More than 37 million Americans suffer from sinusitis every year, making it one of the most common health conditions in the country. The impact of chronic sinusitis can extend beyond nasal and sinus symptoms, where sufferers experience challenges to their quality of life, sleep, and work productivity.
Balloon sinuplasty has been put through its paces, so to speak. The treatment involving a wire and catheter over an inflatable balloon has actually been performed on hundreds of thousands of people and the entire procedure is FDA-approved.
People with sinus problems who see their problems change suddenly are obviously overjoyed. It’s the simplicity and speed of the whole thing that make such a resounding impact.
Here are a few balloon sinuplasty patient reviews that illustrate the many ways having the procedure done can benefit you and improve your life.
One realtor raves how she can talk on the phone now. Getting the surgery as a result of always sounding and feeling congested and feeling overly dependent on medications, Susan went ahead and gave balloon sinuplasty a shot.
Her breathing has improved drastically and she feels like she doesn’t have to restrict her time on the phone.
This highlights one of balloon sinuplasty’s elegantly simple benefits: it’s design. The only function during the procedure is an expansion in the sinus and this opens up so that proper drainage can occur.
Anyone who feels like they have restricted airways or excessive facial pressure as a result of chronic sinusitis will feel the benefits of balloon sinuplasty pretty fast. This is a real game changer if you, like Susan the realtor, are someone who has to be communicating heavily all day long.
Darryl, a patient of Dr. Nguyen, reports how he doesn’t need to use nasal sprays anymore. Besides the benefits of being able to breathe with his symptoms gone, he doesn’t have to constantly worry about forgetting to take his nasal spray or having to go out and get a new one.
Breaking free from having to apply and re-apply what at best are temporary solutions is something truly liberating. It’s also something anyone who’s held down by sinusitis can appreciate.
Balloon sinuplasty isn’t even as complicated as say, allergy treatment. With allergy treatment, you’ve got to go back often and keep the ball rolling. Balloon sinuplasty on the other hand is short and to the point.
The entire thing takes less than an hour and a half and then off you go. After 48 hours you’re more than able to be on your feet. This is a definite advantage over surgeries which can require a hospital stay and a lengthy recovery.
For those suffering from chronic sinusitis, Houston Sinus and Allergy is now offering a new simple office procedure called balloon sinuplasty, or balloon sinus dilation, which can provide immediate and long lasting relief.
