Balloon Sinuplasty

a proven, low-risk solution for chronic sinus problems

Are you suffering from:

  • facial pressure
  • sinus headaches
  • difficulty breathing
  • yellow or green mucus

Do you experience frequent sinus infections that do not clear up with medication?

Balloon Sinuplasty can help.

What is Balloon Sinuplasty?

In a Balloon Sinuplasty procedure, the doctor guides a catheter with a balloon over it into the patient's sinuses and gently inflates it -- similar to balloon angioplasty for blocked arteries -- opening the inflamed sinuses and restoring their normal functioning.

and Sinus Center


More than 350,000 patients worldwide have been treated safely since 2005.


Patients show significant improvement in sinus symptoms and overall well-being in the 2 years following surgery, according to studies.

Quick Recovery

Though each patient will experience variation, patients typically return to normal activity and work within a couple of days.

Minimally invasive

The procedure does not require incisions or the removal of bone or tissue.


Balloon Sinuplasty can be performed using local anesthetic in the doctor's office, with no hospital stay needed
