For years, patients suffering from chronic sinusitis didn’t have many appealing options for achieving relief. Over the counter medications don’t always work and can have bad side effects, and surgical options were painful and invasive. All that changed when Balloon Sinuplasty, a non-invasive and virtually painless sinusitis treatment, was introduced. Now, Kaplan Sinus Relief has taken a good thing and made Balloon Sinuplasty even better by offering intravenous (IV) sedation during our Balloon Sinuplasty procedures.

What is Balloon Sinuplasty?

Balloon Sinuplasty is an exciting new treatment for people suffering chronic sinusitis. Balloon Sinuplasty is performed by inserting tiny balloons inside key sinus passageways within the nose. Once the balloons are inserted, the sinuses are dilated and expanded, resulting in sinuses that can drain properly. The whole procedure is performed in-office in just 21 short minutes, and the results can last as long as two years and is covered by most insurances.

Is Balloon Sinuplasty Painful?

Balloon Sinuplasty is minimally invasive, but the procedure can still be nerve-wracking for patients with anxiety surrounding medical procedures. Fortunately, Kaplan Sinus Relief now offers IV sedation for the most relaxing, pain-free Balloon Sinuplasty experience possible. A trained anesthesiologist is on-hand throughout the procedure to carefully administer just the right amount of sedation and keep you comfortable. Once your pain-free procedure is over, you’ll be back to your normal life in as few as 24 hours.
