Balloon Sinuplasty: Avoid Surgery and Breathe Free

Are you tired of the constant struggle to breathe free? Do you need long-term relief from the pain, pressure, and lack of sleep? Are you looking for a solution that will reinvigorate your lifestyle while avoiding the risk and costs associated with surgery? Balloon Sinuplasty is the modern solution for your persistent sinus infections.

Each year millions of Americans are treated for sinus infections. Billions of dollars are spent on short-term solutions that manage symptoms, but fail to treat the underlying problem. Serious symptoms like congestion, facial pain, and lack of sleep are costly to the productivity of our schools, workplaces, and communities. Frequent infections can also be a sign of very serious medical issues that negatively impact overall health.

It’s time to take control of your sinus infections with a customized treatment plan that will help you to breathe free and enjoy all that life has to offer.

Treating the Problem, Not the Symptom...

Most sinus infection treatments focus on managing the symptoms. Over-the-counter and prescription medications can be a helpful tool, but cannot get to the root of your sinus problems. It’s time to move past symptom management and look forward to total sinus relief.

Balloon Sinuplasty is a safe, effective, and proven solution for your underlying sinus issues. By gently opening up the sinus cavity and cleaning out the infection, this process allows your body’s natural sinus flow to resume. This minimally-invasive procedure does not require hospitalization and can be done from the comfort of your doctor’s office.

Because balloon sinuplasty works directly to restore the natural flow of your sinuses, symptom relief is quick and dramatic. The balloon sinuplasty success rate has resulted in this clinically proven procedure being approved by most insurance plans.

Balloon Sinuplasty: Before and After

Balloon sinuplasty gets to the root of your sinus issues by directly addressing the physical problem, a blocked sinus passage. When sinus passages are inflamed, they prevent the natural flow of mucus through the body. This trapped mucus can get infected and results in additional pain, inflammation, and other serious medical risks.

This safe procedure works by gently opening the blocked sinus passage. A tiny catheter is inserted through the nose and is placed inside the blocked sinus cavity. Once in place, a small balloon is inflated and safely opens the passage. Once the passage is open, the sinuses are drained and cleaned to remove any infection.

Dr. Kevin Browne and his team will use topical anesthetics to numb the sinuses. He uses a specialized endoscope to locate the treatment area and place a catheter with a very small balloon on the end.

Dilate & Restore

The little balloon is gently inflated to expand and dilate the sinus passageways. When the balloon is deflated and removed, the passages remain open to restore normal sinus drainage.

Relieve - Balloon Sinuplasty procedure


Balloon Sinuplasty takes about an hour, and patients experience a feeling of immediate relief and can resume normal activities quickly. Most can return to work or school within 24-48 hours.

After the procedure has opened the blockage and natural flow is restored, symptoms quickly go away and you can finally breathe free again. With an open sinus cavity, you will begin to enjoy relief! Balloon sinuplasty provides:

  • Headache relief
  • Pressure relief
  • Pain relief
  • Congestion relief

When you can breathe free you can remember what it is like to experience all that life has to offer.

  • Restful sleep - One of the most important factors to your overall health is a good night’s sleep. Not only will you wake up refreshed, but regular patterns of healthy sleep will contribute to your total well-being.
  • Increased stamina - Enjoy the energy that comes from being able to start and finish your day strong.
  • Higher levels of productivity - As you experience better sleep and more energy, you are better equipped to focus and enjoy time spent at home, work, and school.

The Affordable Solution to Chronic Sinus Infection Symptoms

Many Americans have avoided long-term sinus treatment, because of the cost and risks associated with traditional sinus surgery. Balloon sinuplasty is a safe, effective, and minimally-invasive alternative to traditional surgical methods.

With sinuplasty, there is no hospitalization, no long-term recovery, no anesthesia, and none of the costs associated with these surgical requirements. As an in-office procedure, balloon sinuplasty risks are minimal and the benefits are exceptional.

  • Saves money - patients and insurance companies have found long-term savings in reduced expenses on medication, less frequent doctor’s visits, higher levels of overall health, and avoiding expensive traditional surgery.
  • Simple recovery - balloon sinuplasty recovery time is quick and easy. Patients leave the office and are able to quickly get back to normal life at home, work, school, and beyond.

How to Clear Sinuses Safely and Effectively

Balloon sinuplasty is not only effective, but it is also safe. Research has proven sinuplasty to provide long-term relief with little or no negative side effects. It is safe because there is no cutting, and unlike traditional surgery, it does not involve the removal of bone or soft tissue. Balloon sinuplasty risk is very low and complications are exceptionally rare.
