Balloon Sinuplasty is a recent advance in endoscopic sinus surgery in which the opening of the sinuses are made bigger with a specially designed balloon. In appropriate patients, this procedure can speed recovery and has less bleeding and pain.
Balloon sinuplasty may be performed as a procedure in the office setting using local anesthetics, allowing for faster recovery times. It may also be combined with other minimally invasive sinus surgical techniques.
