ENT Services at Pine Creek Medical Center
More Americans suffer from sinusitis than diabetes, asthma, or coronary heart disease. Sinusitis affects 37 million Americans each year making it one of the most common heath problems impacting a person’s quality of life and costing over $8 billion in annual health care expenditures.
Now there is a new way to relieve obstructed sinuses. With Balloon Sinuplasty, a small catheter is placed into the natural opening of the sinus cavities to allow the passage of a cylindrical balloon. The balloon is gently inflated (dialated) to widen the opening of the affected sinuses. The result is the drainage of the infected sinuses so that inflammation can finally subside.
Pine Creek Medical Center is excited to offer Balloon Sinuplasty, the breakthrough procedure that relieves the pain and pressure associated with chronic sinusitis.
