What is Balloon Sinuplasty?
Balloon Sinuplasty is a safe and effective procedure for chronic sinusitis patients who are not responding well to medications and are seeking relief from uncomfortable and painful sinusitis symptoms.
If you have been diagnosed with chronic sinusitis and are not responding well to medication, you may be a candidate for sinus surgery. Balloon Sinuplasty is a less invasive option used to treat chronic sinusitis patients that is clinically proven to be safe, effective and improve their quality of life.
A Breakthrough in Endoscopic Sinus Surgery
- Safe & Less Invasive – With Balloon Sinuplasty, there is no cutting of nasal bone or tissue.
- Proven Effective – Most patients report clinically meaningful improvement in sinus symptoms and quality of life through 5 years following surgery.
- Fast Recovery – While recovery time varies with each patient, recovery is typically fast; most patients return to work and normal activity within 2 days.
With Balloon Sinuplasty, the specialists at Lake ENT open inflamed sinuses in the same way that heart surgeons open up blocked arteries during balloon angioplasty. The procedure is less invasive than traditional sinus surgery, and effective at relieving symptoms of chronic sinusitis.

Balloon Sinuplasty allows patients to return to normal activities quickly. Unlike conventional sinus surgery, it does not include removal of bone or tissue from the nose. And, Balloon Sinuplasty is now offered by Lake ENT as an in-office procedure, under local anesthesia, so there is no need to go to an operating room or undergo general anesthesia.
