Balloon Sinusplasty in Nashville

What is Balloon Sinuplasty™?

At ENT Specialists of Cool Springs we understand that the painful symptoms associated with chronic sinusitis can be overwhelming. If symptoms are difficult to control with medications alone, the best course of treatment may be medication therapy or surgery to open the sinus passage ways.

Balloon Sinuplasty™ technology is a surgical option for patients in Nashville and Franklin for treatment of blocked sinuses. If you have been diagnosed with chronic sinusitis and are not responding well to antibiotics you may be a candidate for surgery, you now have a less invasive option that is clinically proven to be safe, effective and improve the quality of your life.

Balloon Sinuplasty™ technology is an endoscopic, catheter-based system for patients suffering from sinusitis. The FDA-cleared technology uses a small, flexible, sinus balloon catheter to open up blocked sinus passageways, restoring normal sinus drainage. When the sinus balloon is inflated, it gently restructures and widens the walls of the passageway while maintaining the integrity of the sinus lining.

Benefits of Balloon Sinuplasty™

The benefits of Balloon Sinuplasty™ technology for treating chronic sinusitis symptoms include:

Safe and Effective
While use of any surgical instrument involves some risk, clinical research has indicated the Balloon Sinuplasty™ system to be safe and effective in relieving symptoms of sinusitis.

Minimally Invasive
The technology uses small, soft, flexible devices that enter entirely through the nostrils. These devices gently open blocked sinus openings, and in many cases, without tissue or bone removal.

Reduced Bleeding
Because in many instances no tissue or bone is removed when using this technology, there may be reduced bleeding associated with the procedure.

Improved Recovery Time
While recovery time varies with each patient, many people can return to normal activities within 24 hours.

Does Not Limit Treatment Options
This technology is an endoscopic tool and may be used with other medical therapies or sinus surgery techniques. It does not limit future treatment options if you have progressive disease.
