Overview Of Balloon Sinuplasty
Balloon sinuplasty is one form of endoscopic nasal surgery. While that may sound invasive, it is anything but. Thanks to Dr. Lee Mandel’s decades of experience – and the talented team at South Florida Sinus and Allergy Center – your balloon sinuplasty is minimally invasive. You can expect no cutting, very low surgical risk, and a quick recovery with minimal discomfort.
Treatment starts when you receive sedation through an IV from our board-certified anesthesiologist. After you are sedated, Dr. Mandel will insert an endoscope into your nasal passage. This allows him to see what is causing the inflammation. He then inserts a small balloon catheter. Not only does this open your sinuses, but it also reshapes your nasal passageway. The result is drainage of any fluid, which is helped by a saline flush. The balloon catheter is then removed, but not before it has naturally opened your sinuses. You can expect to see dramatically reduced sinusitis symptoms.
The entire procedure takes 15 minutes and is performed in our state-of-the-art, Level III state-certified procedure room. You may need up to a day to rest, but many of our patients are able to resume their normal activities within 24 hours.

Balloon Sinuplasty Benefits
Originally approved by the FDA in 2005, Balloon Sinuplasty treatment has quickly become the standard of care for chronic sinusitis. This is due to several factors, including:
Balloon Sinuplasty requires no surgical incisions. It is performed simply and under IV sedation, resulting in high success rates and minimal side effects
There is no removal of tissue, cartilage, bone, or mucous membranes from your nasal cavity. Rather, the balloon catheter reshapes your sinuses in a safe, effective manner
Significantly reduced aftercare – while your body needs time to heal (usually a day or less), there is no need for complicated follow up procedures
Due to these factors, Balloon Sinuplasty is one of the safest surgical procedures you can receive. There is a minimal risk for infection, tissue damage, scarring, or any other common worries
These are just some of the reasons that Balloon Sinuplasty has become such a popular treatment. So, what benefits can you expect after receiving treatment at South Florida Sinus and Allergy Center? A whole host, including:
Reduced or eliminated sinusitis symptoms
Relief from facial and sinus pressure
