We are a recognized National Center of Excellence for In-Office Balloon Sinus Dilation
Sinusitis sufferers--find instant relief that lasts. In-office balloon sinus dilation is a minimally-invasive option that can be performed by one of our physicians in our Shiloh office. The goal of in-office balloon sinus dilation is to reshape anatomy to expand sinus pathways and restore drainage.
How A Little Balloon Restores Sinus Drainage
Your physician first locates the sinus area to be treated
The device is carefully positioned.
Your physician gently inflates the small balloon and dilates the treatment area to restore drainage. The balloon is removed from the treatment area.
The procedure utilizes small balloons placed in key places in the nose and sinus, which are then dilated to expand the sinus pathways. It may be an effective, lasting option for some patients whose symptoms do not resolve with medication.
