Balloon Sinuplasty (BSP) is a breakthrough sinus surgery procedure performed by ENT doctors that open sinus passages to relieve sinus pain and sinus pressure associated with chronic sinusitis. Medical therapy and Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery (FESS) are two very common techniques used for patients suffering from sinus infections.
Advantages of Balloon Sinuplasty
Balloon Sinuplasty is minimally invasive and has a short recovery time, meaning that you will be able to return to your normal lifestyle more rapidly.
Since Balloon Sinuplasty can be performed as an in-office procedure, under local anesthesia and recovery can be as rapid as 24 hours, it is a good option for those with minimal sinus issues who do not wish to undergo a long recovery time. It is also a good option for those who are adverse to surgery in general or patients with health problems who have encountered complications about general anesthesia.
The speedier recovery time is another benefit, leading many patients to choose balloon sinuplasty for the treatment of their sinus issues. No one enjoys missing out on the pleasures of life, so the sooner one can get back to their normal, daily lives, the better.
