Balloon sinuplasty, also referred to as balloon catheter dilation surgery, is a procedure recommended for people with chronic sinus problems.
Unlike other sinus surgeries, balloon sinuplasty is a minimally invasive procedure that does not require the cutting or removal of any bone or tissue.
You may be a suitable candidate for this surgery if you
- Experience chronic and recurring sinus infections
- Have mild to moderate chronic sinus inflammation and have not been operated on before
- Have not responded well to medication used to treat your sinus problems
- Suffer from the symptoms listed above
