The revolutionary balloon sinuplasty procedure is now available at Dr. Kevin Sadati’s Newport Beach office. This alternative to sinus surgery is a great option for patients who are suffering from chronic sinusitis. The balloon sinuplasty procedure is designed for Orange County patients who want relief from their sinusitis symptoms but do not want to undergo a major surgical operation, such as sinus surgery. This minimally-invasive procedure is highly-effective, and there is virtually no recovery after it is complete.
What is the Balloon Sinuplasty?
The balloon sinuplasty is a minimally-invasive procedure designed to eliminate the sinusitis infection and provide patients with instant physical relief of their symptoms. This procedure is an alternative to traditional sinus surgery procedures and has proven itself to be highly effective.
What are the Benefits of the Balloon Sinuplasty?
The biggest benefit of the balloon sinuplasty procedure is that it eliminates the sinusitis infection and provides patients with the long-term relief that they have been seeking. In addition to that, it’s a minimally-invasive procedure that does not require a surgery to be performed. The recovery is virtually non-existent as most patients are back to their normal daily routines within 24 hours. This procedure has proven to be both safe and effective. Given the fact that it is performed in the office, many people are finding that the balloon sinuplasty is also a more cost effective option. While sinus surgery can be very expensive, there are minimized costs associated with this state-of-the-art procedure.
How is this Procedure Performed?
Many patients are eligible to have the balloon sinuplasty procedure performed in the office, rather than having to go under general anesthesia at a hospital or surgical center. During the procedure, Dr. Kevin Sadati uses a catheter with a balloon attached to it. He inserts the catheter into the nose, toward the sinus cavities. At that point, the balloon is inflated which helps eliminate the blockage in the sinus area that is causing the infection. This is a quick and effective procedure, and once it is complete many patients note that they experience immediate relief. This is becoming an increasingly popular treatment option for chronic sinusitis.
Patients who are suffering from chronic sinusitis may experience a variety of different symptoms. Common symptoms associated with this infection include persistent nasal congestion, facial pain, swelling in the face, pressure in the sinus area, fevers, headaches and sore throat, to name a few. If you or someone you love is suffering from chronic sinusitis, it’s time to recognize that you have options outside of traditional medications that simply alleviate symptoms and antibiotics that might not work.
