What is Balloon Sinuplasty™?
Balloon Sinuplasty (BSP) is a safe and effective “minimally invasive” procedure for chronic sinusitis patients who are not responding well to medications and are seeking relief from uncomfortable and painful sinusitis symptoms.
What happens during surgery?
The procedure is less invasive than traditional sinus surgery, yet effective at relieving symptoms of chronic sinusitis. Balloon sinuplasty allows patients to return to normal activities quickly. Unlike traditional sinus surgery, it does not remove bone or tissue from the nose.
Why choose balloon sinuplasty?
The benefits of balloon sinuplasty include:
Safe: More than 150,000 patients have been treated safely with balloon sinuplasty.
Effective: Over 95% of patients who’ve had the procedure say they would have it again.
Fast: While recovery time varies with each patient, people can quickly return to normal activities.
How do I qualify for this procedure?
All patients are requested to complete a Pre-Surgical Patient Questionnaire to provide us with your basic medical history. We also require your most recent CT scan and should these confirm you are a suitable patient for the procedure and our facility we will request a History and Physical along with bloodwork and ECG, when required, from your family doctor.
What is the average process like and how long will it take for me to return to my normal activities?
Recovery time varies with each patient, generally people are able to resume normal activities within a few days.
How should I prepare for my surgery?
Your surgeon will best advise how to prepare based on your current circumstances. Often pre-surgical preparation is limited to day prior to the procedure to aid in achieving the best possible outcome following your surgery.
