Balloon Sinuplasty from Pittsburgh Sinus Centers

Balloon Sinuplasty for Sinus Sufferers

Put an end to headaches, congestion, frequent doctor visits and rounds of antibiotics, all without surgery!

“My sinuses have always been blocked. I can’t breathe right…last year alone I was on antibiotics four different times.” - Jamie Lorelli

When an internal issue is causing you to suffer from chronic sinus infections, both your health and happiness are at-risk. Your routine is disrupted by doctor visits, headaches, mouth-breathing, and round after round of antibiotics.

Do something about it!

Many chronic sinusitis sufferers turn to permanent endoscopic sinus surgery to end their suffering.

Why? Because they don’t know that there is often a safe, effective alternative available. They go through this invasive procedure in the hopes that permanent relief will be found, and spend the next few months recovering.

Instead of immediately signing up for an irreversible and painful sinus surgery that will require the removal of bone and tissue from your nose, explore balloon sinuplasty from Pittsburgh Sinus Center.

Why endoscopic sinus surgery should NOT be your first choice.

Endoscopic sinus surgery is a permanent surgery that removes parts of the bone and tissue in your sinuses to clear your sinus pathways and restore drainage. It is an invasive procedure, irreversible, and recovery can be long and painful. It is only required when there is a major plumbing problem in your nose that cannot be corrected using less invasive procedures.

Full recovery from endoscopic sinus surgery will take weeks or months to resolve with many patients taking at least a week off of work following the procedure. Follow-up visits to rip off scabs (debridement) inside the nose to prevent scar tissue from forming will also be required.

An Ear Nose and Throat (ENT) doctor can observe your condition and diagnose the severity of your issue. While sinus surgery is often recommended by ENT specialists when there is a blockage causing chronic sinusitis, there is a safer, less-painful option that has been proven to effectively clear your blockage and restore drainage to your nose.

Our ENT Specialist, Dr Sam Mathur, can recommend other options for your sinus relief.

What Balloon Sinuplasty Is and How It Works

Performed by experienced ENT Dr. Sam Mathur at Pittsburgh Sinus Centers, balloon sinuplasty is a safe, minimally-invasive procedure, designed to give you long-term relief from the symptoms of your chronic sinusitis without the pain, recovery time, and risk associated with surgery.

The in-office procedure, administered under local anesthesia or IV sedation, utilizes a small balloon, which is inserted into your blocked sinus pathways, and inflated. As the balloon is inflated, your obstructed pathways are opened. The newly opened pathways regain their function and air will once again flow through your sinuses. This allows you to breathe comfortably out of your nose and prevents further sinus infections.

Balloon sinuplasty is a procedure known to be:

  • Fast
  • Low-risk
  • Effective
  • Affordable

Recovery time is near instant with patients resuming normal activities within a day or two.
