Balloon Sinuplasty treatment is a safe and minimally invasive form of treatment that is used to address chronic sinusitis in people and free them from the uncomfortable and much-dreaded sinus pain. This form of treatment, usually practised by ENT specialists, has successfully been tried on over 380,000 patients and involves no cutting or slitting of the nasal bone or tissue. If you're suffering from chronic sinusitis but not responding well to any kind of medication, then you must visit an ENT specialist and opt to go for a sinus surgery. With Balloon Sinuplasty or sinus balloon plasty, the ENT specialist opens up the blocked sinus passageways, in the same way as your cardiologist opens up blocked arteries, using a small, fine and flexible balloon catheter thus facilitating draining of the accumulated mucus. Once the sinus balloon is inflated, the balloon catheter reforms and widens the walls of the sinus passageway keeping the sinus lining intact, such that mucus no longer accumulates and relapses the symptoms of chronic sinusitis in patients. The entire procedure does not take more than 45 minutes to one hour of time, including the time taken to give local anaesthesia and perform the after-surgery care. This minimally invasive surgical procedure allows patients to return to normal activities within a couple of days. While some doctors offer sinuplasty surgery under local anaesthesia in their office, some others prefer to perform the surgery in an operating room under general anaesthesia. Cost of a Balloon Sinuplasty typically ranges from $3,812 to $7,000.
