How to Tell If Balloon Sinuplasty is Right for You

How to Tell If Balloon Sinuplasty is Right for You

About 37 million Americans suffer from chronic sinus problems.  Chronic sinusitis forces people to visit their primary care physician more often and also forces them to take more prescription and over-the-counter medications.

Inflamed sinus tissue prevents drainage, which can lead to infection and even more misery.

So, how do you tell if balloon sinuplasty is right for you? There are many symptoms that indicate sinusitis including headache, fatigue, feelings of pressure behind the face, heavy drainage, fever, and bad breath.

People who suffer from chronic sinusitis suffer from these symptoms for 12 weeks or more, even with medical therapy.

About half a million sinus surgeries are performed every year to help patients who do not respond to medication. In these cases, there is an anatomical underlying issue that is preventing sinuses from draining properly. Balloon sinuplasty is an alternative to more involved surgical procedures.

Balloon sinuplasty is a great way to finally experienced long-term relief from the pain of chronic sinus issues. Contact our experts today to find out more about how this procedure might be right for you.
