What is Balloon Sinuplasty?

Balloon Sinuplasty is a minor procedure that opens blocked sinus pathways by placing and inflating a small balloon-like catheter into the obstructed area. The balloon is then removed, leaving the pathway opened and allowing your sinuses to work properly, and once again flush out bacteria, putting an end to your sinusitis symptoms.

Why should I choose Balloon Sinuplasty over Endoscopic Sinus Surgery?

Endoscopic Sinus Surgery is invasive and has a long recovery time, lasting weeks or months.

Endoscopic Sinus Surgery, which is irreversible, also requires the permanent removal of bone and tissue from your face. While this procedure is commonly the treatment recommended by physicians, a minimally-invasive option may bring you similar results without the pain and long road to recovery.

Will my insurance company pay for this? What about if I have Medicare?

Most insurance companies and Medicare cover Balloon Sinuplasty if considered medically reasonable and necessary. To be certain of your level of insurance coverage, contact your insurance provider to find out your specific policy.

How successful is the procedure?

96% of patients undergoing a Balloon Sinuplasty procedure have reported drastic improvement in sinusitis symptoms. In addition, Balloon Sinuplasy is minimally-invasive, quick, taking an hour or potentially less, and not associated with the risks or complications of surgery
