Treating Sinusitis with Balloon Sinuplasty
At Florida Hospital East Orlando, patients suffering from sinusitis, or inflammation of the sinus cavity—a condition that causes constant congestion and pain around the sinuses—have the option of a groundbreaking treatment that can provide permanent relief from uncomfortable symptoms. Called balloon sinusplasty, this safe, effective, minimally invasive procedure can in many cases open blocked sinuses without any cutting of the nasal bone or tissue, or the use of painful packing material. Balloon sinuplasty also promises a much faster recovery time than patients might experience with traditional methods.
During this procedure, one of our skilled ENT physicians gently places a sinus catheter and flexible wire through the patient’s nostrils to access the targeted sinus. The sinus balloon is then positioned across the blocked sinus opening and then inflated. Afterward, the balloon sinuplasty system is removed, leaving an opened sinus pathway, which restores normal sinus drainage and function.
