What is Balloon Sinuplasty?
Balloon Sinuplasty is a breakthrough procedure that relieves the pain and pressure associated with chronic sinusitis, is less invasive than traditional sinus surgery. It allows most patients to return to normal activities quickly. Dr. Rubinstein is the only ENT sinus specialist in the Hudson Valley who has a fully certified in-office surgical suite where patients who prefer to have general anesthesia can have this done safely in a more convenient and private setting.
Similar to how angioplasty uses balloons to open blocked arteries, Balloon Sinuplasty, a system of FDA-cleared, catheter-based instruments, opens blocked sinuses.
The procedure is less invasive than traditional sinus surgery. It allows most patients to return to normal activities quickly.
With Balloon Sinuplasty, a specially-designed catheter is inserted into the nose to reach the inflamed sinus cavity. A small balloon is slowly inflated, which widens and restructures the walls of the sinus passage, helping to drain mucus from the blocked sinus and restore normal sinus drainage without cutting and with minimal bleeding. This approach also preserves the natural structure of the sinuses.
Published clinical data shows that Balloon Sinuplasty provides symptom relief for the majority of patients:
In the operating room:
- A multi-center study of 1,036 patients who had Balloon Sinuplasty reported that sinus symptoms improved in 95 percent of patients at an average follow-up period of 9 months.2
- Another multi-center study followed 65 patients who had Balloon Sinuplasty and reported clinically and statistically significant improvement in patient symptoms out to two years.3
In the office:
- Ninety-five percent of patients who have had Balloon Sinuplasty say they would have it again.
Balloon Sinuplasty is performed under general anesthesia in an outpatient setting; however, some surgeons are choosing to treat certain patients in their office under local anesthesia. The reported complication rate for Balloon Sinuplasty is low.
