Balloon Sinuplasty™ Benefits

The benefits of Balloon Sinuplasty™ technology for treating chronic sinusitis symptoms include:

  • Safe and Effective 
    While use of any surgical instrument involves some risk, clinical research has indicated the Balloon Sinuplasty™ system to be safe and effective in relieving symptoms of sinusitis.
  • Minimally Invasive 
    The technology uses small, soft, flexible devices that enter entirely through the nostrils. These devices gently open blocked sinus openings, and in many cases, without tissue or bone removal.
  • Reduced Bleeding 
    Because in many instances no tissue or bone is removed when using this technology, there may be reduced bleeding associated with the procedure.
  • Improved Recovery Time 
    While recovery time varies with each patient, many people can return to normal activities within 24 hours.
  • Does Not Limit Treatment Options 
    This technology is an endoscopic tool and may be used with other medical therapies or sinus surgery techniques. It does not limit future treatment options if you have progressive disease.

As with use of any surgical instrument, there are risks, and results may vary from patient to patient. Talk with your doctor about your specific condition to find out if the Balloon Sinuplasty™ system is right for you.
