Balloon Sinus Dilation

Office Sinusitis Treatment Offers Instant Relief That Lasts:

It is estimated that more than 37 million Americans suffer from sinusitis every year making it one of the most common health conditions in the country.  For many years, those who suffered from the pain, pressure and other symptoms of recurring and persisting sinus infections had two routes to relief:  (1) medication or (2) painful sinus surgery.  When medications don’t work and traditional sinus surgery is not a desirable option, what is a patient to do?  Both Dr. Devang Shah and Dr. Daniel Rothbaum have extensive experience in office balloon sinus dilation, an effective treatment alternative for many appropriate sinusitis patients.

Balloon sinus dilation is a convenient, comfortable treatment option that may be performed right here in our offices.  It may be an effective alternative for some patients whose symptoms don’t resolve with medication.  It does not require general anesthesia, and many studies show that after the procedure patients experience less facial pain, use less antibiotics, make fewer visits to their doctor, and are more able to perform day-to-day activities at home and at work.  In most cases, the patient is able to resume normal activities the day of the treatment.

How does it work? In balloon sinus dilation, our doctors a small balloon to expand the sinus drainage passages and restore normal drainage.  Unlike traditional surgery, this treatment does not require the removal of bone or tissue.  This shortens the treatment and recovery time and eliminates the need for general anesthesia and its side effects.
