Balloon sinuplasty is a minimally invasive treatment option that can be performed by Dr.Glatz right here, in the office. Balloon sinuplasty technology is used to treat chronic or recurrent sinus infections (sinusitis) affecting the sinuses above your eyebrows as well as under/behind your eyes. Dr. Glatz will need to determine if your condition is one that may benefit from this treatment, and he can help you understand the risks and benefits of this procedure. The key objective of balloon sinuplasty is to reshape the anatomy to expand sinus pathways and restore drainage. The procedure utilizes small balloons placed in key places in the nose and sinus, which are then dilated to expand the sinus pathways. Balloon Sinuplasty is an effective, lasting option for patients whose symptoms do not resolve with medication. The balloon sinuplasty procedure is performed in the office, does not require general anesthesia, and in most cases patients are able to resume normal activities within 24 hours.
