Since its introduction in 2005, Balloon Sinuplasty™ technology has emerged as a new complement to existing approaches. More recently, this procedure has been optimized to enable specialists to perform this minimally invasive surgery in the office setting.
Balloon Sinuplasty™ has been utilized in over 125,000 patients and 350,000 sinuses. Each day approximately 200 sinus surgeries are being performed with this technology.
Ultimately, the technology may allow for significant symptom relief for patients and faster return to normal daily activities - often in 24 hours.
Balloon Sinuplasty™ is a novel, endoscopic, catheter-based technology utilized in sinus surgery that you can discuss with your doctor. This FDA-cleared technology uses a small, flexible, sinus balloon catheter to open up blocked sinus passageways, restoring normal sinus drainage. When the sinus balloon is inflated, it gently restructures and widens the walls of the passageway while maintaining the integrity of the sinus lining.
