Anthem Balloon Sinuplasty
Chronic sinusitis can be painful, frustrating and detrimental to your overall health. When conservative sinusitis treatments have not been effective in controlling your sinus infections and blockages, you may be considering more invasive treatments, including surgery. For many people suffering from chronic sinusitis, balloon sinuplasty can offer a less invasive treatment for sinusitis than traditional sinus surgery. If you live in or near Anthem, balloon sinuplasty is available at Estrella ENT.
Chronic sinusitis can last for several months or years, restricting breathing, causing sinus pain and impacting wellness. If you have reoccurring sinus infections that are not responding to other forms of treatment, balloon sinuplasty may be an option for long-term relief. Chronic sinusitis can lead to serious health issues, including sleep apnea, high blood pressure and higher risks for other health complications. Outpatient sinus surgery that could improve your breathing, relieve your pain and reduce health risks is available at Estrella ENT near Anthem.
Is Sinus Surgery Right for You?
Traditional sinus surgery requires removing or breaking bones within the sinus passage and nose to expand the sinuses and allow drainage to reduce blockages. A less invasive option is balloon sinuplasty, which can be performed at our clinic on an outpatient basis. During this procedure, a balloon catheter is inserted up into the sinus passage, then inflated to gently widen the space. This can achieve similar results to traditional sinus surgery without damaging bone or tissues in the nose.
Good candidates for balloon sinuplasty have suffered from chronic sinusitis for many months or years and want long-term relief. The sinus specialists at Estrella ENT can provide a thorough examination to determine if balloon sinuplasty may be right for you. If you are a good candidate, we can schedule your outpatient sinus surgery the same day you come in for your examination.
