Sinusitis Treatments: Beyond medication or traditional surgery
New option delivers lasting relief from chronic or recurrent sinusitis
In the past, sufferers of chronic or recurrent sinusitis were limited to two treatment options - repeated and ongoing management with medication, or aggressive sinus surgery to open sinus drainage pathways. Balloon sinus dilation is a new, in-office option performed under local anesthesia that widens the sinus pathways and restores natural drainage. Compare available treatment options:
A minimally invasive procedure that uses small balloons to restore drainage and deliver instant, lasting relief.
Traditional sinus surgery opens blocked sinuses by removing tissue and bone.
Medication is used to manage the symptoms of sinusitis and bring near-term relief.
As with most procedures, eligibility of reimbursement coverage is based on established medical necessity.
Balloon sinus dilation is proven to be safe and effective.
