Balloon Sinuplasty

Unlike traditional sinus surgery, Balloon Sinuplasty requires no cutting and no removal of bone and tissue.

Balloon Sinuplasty (BSP) implements a small, flexible catheter device to open up and relieve blocked sinus passageways and facilitate drainage of the mucus that builds up and causes chronic sinusitis symptoms. When the sinus balloon is inflated, it safely reshapes and widens the walls of the sinus passageway wthout compromising the structural integrity of the bone and tissue.

Leading ENT journals and a multitude of expert ENT physicians have proven Balloon Sinuplasty to be safe and effective. Patients have reported no device-related adverse events and demonstrated statistically and clinically significant improvement in their sinusitis symptoms, especially when compared to other forms of sinus surgery.
