ARC Balloon Sinuplasty

Safe and effective sinus surgery

You may be a candidate for sinus surgery if you are diagnosed with chronic sinusitis or recurrent acute rhinosinusitis. Austin Regional Clinic offers a proven, less invasive technology to treat patients with chronic and recurrent acute sinusitis, often presented with facial pain and pressure, sinus pressure, or nasal congestion. ARC Ear, Nose, and Throat (ENT) doctors use balloon sinuplasty, also called sinuplasty, to open inflamed sinuses.

Unlike traditional sinus surgery, balloon sinuplasty is minimally invasive and effective at relieving symptoms of chronic sinusitis. Balloon Sinuplasty (BSP) requires no cutting or removal of bone or tissue. By using a small, flexible balloon catheter, ENT doctors can open up blocked sinus passageways and facilitate the drainage of mucus buildup in patients suffering from chronic sinusitis symptoms.

With balloon sinuplasty, there is faster recovery, allowing patients to return to normal activities quickly. And it’s now offered by some doctors in their offices using local anesthesia, avoiding the need for an operating room or general anesthesia.

Benefits

  • Less invasive
  • Quicker recovery
  • Office procedure
  • No need for an operating room or general anesthesia
