Balloon Sinuplasty Treatment
What Is Balloon Sinuplasty Treatment?
Addressing chronic sinusitis, the Balloon Sinus Dilation procedure (more commonly known as balloon sinuplasty) is an in-office procedure that opens your sinus cavity and drainage pathways to improve sinus health.
The treatment gently restores airflow, aids in drainage and helps healing. Patients who receive the treatment typically report a meaningful improvement in their health and quality of life for at least two years after their balloon sinuplasty procedure.
The Benefits of Balloon Sinus Procedure
Provides immediate and lasting relief by solving the anatomical problem that leads to chronic sinusitis. The procedure is convenient and comfortable, performed in the office with local anesthesia. You’ll have very little downtime. Most patients return to normal activity within one to two days. As there’s no hospital stay, general anesthesia or facility charges associated with balloon sinuplasty, the procedure is cost-effective.
What To Expect From Balloon Sinus Treatment
The procedure itself takes one and a half to two hours, depending on your anatomy and your specific condition.
Generally, patients are able to return to normal activities after a couple of days. Since it’s minimally invasive, the procedure has a low complication rate. You may experience postoperative bleeding, pain and swelling, or an allergic reaction to anesthesia or other medications administered during the procedure. Infection may also rarely occur.

Dr. Wudel – One year ago, I was sick of feeling sick. I’d been battling a sinus/respiratory infection since Thanksgiving, and despite multiple doctor visits, medications, and even holistic remedies, I still felt ill. But since the balloon sinuplasty, I have felt great. So far, in the past twelve months, I haven’t even had a cold! Thank you so much for giving me back my health!
