Balloon SinuplastyTM* Technology Benefits
Safe and effective
While use of any surgical instrument involves some risk, clinical studies have shown the Balloon SinuplastyTM system to be safe and effective in relieving symptoms of sinusitis.
The technology uses small, soft, flexible devices that are introduced through the nostrils. These devices gently open blocked sinus openings.
Because in many cases, no tissue or bone is removed during surgery using this technology, there may be reduced bleeding. As a result, the need for uncomfortable nasal packing may also be eliminated.
Fast recovery time
While recovery time varies with each patient, many people can return to normal activity within 24 hours.
Does not limit treatment options
The Balloon SinuplastyTM technology is an endoscopic tool and may be used with other medical therapies or surgical techniques. It does not limit future treatment options if you have progressive disease.
