Balloon sinuplasty (Sinus Surgery)

Sinusitis is one of the most common health problems in America, with over 30 million sufferers each year. 

When your sinus infection and pressure headache symptoms stop responding to medication (like antibiotics and topical nasal steroids), your ear, nose, and throat doctor can assess your problems and come up with a treatment plan to help you breathe easier and return to everyday activities without pain. 

Because there are many different causes of sinus and nasal congestion and pain, your ENT doctor will consider your health history and complete an evaluation to determine if a balloon sinuplasty would be an effective treatment.

Balloon sinuplasty technology is a safe, state-of-the-art, and minimally invasive type of nasal surgery. It can be done conveniently right by a surgeon in the office using local anesthesia.

You don’t have to live with hearing loss. Get assessed by a trained and certified audiologist to learn more about options for improving your hearing—from hearing tests and tinnitus treatments to hearing aids and implants.
