Balloon sinuplasty is a relatively recently-introduced, FDA approved, safe and effective procedure to treat chronic sinusitis symptoms. The techniques and instrumentation are currently being used by otolaryngologists both in the operating room and the clinic to treat the symptoms of chronic sinus disease. Multiple studies have shown both the safety and effectiveness of balloon sinuplasty. With this technique, there is no cutting away of tissue. Only a small balloon is used to dilate the opening to the sinuses thereby providing relief of the symptoms of chronic sinusitis. The recovery time is decreased with this procedure, usually allowing patients to return to work as soon as the next day. While the technique does not cure all sinus problems, in carefully selected patients, it can provide a less invasive and very effective treatment for their sinus issues. We have performed this procedure here in Conway very successfully in both the operating room and the clinic.
