Balloon Sinus Procedure

The Balloon Sinus Procedure is an advanced surgical procedure used to treat sinusitis and other related problems through minimally invasive techniques. This involves inserting a thin endoscope into the nose without disrupting the surrounding bone and tissue. A small balloon is then gently inflated to widen blocked passageways and allow for proper drainage of sinus fluid. Patients can benefit from less bleeding and shorter recovery times with balloon technology.

A new in-office treatment option is helping thousands of recurrent and chronic sinusitis sufferers!   Is it right for you?

More than 37 million Americans suffer from sinusitis every year, making it one of the most common health conditions in the country. Traditionally, those who suffer from the pain, pressure and other symptoms of recurring and persisting sinus infections have two routes to relief:

  1. Medical therapy (antibiotics, steroids, etc.)
  2. Functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS)

But now another option is available, that’s worked for thousands of sufferers.

It’s called a Balloon Sinus Procedure, and its minimally invasive, it’s performed right in your doctor’s office without general anesthesia…and the best part is, you can be back at work within 24 hours!


Unlike extensive sinus surgery, the Balloon Sinus Procedure-as performed by the physicians of ENT & Allergy Associates does not require the removal the bone or tissue from sinus drainage pathways.  Its objective is to reshape your anatomy to expand sinus pathways and restore drainage. The procedure utilizes small balloons placed in key places in the nose and sinus, which are then dilated to expand the sinus pathways.   It has proven to be an effective, lasting option for some patients whose symptoms do not resolve with medication.

Your ENT & Allergy Associates Physician can determine if your condition is one that may benefit from the balloon sinus procedure, and help you understand the risks and benefits associated with this treatment option.
