Q: What is the difference between standard sinus surgery and balloon sinuplasty?
Endoscopic sinus surgery involves taking the patient to the operating room. It is performed under general anesthesia. Although it is minimally invasive, it does involve changing the anatomy by removing tissue to facilitate drainage.
Balloon sinuplasty is a safe effective office procedure that has the advantage of preserving the patients’ anatomy. It works like angioplasty, but instead of using a balloon to open blocked vessels in the heart, the balloon is used to open narrow or blocked sinus openings to facilitate drainage.
