What Is Sinusitis?

Sinusitis, also known as a sinus infection, is the inflammation of the sinuses, the air-filled cavities around your nose and eyes. This common condition occurs when the sinus openings become blocked, leading to fluid buildup and potential infection. 

You may experience unpleasant symptoms that significantly affect your daily life and well-being, including:

  • Persistent nasal congestion or blockage
  • Thick nasal discharge, often yellow or green
  • Facial pain or pressure, especially around the forehead, eyes, and cheeks
  • Decreased sense of smell and taste
  • Ear pain, sore throat, and bad breath
  • Coughing, which may be more severe at night
  • Fatigue and irritability
  • Fever (in severe cases)

Depending on the severity of your sinusitis, you could have these symptoms anywhere from four to 12 weeks. Many people have recurring episodes multiple times per year.

If this sounds like your situation and you’re looking for long-lasting relief, balloon sinuplasty might be right for you.

Balloon Sinuplasty for Sinusitis Treatment

Balloon sinuplasty is a groundbreaking procedure designed to treat chronic sinusitis and other nasal blockage conditions. 

Dr. Daneshrad and his team begin by introducing a tiny balloon attached to a thin, flexible guide wire into your affected sinus passageway. They then slowly inflate the balloon to expand your sinus opening. This expansion helps break up blockages and widen the sinus pathways for better airflow and drainage. 

Once we’ve adequately opened your sinuses, we gently deflate and extract the balloon. 

The results are clear, properly functioning sinuses.

Balloon sinuplasty is particularly effective for anyone who suffers from chronic sinusitis. And unlike traditional sinus surgery, it doesn’t require cutting or removing bone and tissue. You’ll experience significant improvement in your symptoms and nasal function with a fast, low-pain recovery.
