring sinus infections.
The advanced balloon sinuplasty we perform in our office, under the comfort and safety of IV sedation, has been proven in clinical studies to dramatically reduce the frequency, severity, and duration of sinus infections. This non-surgical procedure takes just minutes and the patient is back to work the next day.
