Balloon Sinuplasty

Balloon Sinuplasty is a safe, minimally-invasive, FDA-approved procedure which can now be performed in many cases as an outpatient in your ENT doctor’s office. Dr. Lueg has performed thousands of these procedures and many now are able to be done in his office without going to the hospital or undergoing general anesthesia.

During the procedure a very small soft balloon catheter is placed through your nose into your sinus openings using a specialized sinus endoscope and viewed on a high definition video monitor. The balloon inflates, gently opening up your blocked sinuses without any cutting. The procedure takes about 20 minutes and there are no facial incisions, bruising, scars or uncomfortable nasal packing. Many patients are able to return to normal activities in the afternoon or the very next day.

Studies have shown Balloon Sinuplasty to be extremely safe, effective and lasting. Among all reported studies, involving thousands of procedures now, there have been no serious adverse events reported from the balloon. One study of over 1000 patients found 96% of patients reported significant improvement in their sinus symptoms.

Chronic Sinusitis causes facial pain, headache, pressure, congestion, loss of smell, post nasal drainage, sneezing, coughing and chronic fatigue. The symptoms can be miserable and overwhelming. Many people suffer for years, going through multiple rounds of antibiotics and nasal sprays without ever getting real relief.

If you have these symptoms and medical treatments never worked or are no longer working make an appointment to see if you are a candidate for Balloon Sinuplasty.
