Everything You Need to Know About Balloon Sinus Dilation

Instant recovery, lasting relief

If you suffer from poor sinus drainage, you already know that antibiotics, decongestants, and steroids can do only so much. Balloon sinus dilation is a simple office procedure that gently expands the natural sinus openings to fix underlying drainage problems.

Until recently, sufferers of chronic or recurrent sinusitis were limited to two treatment options: medication therapy or aggressive sinus surgery. Fortunately, advances in medical science have opened new doors. Now there's a treatment that can be performed in your doctor’s office without the need for cutting or tissue removal.

Balloon sinus dilation is a minimally invasive office procedure, performed under local anesthesia, that delivers immediate and long-lasting relief.1 Your doctor will reshape your sinus pathways by inflating small balloons in key places in the nose and sinuses, restoring drainage.
