The Honrubia Technique™ for Balloon Sinuplasty
Patient Comfort and Safety Come First
The Honrubia Balloon Sinuplasty Technique™, is a revolutionary treatment that is an effective, minimally invasive technique for treating chronic sinusitis that involves minimal tissue removal and less pain, allowing patients a quicker recovery than traditional sinus surgery. The surgeons of the America Sinus Institute all recommend the Honrubia Technique™ for Balloon Sinuplasty surgery over traditional sinus surgery methods.
The Honrubia Technique™ is based on placing the comfort and safety of the patient first. With the Honrubia Technique™, Balloon Sinuplasty surgery is done under anesthesia, this ensures that patients have a relaxing, positive experience and is much more effective than traditional local anesthetic. An anesthesia provider administers intravenous medications to keep patients lightly sedated and comfortable during the procedure.
The Honrubia Technique™ also uses exclusively, Johnson & Johnson Balloon Sinuplasty System of products. Johnson & Johnson and its subsidiary Acclarent, are the leaders in Balloon Sinuplasty research and product development.
Balloon Sinuplasty – A Breakthrough in Endoscopic Sinus Surgery
Balloon Sinuplasty (BSP) is a safe and effective sinus procedure for chronic sinusitis patients seeking relief from uncomfortable sinus pain symptoms.
Balloon Sinuplasty – Safe & Less Invasive
With Balloon Sinuplasty, there is no cutting of nasal bone or tissue. The procedure is less invasive than traditional sinus surgery, and effective at relieving symptoms of chronic sinusitis. One of the top advantages of Balloon Sinuplasty is it allows patients to return to normal activities quickly.
Balloon Sinuplasty Surgery uses a tiny balloon catheter that is inserted into the blocked nasal passages. After insertion, the balloon catheter is inflated, opening and restructuring nasal passages. Since no bone or tissue has to be removed, the integrity of the inner lining of the sinus passages is maintained.
Once the balloon is inflated, saline is sprayed into the inflamed sinus passage to remove any mucus, pus, or other infected materials. The balloon catheter is removed, leaving behind an open, clean sinus passage.
Balloon Sinuplasty – Proven
*Over 95% of patients who’ve had the procedure say they would have it again.*
Balloon Sinuplasty – Recovery Time
**While recovery time varies with each patient, recovery is typically fast. In a study of in-office balloon dilation, most patients returned to work and normal activity within 2 days.** Most of the balloon sinuplasty surgeries performed are completed under general anesthesia. However, some patients can undergo balloon sinuplasty in office and under local anesthesia.
