Balloon Sinuplasty in San Diego
The painful symptoms associated with chronic sinusitis can be overwhelming. If symptoms are difficult to control with medications alone, Dr. Ashish Wadhwa can determine the best course of treatment, including further medication therapy or surgery to open the sinus passage ways.
There is an additional surgical option for treatment of blocked sinuses called Balloon Sinuplasty™ Technology. If you have been diagnosed with chronic sinusitis and are not responding well to antibiotics you may be a candidate for surgery.
Balloon Sinuplasty™ Technology is an endoscopic, catheter-based system for patients suffering from sinusitis. The FDA-cleared technology uses a small, flexible, sinus balloon catheter to open up blocked sinus passageways, restoring normal sinus drainage. When the sinus balloon is inflated, it gently restructures and widens the walls of the passageway while maintaining theintegrity of the sinus lining.
