Balloon Sinuplasty

Recent advances in sinus surgery have led to the development of a less invasive technique of sinus surgery called Balloon Sinuplasty. Sinuses are opened in the same way that doctors open up blocked arteries of the heart during a balloon coronary angioplasty. The technology has been extensively studied and shown to be safe and effective.


Balloon Sinuplasty serves as a minimally invasive surgical treatment option to traditional sinus surgery.

In performing the Balloon Sinuplasty procedure, doctors thread a small, flexible guide wire into the sinus cavity, over which a balloon catheter is fed and positioned into the area of sinus blockage. The balloon is then inflated, which dilates and enlarges the opening of the sinus drainage passageway, ultimately relieving the sinus obstruction. The balloon is then deflated and removed from the nose.

Balloon Sinuplasty In-Office

The physicians at E.N.T. Surgical Associates are performing Balloon Sinuplasty in the office under local anesthesia for select patients.
Benefits of In-Office Balloon Sinuplasty

Local Anesthesia

In-Office Balloon Sinuplasty is an option for patients who desire to avoid or, due to other medical conditions, are ineligible for general anesthesia.

Fast Recovery

While recovery time varies with each patient, most patients who undergo Balloon Sinuplasty in the office can return to normal activities and work within 1-2 days.

Comfortable Surroundings

Experience the procedure in the comfort of your physician’s office rather than a hospital operating room.

High Patient Satisfaction

The majority of patients who had Balloon Sinuplasty In-Office would recommend the procedure to family and friends.

Potential for Significant Cost Savings

Some eligible patients may have lower out-of-pocket costs if the procedure is performed in a lower cost of care setting, such as a physician’s office.
