Balloon Sinuplasty for Patients in Pinehurst, NC & Beyond
A Revolutionary Breakthrough in Sinusitis Treatment
The otolaryngologists of Pinehurst Surgical are proud to offer Balloon Sinuplasty (BSP) to patients in Pinehurst, Raeford, Rockingham, Sanford and surrounding areas of North Carolina.
This minimally-invasive procedure offers relief to patients dealing with painful symptoms related to chronic sinusitis or recurrent acute rhinosinusitis. Balloon Sinuplasty allows our Pinehurst ENT physicians to open inflamed sinuses without removing bone or tissue from the nose. The procedure can be performed in any of our ENT clinical offices under local anesthesia, and patients can resume normal activities in about two days, on average.
Symptoms of Sinusitis
Patients suffering from sinusitis in Pinehurst, Fort Bragg, and throughout NC experience blockage due to inflammation of the sinus lining. This causes mucus to build up, resulting in a variety of uncomfortable symptoms and preventing normal mucus drainage. Because of this, it is common for patients to misdiagnose sinusitis for the common cold or seasonal allergies. A visit to our ENT specialists can provide you with an accurate diagnosis and a variety of treatment options, including Balloon Sinuplasty.
According to the American Academy of Otolaryngology — Head and Neck Surgery, symptoms of sinusitis include the following:
- Sinus pressure and congestion
- Sinus headaches
- Facial pain
- Tenderness and swelling around the eyes, cheeks, nose and forehead
- Difficulty breathing through the nose
- Loss of the sense of smell or taste
- Yellow or green mucus from the nose
- Teeth pain
- Sore throat from nasal discharge
- Bad breath
How Can it Help You
Balloon Sinuplasty devices are an endoscopic, catheter-based system proven to provide relief from painful and nagging sinus symptoms.
Opening blocked sinus passageways facilitates drainage of the mucus that builds up and results in pain. When the sinus balloon is inflated it restructures and widens the walls of the sinus passageway, while maintaining the integrity of the sinus lining.
To-date this technology has helped more than 420,000 patients by dilating more than 1.1 million sinus passageways. Numerous studies and information published in leading Ear, Nose, and Throat (ENT) medical journals shows that the technology is safe and effective at providing what Pinehurst’s patients need most – relief from their symptoms and an improved quality of life. No numbing injections required!
