Balloon Sinuplasty (BSP) is a breakthrough endoscopic surgery developed to treat patients suffering from Chronic Sinusitis. BSP is a safe and effective treatment option when sinus infections last more than 12 weeks, or are regularly occurring throughout the year. Sinusitis symptoms are painful and annoying, but do not have to be permanent!
Using methods similar to how heart surgeons clear blocked arteries, trained ENT doctors use Balloon Sinuplasty to open inflamed sinuses. Being far less invasive and having a shorter recovery time, Balloon Sinuplasty has been proven to be as effective as traditional sinus surgery. This innovative procedure does not cut bone or tissue from the nose, allowing patients to return to normal activities within three days.
Balloon Sinuplasty requires no cutting of nasal bone or tissue. More than 390,000 patients with Chronic Sinusitis have been treated by qualified ENTs with Balloon Sinuplasty.
In a clinical study, most patients that received Balloon Sinuplasty reported improvements of sinusitis symptoms and quality of life through two years after surgery.
BSP is available in-office, and most patients returned to their normal activities and work within 2 days. However, recovery time may vary between patients.
