Treatment for Chronic Sinusitis:
When suffering from chronic sinusitis, the associated painful symptoms can be unbearable. If medication alone fails to alleviate the symptoms, your primary doctor may refer you to an Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) specialist, who can suggest the best course of treatment, which may include medication therapy or surgical interventions to clear the sinus passageways.
One of the newest treatment options available for treating chronic sinusitis and blocked sinuses is Balloon Sinuplasty™ technology, which is much less invasive and clinically proven to be safe and effective in improving patients’ quality of life. If you have been diagnosed with chronic sinusitis and are not responding well to antibiotics, this FDA-cleared technology provides a viable option.
Balloon Sinuplasty™ technology is a catheter-based system that uses a small, flexible sinus balloon catheter to open up blocked sinus passageways, thereby restoring normal sinus drainage. This endoscopic procedure gently widens the walls of the passageway while maintaining the sinus lining’s integrity, providing patients with relief from chronic sinusitis.
