Balloon Sinuplasty™ Benefits


The benefits of Balloon Sinuplasty™ Technology:

  • Safe and Effective
    While use of any surgical instrument involves some risk, clinical research has indicated the Balloon Sinuplasty™ System to be safe and effective in improving symptoms of sinusitis.
  • Minimally Invasive
    The technology uses small, soft, flexible devices that enter entirely through the nostrils. These devices gently open blocked sinus openings, and in many cases, without tissue or bone removal.
  • Minimal Bleeding
    Because in many instances no tissue or bone is removed when using this technology, there may be little bleeding associated with the procedure.
  • Quick Recovery Time
    While recovery time varies with each patient, many people can quickly return to normal activities.
  • Does Not Limit Treatment Options
    This technology is an endoscopic tool and may be used with other medical therapies or sinus surgery techniques. It does not limit future treatment options if you have progressive disease.

Intended for use by or under the direction of a physician. Balloon Sinuplasty™ Technology has associated risks, including tissue and mucosal trauma, infection, or possible optic injury. Consult your physician for a full discussion of risks and benefits to determine whether this procedure is right for you.
