It is estimated that more than 37 million Americans suffer from sinusitis every year making it one of the most common health conditions in the country. Traditionally, those who suffer from the pain, pressure, and other symptoms of recurring and persisting sinus infections have two routes to relief: (1) medication or (2) painful sinus surgery.
When medications don’t work and traditional sinus surgery is not a desirable option, what is a patient to do? The physicians at the Orlando Sinus & Allergy Center specialize in a minimally invasive procedure called balloon sinus dilation.
Our balloon sinus dilation treatment is a minimally invasive treatment option that is performed at the Orlando Sinus & Allergy Center. It’s an effective option for some patients whose symptoms don’t resolve with medication.
It does not require general anesthesia and may result in less bleeding and pain than traditional sinus surgery. In most cases, the patient is able to resume normal activities the day of the treatment. The physicians at the Orlando Sinus & Allergy Center can determine if your condition is one that may benefit from balloon sinus dilation and can help you understand the risks and benefits of this treatment.
