Lafayette, CA Balloon Sinuplasty
Balloon Sinuplasty – This minimally invasive in-office procedure which is performed endoscopically under topical anesthesia utilizes a balloon catheter which is introduced into the blocked sinus via a guide wire. The balloon which is incompressible is then inflated against the native drainage pathway of each sinus thereby forcing an enlargement of these constricted passages. The major advantage of this procedure is attributed to its less invasive nature than the more commonly performed FESS which means the recovery time from surgery is much quicker.
