What is balloon sinuplasty?
Balloon sinuplasty is a minimally invasive procedure that is used to treat a severe sinus infection or chronic sinusitis. With a sinus infection, the nasal passages become inflamed, causing them to swell and reduce in diameter. This constriction prevents mucus and bacteria from being able to drain properly from the cavity of the nose. The result leads to pain and trouble breathing. To release abnormal sinus pressure and heal an infection, balloon sinuplasty is performed. This treatment is a modern and less invasive solution compared to conventional sinus surgery. To see if this therapy is right for you, call Cross Timbers ENT in Midlothian, Mansfield, or Arlington, TX today.

How is balloon sinuplasty performed?
A balloon sinuplasty is considered an outpatient procedure and is performed either on-site at Cross Timbers ENT or at a local surgery center or hospital. First, local or general anesthesia will be used. Then, a very thin endoscope with a flashlight at the end will be inserted up the sinus cavity to provide a good visual of the area. Next, a flexible balloon catheter will be introduced up the nose. Once in place, the balloon will be slowly inflated to expand the sinus opening. Once complete, the catheter will be removed and you'll be free to go home.
