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

Balloon Sinuplasty surgery 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.
