Balloon Sinuplasty Procedures Performed in the Wesley Chapel, FL, Area
A breakthrough in chronic sinusitis treatment, balloon sinuplasty is a safe and minimally invasive way to relieve unpleasant sinus pressure and related symptoms. Scotch Institute of Ear Nose & Throat is proud to offer this innovative technology to our patients in Wesley Chapel, Florida, and throughout the region. Led by board-certified otolaryngologist Dr. Brett Scotch, our practice provides the highest level of sinus care in a friendly, comfortable, and modern setting.
Balloon sinuplasty drastically improves upon traditional endoscopic sinus procedures that usually involve cutting nasal bones and tissues. Thankfully, there is no extensive surgery involved in a balloon sinuplasty (also known as balloon sinus dilation). In this outpatient procedure, a tiny deflated balloon is fed into the sinuses and inflated to very gently remodel the bone and allow the sinuses to drain. The bone will heal itself, and the recovery period is remarkably fast – patients are able to return to the activities they enjoy soon after the procedure is complete.
Furthermore, Dr. Scotch performs this procedure right here in our Wesley Chapel, FL, office, eliminating the added expense of going to a hospital or surgery center. To ensure the best possible outcome for our patients, Dr. Scotch utilizes an advanced 3D image-guided sinus navigation computer that helps provide enhanced precision during the procedure. Anesthesia is not necessary with a balloon sinuplasty; only a numbing agent is needed to keep patients comfortable.
