Cutting Edge Sinus Relief without the Cutting
1 in 10 Americans suffer from sinusitis.
Anyone who has suffered from chronic sinus congestion can attest to the discomfort it brings. Many people endure it for years, trying over-the-counter medications, antibiotics and other remedies, or simply live with it.
Now there is sinuplasty, a relatively new procedure using a catheter and balloon device which has made sinus surgery at Cape Cod Hospital and Falmouth Hospital less invasive with a quicker and more comfortable recovery time. Our otolaryngologists are skilled in the surgery, known as “Balloon Dilation Technology.” The technique widens the sinus opening permanently, without cutting, making it less susceptible to infection.
Over 150,000 people have chosen Balloon Sinuplasty™
because it is:
Minimally Invasive • Safe and Effective • Clinically Proven
Balloon Sinuplasty is a breakthrough, minimally invasive procedure that offers relief to chronic sinusitis sufferers.
Balloon Sinuplasty (BSP) is a safe and effective procedure for chronic sinusitis patients who are not responding well to medications and are seeking relief from uncomfortable and painful sinusitis symptoms. With Balloon Sinuplasty, ENT doctors open inflamed sinuses in the same way that heart surgeons open up blocked arteries during balloon angioplasty. The procedure is less invasive than traditional sinus surgery, and effective at relieving symptoms of chronic sinusitis. Balloon Sinuplasty allows patients to return to normal activities quickly. Unlike conventional sinus surgery, it does not include removal of bone or tissue from the nose.
Unlike traditional sinus surgery, Balloon Sinuplasty requires no cutting and no removal of bone and tissue.
Balloon Sinuplasty (BSP) uses a small, flexible, balloon catheter to open up blocked sinus passageways and facilitate drainage of the mucus that builds up in patients suffering from chronic sinusitis.
When the sinus balloon is inflated, it restructures and widens the walls of the sinus passageway while maintaining the integrity of the sinus lining.
If you have chronic sinus congestion, chances are you could benefit greatly from Balloon Sinuplasty.
