Treatment Options 

Balloon Sinuplasty™ Technology

If you suffer from persistent sinusitis, or chronic sinusitis, now there is a less invasive, surgical treatment option to relieve the pain. Balloon Sinuplasty™ Technology is designed to move easily through the sinus to unblock the sinus ostium.  Usually bone or tissue removal is not required, and normal sinus drainage and function is restored after the procedure.

What are the benefits when compared to traditional sinus surgery?
  • Safe and effective
  • Minimally invasive
  • Reduced bleeding
  • Shorter recovery time
  • Does not limit treatment options

How does Balloon Sinuplasty™ Technology work?

  Step 1: Gain Access to the Sinus
  Step 2: Inflate Balloon Across Ostium
  Step 3: Remove Balloon and Irrigate Sinus
Step 4: Remove System
