Have you suffered from sinus problems and aren’t sure where to go next? Are allergy symptoms taking over your life?
If the answer to both of those questions is, “Yes,” you could be the perfect candidate for balloon sinuplasty. This procedure can greatly improve your quality of life by helping you to breathe easier and removing many of the troubling symptoms that come with sinus problems.
Your team of sinus relief specialists at Glatz Group of Valley ENT want to provide you with some insight into how balloon sinuplasty can be the optimal choice for you if you’re ready to live a life free of sinusitis.
What Is Balloon Sinuplasty?
Balloon sinuplasty is a safe and affordable procedure to fix many of your sinus-related issues.
Balloon sinuplasty was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2005 and has since been used to treat over 375,000 individuals suffering from sinus problems.
During the procedure, our sinus doctor will put a small balloon in the sinus openings in order to expand them and improve drainage. After this part of the procedure is done, the balloon is then safely deflated and removed.
Amazingly, this non-invasive procedure does not require the removal of any tissue or bones, and has been said to be just as effective as conventional sinus surgery. Another benefit is that the balloon sinuplasty procedure can be performed in our McAllen ENT office, which means you save money and time by not having to stay overnight in a hospital.
Am I a Good Candidate for Balloon Sinuplasty?
If you suffer from chronic sinusitis that has not been effectively treated by over-the-counter or prescription medications, balloon sinuplasty could be the answer.
Individuals struggling with nasal congestion, coughing, headaches, or even bad breath due to sinus issues could also benefit from the procedure. If your sinusitis isn’t due to a deviated septum or nasal polyps, there is a good chance that balloon sinuplasty could be the answer to your problems.
However, if you are dealing with issues to the physical structure of your nose – such as a deviated septum – you will likely need the anatomical problem corrected through another procedure.
Who Performs Balloon Sinuplasty?
Otolaryngologists, also known as ear, nose, and throat (ENT) doctors specialize in performing balloon sinuplasty. Our sinus relief specialists at Glatz Group will perform a number of thorough exams in order to determine what procedure is right for you and to ensure that you are a prime candidate for balloon sinuplasty.
Ultimately, our goal is to provide the medical care and service that you need.
Why Choose Balloon Sinuplasty?
Not only is balloon sinuplasty less invasive than conventional sinus surgery, but it is also considered a safe alternative. Because balloon sinuplasty is not performed in an operating room at a hospital, which can greatly increase costs, the procedure is also a more cost-effective option. Additionally, the procedure is typically covered by most insurance companies.
Alongside being a less invasive and reasonably priced alternative, there’s also less downtime for recovery. This means less pain and bleeding that is associated with traditional sinus surgery.
Balloon sinuplasty also helps to preserve your healthy mucus membranes, nasal tissues, and structure.
And perhaps the biggest reason why you should choose balloon sinuplasty – you can rid yourself of the painful and bothersome symptoms associated with chronic sinusitis. An enhanced quality of life is something that you just can’t beat!
