In-Office Balloon Sinuplasty for Chronic Sinusitis in Coos Bay, Oregon
Balloon Sinuplasty is a minimally invasive procedure performed by experienced ear, nose and throat specialist Dr. W. Wallace Webster in our Coos Bay, Oregon office under local anesthesia.
This breakthrough in-office treatment for chronic sinusitis, which requires minimal recovery time, has resulted in consistently positive results for many patients. Balloon sinuplasty is a welcome advance and alternative to more invasive surgeries that require general anesthesia and a longer recovery period. What’s more, most health insurance companies will cover all or part of the cost of balloon sinuplasty under most circumstances.
What is Balloon Sinuplasty?
During this procedure, a small balloon is inserted into your sinuses and is then inflated to dilate (widen) the openings of your nasal sinuses. Saline spray is then used to “flush out” the sinuses so they can be drained and cleared of any mucus, pus or discharge that is causing congestion. The purpose of this procedure is to restore proper drainage without tissue removal, bleeding or pain.
