With the warmer weather comes allergies, which can lead to irritation of the sinuses. When sinusitis occurs, you can experience nasal discharge and congestion, headaches, and coughing. If you are experiencing these uncomfortable sinus symptoms that are negatively impacting your everyday life, you may be able to benefit from a Balloon Sinuplasty. Read on to learn more about this treatment option.
About Balloon Sinuplasty
Balloon sinuplasty in Denver requires no cutting and no removal of bone and tissue, unlike traditional sinus surgery. During the treatment, a small, flexible balloon catheter is used to open up any blocked sinus passageways and allows drainage of the mucus build up that causes symptoms. When the balloon is inflated, it widens the walls of the sinus passages while keeping the sinus lining intact.
There are many benefits from receiving a Balloon Sinuplasty in-office, including:
- It uses local anesthesia
- Recovery is quick
- There is high patient satisfaction
- The procedure is done in a comfortable setting
- Most insurance companies cover the costs
