Balloon sinuplasty can eliminate frequent sinus infections
A sinus infection occurs when your sinuses become inflamed by bacteria, viruses, mold, allergies, or other irritants. The inflammation of your nasal tissues cuts off proper drainage, leading to congestion, facial pressure, headaches or even a cough. If you experience frequent, long-lasting sinus infections — also known as chronic sinusitis — minimally invasive balloon sinuplasty in Houston is an effective treatment for severe sinus infections that can deliver lasting relief in as little as 20 minutes.
“Dr. Kaplan is an outstanding surgeon and did an amazing job restoring my sinuses. The balloon sinuplasty that he is an expert in is the best procedure to correct your sinus problems. One month after my surgery, my sinuses are completely open. If you need sinus surgery, Dr. Kaplan is your best option hands down.”
How blocked sinuses can cause frequent sinus infections
A sinus infection is most frequently caused by bacteria settling in your sinuses, resulting in inflammation, pain, and blockages. If your sinuses are overly narrow or otherwise misshapen, this may also contribute to improper drainage. When your sinuses can’t drain properly, it can cause a breeding ground for bacteria, leading to painful infections that won’t go away with simple over-the-counter treatments.
Though it has similar symptoms to the common cold, chronic sinusitis lasts a lot longer and frequently creates additional symptoms such as chronic headaches, discolored mucus (usually green or yellow), facial pressure, nausea, post-nasal drip, and cough. Untreated sinusitis symptoms can lead to further complications. Fortunately, balloon sinuplasty is quick, effective treatment for severe sinus infections, and can be the key to stopping your frequent sinus infections in their tracks.
Stop sinus infections sooner with balloon sinuplasty
Balloon sinuplasty is a non-invasive, in-office procedure that treats chronic sinusitis, sinus-related headaches, and other sinus-related symptoms, providing patients long-lasting relief from their frequent sinus infections. During the procedure, your ENT uses a tiny balloon to widen the nasal passageways, restore normal drainage, preventing infections and helping you to breathe better while relieving headaches and facial pressure.
It’s that simple. The best part? The procedure takes less than 20 minutes and most patients are back at work between 24 and 48 hours. Due to its quick and effective nature, balloon sinuplasty has become an increasingly attractive treatment for severe and frequent sinus infections.
