Patients who suffer from chronic sinusitis often deal with extreme discomfort. If medication has not proven to be effective, you may need to take surgical measures to unblock the nasal sinuses. At THE SKIN CENTERx, we take a holistic approach to patient care. Not only do we offer treatments to improve the way you feel about your look, we offer Balloon Sinuplasty™ Technology to improve the way people in Orange County feel about their general health. This is encompassed in the ear, nose, and throat services that Dr. William C. Cohen provides.
The Balloon Sinuplasty™ System
Patients with blocked sinuses may finally find relief in the form of the Balloon Sinuplasty™ System at our state-of-the-art Orange County operating facilities. This endoscopic surgical procedure is ideal for the treatment of sinusitis. Utilizing a tiny and flexible balloon catheter, Dr. Cohen will strategically enlarge your nasal sinus passageways. This effect is achieved by inflating the inserted balloon in order to carefully expand the nasal walls, the purpose being to restore proper drainage of the sinuses.
The Balloon Sinuplasty™ Candidate
Candidates for the Balloon Sinuplasty™ System should exhibit the following symptoms, according to our Orange County surgeon:
- Facial pain, pressure, congestion or fullness
- Difficulty breathing through the nose
- Discharge of yellow or green mucus from the nose
- Teeth pain
- Loss of the sense of smell or taste
- Sore throat
- Bad breath
Those who relate to the aforementioned symptoms are likely affected by sinusitis. Ideally, patients who are seeking relief from the condition will be previously diagnosed with sinusitis. During your consultation, Dr. Cohen will analyze your individual sinusitis case and overall health in order to decide if Balloon Sinuplasty™ is the most appropriate course of treatment for your needs.
