According to Dr. Kevin Sadatia, a diplomate of the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery in Orange County, research shows that in-office Balloon Sinuplasty has proven to be far superior to traditional Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery procedures performed in the operating room.
“Balloon Sinuplasty is a painless and highly effective sinus treatment that has a high rate of success in treating chronic sinusitis. Sinusitis has many adverse symptoms that can take their toll on a person’s health and quality of life so it’s great to have this in-office treatment option available to my patients. I now have the ability to instantly relieve patients of constant sinus pain and pressure,” explains Dr. Kevin Sadati.
Sinusitis patients typically complain of nasal congestion, yellow-green sinus drainage, pressure around the eyes, forehead and cheeks, feelings of fatigue, pain in their back teeth and headaches. Balloon Sinuplasty is an easy solution sinusitis patients often do not even know exists. It is an in-office procedure that is performed using a small balloon to gently expand and remodel key sinus structures. Tissue is simply reshaped rather than sinus tissue removal or cutting used in traditional sinus surgery methods. Patients find immediate relief from sinus symptoms after this pain free procedure. Recovery is quick, with patients returning to normal activity within 48 hours, and produces long last results for sinusitis sufferers.
