- Laser sinus treatment
- Radiofrequency ablation for nasal and sinus congestion
- Sinus surgery, including endoscopic surgery

- The latest treatment for sinusitis
For those who suffer from the headaches, congestion, fatigue, and other symptoms of sinusitis, Balloon Sinuplasty offers a safe, minimally invasive option to alleviate symptoms. During the procedure, small, flexible devices are inserted into the nostrils to gently open blocked sinus openings — in many cases without tissue or bone removal.
The procedure offers several benefits, including:
- Reduced bleeding – Since often there is no need to remove tissue or bone, there is less bleeding and a reduced need for uncomfortable nasal packing.
- Quicker recovery – While recovery time varies for each individual, many people can return to normal activities within 24 hours.
- Does not limit other options – Balloon Sinuplasty can be used with other medical therapies or sinus surgery techniques, and does not limit future treatment options for those with progressive disease.
