Sinus Balloon Dilation in San Antonio, TX

San Antonio Sinus is proud to offer the latest treatment option for patients who experience recurrent and persistent sinusitis.

Forget about steroids and antibiotic solutions or surgery. Balloon Sinus Dilation is a simple, minimally-invasive procedure that can be done directly in our office for instant relief that lasts.

The objective of balloon sinus dilation is to reshape anatomy to expand sinus pathways and restore drainage. The procedure utilizes small balloons placed in key places in the nose and sinus, which are then dilated to expand the sinus pathways. It may be an effective, lasting option for some patients whose symptoms do not resolve with medical therapy.[i]

The balloon sinus dilation procedure may not require general anesthesia, and in many cases the patient is able to resume normal activities after just 24 hours.[ii]
