If so, the ear, nose, and throat specialists at DelRey MD in Southern California offer tailored solutions to meet each client’s unique condition. One solution is balloon sinus dilation (balloon sinuplasty).

What is Balloon Sinus Dilation?

Balloon sinus dilation is an additional tool our physicians can use during endoscopic surgery. The procedure uses a catheter-based device to clear your sinuses and restore normal drainage and function. Since it is minimally invasive, the mucosal tissue and anatomy of your sinuses remain unchanged. Best of all, most of our clients return to their normal activities 24 hours after the procedure.

Are You a Good Candidate for Balloon Sinus Dilation?

Not everyone is a good candidate for balloon sinus dilation. Our physicians at DelRey MD typically recommend the procedure to clients experiencing recurrent sinus infection, chronic sinus infection, pressure headaches, post-nasal drip, or nasal congestion related to sinus disease.

Often the procedure is recommended to clients experiencing sinus infections five times a year or more. Balloon sinus dilation can also provide relief for clients suffering from chronic sinus symptoms for over twelve weeks.

How do you know if you are experiencing symptoms related to chronic sinusitis? If you are experiencing one or more of the following symptoms, it’s time to schedule an appointment with the ear, nose, and throat specialists at DelRey MD.

  • Stuffy nose or runny nose
  • Severe congestion
  • Facial pressure or pain
  • Loss of sense of smell
  • Teeth pain
  • Fatigue

What are the Benefits of Balloon Sinus Dilation?

Sinusitis is a condition affecting your sinuses. Inflammation and infections can interfere with mucus drainage, resulting in a chronic sinus condition.

Balloon sinus dilation is a minimally invasive procedure. It does not require a lengthy recovery time, typically around 24 hours. Clients typically experience zero pain or bleeding and will notice an improvement in their symptoms after the procedure.

If you are experiencing chronic sinusitis more than five times a year contact the specialists at DelRey MD online or call one of their Southern California offices at 661-471-2595 to schedule a consultation.
