Treating Chronic Sinusitis in Northern Illinois

Balloon Sinuplasty™ is a minimally invasive sinus infection treatment for chronic sinusitis.

What is Balloon Sinuplasty?

Balloon Sinuplasty uses a sinus balloon catheter to open up air cells in patients suffering from chronic sinusitis. The procedure involves the insertion of an endoscope into the nose for a direct visual examination of the openings into the sinuses. Surgeons enlarge the patient’s sinus openings to clear passageways in order to restore normal sinus ventilation and drainage.

The sinus balloon catheter is gradually inflated to gently restructure the previously blocked nasal passage, maintaining the integrity of the sinus lining and restoring normal sinus drainage and function.

How Long Does it Take to Recover from Balloon Sinuplasty?

Because the balloon sinuplasty procedure is minimally invasive, it is typically done in an outpatient setting. While recovery time will vary from patient to patient, many people can return to normal activities within 24 hours after surgery.
