What Is Balloon Sinuplasty?
Balloon Sinuplasty is a minimally invasive sinus procedure performed on eligible patients who suffer with chronic sinusitis. Tiny balloons are placed in key places in the nose and sinuses, which are then dilated to expand and widen the sinus passageways. The goal is to reshape anatomy to restore proper drainage. It is proven to be safe and is effective for those who are seeking relief from uncomfortable sinus pain symptoms. Balloon Sinuplasty is less invasive than traditional sinus surgery and involves no cutting, and no removal of bone or tissue. This innovative procedure can be performed by Dr. Kaplan right here in our Houston office in as little as 20 minutes!
