What is Balloon Sinuplasty?

Balloon Sinuplasty is a minimally-invasive, in-office procedure that is designed to provide relief from the painful symptoms of chronic sinusitis. Balloon Sinuplasty is performed endoscopically under topical anesthesia, making it far less invasive than traditional sinus surgery. The treatment utilizes a  balloon catheter device, which is gently inserted into the sinus passageway and then inflated to expand the drainage pathway of each sinus. One of the advantages of Balloon Sinuplasty is that it is less invasive than the more commonly performed FESS, which means a shorter surgery and recovery time for our patients.

Dr. Sassan Falsafi is an expert in the treatment of sinusitis. His vast experience in the treatment of the sinuses, particularly with the application of Balloon Sinuplasty, make him a great fit for this breakthrough treatment.
