Balloon Sinuplasty

Balloon sinuplasty is now the choice of many people who suffer severe or chronic sinusitis that has not responded to other therapies, such as oral or nasal corticosteroids, antibiotics, or rinses.

When you visit Dr. Kwiatkowski in Las Vegas, he dilates the opening of three nasal sinuses. This will help them to be drained and cleared. Many people suffer problems that cause the sinus membranes to get inflamed and prevent mucus, discharge, or pus drainage. This leads to congestion.

As time passes, the inflamed and blocked nasal passage may prevent breathing and can cause problems such as insomnia, jaw ache, or headaches.

The balloon sinuplasty surgery helps Dr. Kwiatkowski in Las Vegas to widen the blocked nasal passages and flush out or remove the congestion by just using saline solution.

What are the side effects?

Almost all adults who had balloon sinuplasty reported that their symptoms improved within the first few days after the surgery and they did not suffer much side effects. People who went through the surgery reported clear and open nasal passage compared to before the surgery. The procedure has helped to preserve healthy nasal tissues, structure of the nose, and mucous membranes.

Is it safe?

Compared to other procedures, balloon sinuplasty is an effective and safe procedure as long as it is performed by a qualified doctor.
