What Is Sinusitis?

Sinusitis, commonly called a sinus infection, is an inflammation of the sinus cavities. The four major sinuses are located in the forehead, cheekbones, and nose bridge. Symptoms of sinusitis can include facial pain and pressure, headaches, nasal congestion, and thick yellow or green mucus. Sinus treatments can involve prescription medication or allergy shots to achieve symptom relief, although for some, these methods often lose their efficacy after multiple uses.

What Is Balloon Sinuplasty?

Balloon sinuplasty is a minimally-invasive procedure offered at Southern Indiana ENT Sinus & Allergy in Columbus, IN, to treat sinusitis’s frustrating and often debilitating symptoms. The procedure is quick and easy and is done in-office, lasting around 30 minutes. The procedure begins with an oral sedative to ensure patient comfort. Then, utilizing an endoscope, the surgeon can visualize the sinus openings to guide the ballooning device into them. Once the balloon is in the proper place, it is inflated to enlarge the openings to improve drainage and airflow. This process is repeated for all sinus cavities with the assistance of a saline solution, giving patients immediate relief from their chronic sinus infection symptoms.

The Benefits of Balloon Sinuplasty

The balloon sinuplasty procedure can benefit those with chronic sinusitis or sinus infection symptoms. It provides quick relief without requiring tissue removal or incisions that is significantly more cost effective than traditional sinus surgery. Immediately following the procedure, patients may experience relief from their sinusitis symptoms. In addition, the procedure permanently improves airflow in the sinuses with minimal risk of infection or other complications, offering many patients the freedom to live without the need for constant allergy or sinus medication. Finally, balloon sinuplasty recovery is usually less than a day of discomfort compared to the average five-day recovery that includes uncomfortable nasal packing following conventional sinus surgical procedures.

In-Office Chronic Sinus Infection Treatment

An in-office balloon sinuplasty offers many benefits over traditional sinus surgery. It is completed within minutes, meaning you can return to your daily life almost immediately after the procedure. In addition, there are no long recovery times or side effects associated with this type of treatment. An added benefit is that it is a much more cost-effective solution for chronic sinus infection symptoms than traditional procedures. With an in-office balloon sinuplasty, you will receive the best possible treatment for your chronic sinus infection symptoms.

Balloon sinuplasty is designed to relieve chronic sinusitis and sinus infection symptoms.

In-Office CT Scan at Southern Indiana ENT

In house CT Scan

One of the best ways to diagnose sinus and ear problems is with a CT (computed tomography) scan (also known as a “CAT” scan).

MiniCAT™ is a compact, upright CT scanner specifically designed for the sinuses and ears. With MiniCAT™, getting a scan is quick, easy, and comfortable. Adult scans take 40 seconds and pediatric scans take only 20 seconds, and the radiation dose is much lower than sinus and ear scans taken on full-body CT scanners. With MiniCAT™, your doctor gets fully digital 3D images of your sinuses and ears, which gives results in instant access to the information needed to diagnose your problem.
