Find Relief with Sinus Surgery in Fall River, New Bedford & Wareham, MA
At Southcoast Health, we strive to be your reliable health care team, offering comprehensive care that focuses on your needs. For patients suffering from sinus infections or chronic sinusitis in MA or RI, we offer many options for effective treatment.
One of the ways we reduce sinusitis symptoms and relieve sinus pressure and pain in patients is through Balloon Sinuplasty™ (BSP). This is a breakthrough procedure used by our surgeons to safely and effectively treat those who have not responded well to nonsurgical treatments like antibiotics, nasal steroids and over-the-counter drugs for the following sinus pain symptoms:
- Facial pressure and pain
- Sinus headaches
- Weak sense of smell
- Yellow or green mucus in the nose
How Balloon Sinuplasty™ Works
With Balloon Sinuplasty, a specially-designed catheter is inserted into the nose to reach the inflamed sinus cavity. Then, a small balloon is slowly inflated, which widens and restructures the walls of the sinus passage, helping to drain mucus from the blocked sinus and restore normal sinus drainage with minimal bleeding. This approach also preserves the natural structure of the sinuses, since it doesn’t require any cutting or the removal of bone and tissue.
The associated risks with this procedure include tissue and mucosal trauma, infection or possible optic injury.
