Dr. David Malis: Changing Lives With Balloon Sinuplasty
One of the great things about living in coastal Florida is our beautiful weather and the ability to enjoy outdoor activities year-round.
Unfortunately for those who suffer from allergies and sinus infections, the impact on quality-of-life can be significant.
Symptoms of sinusitis can include throbbing facial pain or headaches, drainage of discolored discharge from the nose or down the back of the throat, nasal congestion with difficulty breathing and sleeping, bad breath, irritability, fatigue, nausea, and loss or reduced sense of taste.
Although traditional endoscopic sinus surgery, which was introduced to the United States in the mid-1980s, represents an improvement over previous sinus surgery techniques, it does require a trip to the operating room, general anesthesia, the removal of bone and tissue to open the blocked sinus passageways, and, although rare, potentially serious, life altering, surgical complications.
Historically, treatment for recurrent or chronic sinus infections has been limited to treatment with multiple medications or, if unsuccessful, traditional endoscopic sinus surgery.
Results Have Been Great
Thanks to Balloon Sinuplasty, there is now a much better alternative. Introduced and approved by the FDA in 2006, Balloon Sinuplasty is a revolutionary breakthrough procedure in the management of patients with sinus disease.
Similar to how coronary angioplasty uses balloons to open blocked arteries in the heart, Balloon Sinuplasty uses catheter-based instruments to open blocked sinuses and is dramatically less invasive than traditional endoscopic sinus surgery.
