“After my NFL football career, when I wasn’t working out every day of my life, my sinus problems started to magnify. When I was at work broadcasting, I started having severe post nasal drip and started taking allergy medicine and using nasal pumps.”Marshall Faulk, NFL MVP, Superbowl Champion, Broadcaster
Chronic nasal congestion is one of the most common complaints we see. If symptoms of facial pain and pressure, congestion, difficulty breathing or other common symptoms persist for three months or longer it may be chronic sinunsitis. Traditionally medications and endoscopic sinus surgery were the only effective treatments for persistent sinus symptoms. Now ENT surgeons have a set of minimally invasive tools, Balloon Sinuplasty, that can be used to enlarge the natural opening of the sinuses without removing bone or tissue.
Sinusitis affects 17% of women and 10% of men each year.
Unlike traditional sinus surgery, Balloon Sinuplasty requires no cutting and no removal of bone and tissue. Balloon Sinuplasty (BSP) uses a small, flexible, balloon catheter to open up blocked sinus passageways and facilitate drainage of the mucus that builds up in patients suffering from chronic sinusitis symptoms.
Balloon Sinuplasty (BSP) is a breakthrough procedure used by ENT doctors to treat chronic sinusitis patients. It has been used in over 350,000 procedures since 2005. Unlike traditional sinus surgery, Balloon Sinuplasty preserves the normal anatomy of the sinuses and does not require the removal of bone and tissue. It is now available to some patients as a procedure conducted in a doctor’s office, under local anesthesia.
