SINUS INFECTION RELIEF

One of the more exciting developments in the treatment of sinus infection and sinus headaches is the balloon sinuplasty procedure.

Facial pain, pressure, congestion and feeling tired are the hallmarks of a sinus infection. One of the more exciting developments in the treatment of sinus infections and headaches is balloon sinuplasty. This is a minimally invasive procedure performed in our office under local anesthesia.

USING BALLOON SINUPLASTY FOR A SINUS INFECTION

Many people have heard of angioplasty, where a small catheter is placed into a clogged artery and a balloon used to dilate the vessel to allow increased bloodflow. Balloon sinuplasty uses the same concept: A small lighted wire is passed through the sinus opening and then a balloon inflated to create a larger opening, allowing the sinuses to function properly and avoid pain and sinus infection.
