Chronic Sinusitis sufferers: It’s time to get your life back. Thanks to Balloon Sinuplasty™ Technology, Dr. Leeman is providing relief to patients who suffer from chronic sinusitis. This minimally invasive procedure – now available in-office – effectively opens nasal passages in the same way that balloon angioplasty opens up blocked arteries. If you experience chronic facial pain, congestion, headache, and fatigue, Balloon Sinuplasty™ may be right for you.
Chronic sinusitis sufferers do not experience the normal drainage which keeps the sinus healthy. Typical treatment begins with medication. For patients unresponsive to medication, complicated endoscopic sinus surgery was traditionally the next step toward finding relief. These procedures involve the removal of bone and tissue to enlarge the sinus opening, and while effective, may lead to post-operative pain, bleeding, and scarring. Full recovery can take a week or more.
Now we have a set of minimally invasive tools, Balloon Sinuplasty™ technology that can be used to enlarge the natural opening of the sinuses, allowing drainage. Balloon Sinuplasty™ instruments are clinically proven to be safe and effective in reducing symptoms of chronic sinusitis.
