What is balloon sinuplasty

Balloon Sinuplasty is a minimally invasive procedure that opens sinus passages. It relieves the pain and pressure associated with chronic sinusitis. This procedure is conducted here at the American Sinus Institute. The Honrubia Technique for Balloon Sinuplasty is done under anesthesia. This ensures that patients have a more relaxing and positive experience than when the procedure is performed under a local anesthetic. It also allows us to address other sinus related complaints. An anesthesia provider administers intravenous medications to keep patients lightly sedated and comfortable.

After Balloon Sinuplasty, the sinuses remain open, allowing the return of normal sinus drainage and relief of sinus pressure.

benefits of balloon sinuplasty

Balloon Sinuplasty is a more advanced form of the original sinuplasty procedure. Instead of removing significant portions of sinus tissues, this method employs a tiny balloon that is placed in the area of the blocked sinuses and slowly inflated. As the balloon inflates, it compacts the walls of your sinuses and widens the passage, which is then flushed with a saline solution. In general, this procedure takes far less time than a traditional sinuplasty surgery and recovery time is drastically reduced.

In addition to the reduced recovery time required by balloon sinuplasty, there are a number of other benefits as well. The process is typically less expensive than traditional procedures, there are fewer risks involved since there is less cutting, and the overall discomfort experienced by the patient is minimized. This procedure can be done as an outpatient service in less than an hour, and the need for gauze packing is eliminated.

I am an American Sinus Institute fan! My daughter Ramsey Schultz, my husband Chris Lynn Schultz and I have all had the balloon sinuplasty procedure at American Sinus Institute. We all had different symptoms. My husband had chronic post nasal drip and snoring. The coughing in the morning and snoring at night were truly awful. He is doing great now and I can sleep through the night. My daughter had bronchitis three to four times a year. She was in college and living in another city and It would make me so unhappy that I couldn't help her. Since the BSP, she has not been sick. It's been two years and I couldn't be happier. I had a chronic ear ache for 15 years. Since the BSP, no pain. I can also travel on an airplane without debilitating pain. We are so HAPPY!

Everything about this place was amazing, from immediate appointments to friendly staff, to compassionate thorough doctors, they were very helpful and caring. The balloon Sinuplasty was well worth doing, I got relief within a few days from excruciating ear pain and sinus pressure pain.

My singing voice sounds beautiful again !! If I could I'd give them all a hug, but that would probably freak them out lol Highly recommend this Institute.
