Struggling with chronic sinusitis is uncomfortable and can reduce your quality of life. If you haven’t responded to medication, your ENT (ear, nose, throat) specialist may recommend Balloon Sinuplasty as an option for minimally invasive surgical intervention to help improve breathing, and reduce swelling and inflammation of the sinuses.
Because Balloon Sinuplasty is a specialized ENT procedure, not all hospitals and surgery centres are able to perform it. At Clearpoint Health Network, we offer Balloon Sinuplasty at our private surgical centre in Toronto. Our private ENT specialists in Toronto can help you regain your quality of life and alleviate your chronic sinusitis symptoms, so you can breathe more easily!
6 Facts You Should Know About Balloon Sinuplasty Surgery
- What is this procedure for and how will it help my sinus symptoms?
Balloon Sinuplasty is a minimally invasive surgery for chronic sinusitis symptoms. It’s an option for patients who have not responded to medication prescribed for their symptoms by their ENT specialist or primary care provider. The procedure will provide relief from uncomfortable and painful sinusitis symptoms.
- What happens during Balloon Sinuplasty surgery?
The procedure is less invasive than traditional sinus surgery procedures because it doesn’t involve removing bone or tissue from the nose. Traditional sinus surgeries are more invasive and have a longer down time, while Balloon Sinuplasty is a relatively quick, minimally-invasive day procedure. This allows patients to recover faster and return to their normal activities. Balloon Sinuplasty is equally as effective at relieving symptoms of chronic sinusitis when compared to other, more invasive sinus procedures.
- Do I qualify for Balloon Sinuplasty?
Your ENT specialist will perform diagnostics to see if you quality for Balloon Sinuplasty. If Balloon Sinuplasty is recommended for your chronic sinusitis, you can access private ENT surgery at a Clearpoint Health Network surgery centre in Canada.Before your private surgery at our Toronto centre, you will complete a Pre-Surgical Patient Questionnaire to provide us with your basic medical history. We also require your most recent CT scan and diagnostics from your doctor. If your diagnostics confirm that you’re a suitable patient for the procedure, we may also request a History and Physical, along with bloodwork and ECG, from your family doctor. Our ENT surgeon will review your medical information during your virtual consultation. After your consultation with our ENT surgeon, your Balloon Sinuplasty surgery can be booked in as little as 4 to 6 weeks at our private surgery centre.
- What is the average recovery time for Balloon Sinuplasty?
Recovery time varies with each patient, but generally people are able to resume normal activities within a few days. It is a safe, minimally invasive procedure with a relatively quick recovery time.
