A safe and highly effective procedure
At Carreño ENT Partners, we perform Balloon Sinuplasty as a safe and non-invasive procedure that helps widen the sinus passageways to improve breathing and reduce the risk of obtaining sinus infections.
A Balloon Sinuplasty is a very simple, typically in-office procedure, that uses a balloon to dilate sinus openings and relieve sinus symptoms in a rapid and efficient, non-invasive manner. A thin, flexible tube is inserted through the nostril into the sinus cavity. Once in position, a tiny balloon at the end of the tube is inflated, gently widening the sinus passageway. Once the narrowed area has been opened, the balloon is deflated and removed along with the tube, restoring normal breathing and drainage. This procedure is routinely done with topical anesthesia so that patient discomfort is minimal or non-existent.
