Not everyone with chronic sinusitis responds well to antibiotics, nasal steroids, or over-the-counter (OTC) medications. The Center for ENT’s sinus doctors are among the most skilled and experienced providers of balloon sinuplasty in Houston, Texas. This breakthrough treatment is a safe and effective alternative to nasal surgery that uses minimally invasive techniques to alleviate many of the symptoms disrupting your quality of life.
Balloon sinuplasty employs an innovative, minimally invasive technique utilizing balloon technology to safely and effectively dilate clogged sinus openings. Under local or light IV anesthesia, a balloon is placed through the nose and into the sinus. Once the balloon is in position, it is gently inflated, deflated, and then removed, leaving the sinus permanently open to drain properly. The procedure treats infection and helps prevent sinus problems in the future. Balloon sinuplasty can typically be performed in 30 minutes in the office with minimal side effects and recovery time—no need to go to the operating room.
