Balloon Sinus Dilation is a safe and effective procedure for many patients seeking relief from uncomfortable and painful sinusitis symptoms. It is less invasive than traditional sinus surgery. Balloon Sinus Dilation allows patients to return to normal activities quickly. Unlike conventional sinus surgery, it does not include removal of bone or tissue from the nose. And, Balloon Sinus Dilation is now offered in office under local anesthesia, so that there is no need to go to an operating room or undergo general anesthesia.
Why Consider Balloon Sinus Dilation
Balloon sinus dilation has been shown to provide long-term relief from sinus conditions that may be blocking nasal airways. This treatment safely and effectively opens sinus passageways without the extensive invasiveness from traditional surgery with more comfortability post-procedure.
Regional ENT Associates was one of the first in the area to offer this cutting-edge treatment and have maintained excellence throughout our high volume of sinus center patients. Additionally, we house a state-of-the-art Stryker neurocranial imagine guidance system in our office which allows for greater safety and efficacy.
