Interested in Balloon Sinuplasty, but not all the hurdles that go along with surgery? You’re in luck! Our Munster ENTs now offer this procedure as a simple in-office procedure with only a local anesthesia. Your physician will recommend the best approach for you.
Benefits of Balloon Sinuplasty In-Office (BSPIO)
No Need for General Anesthesia
Because of the gentle nature of the procedure, general anesthesia is not necessary, making this a great option for patients who are not eligible to use it.
While recovery time varies with each patient, most patients who undergo the in-office procedure can return to normal activities and work within 2 days.1
BSP can be done in our comfortable office setting rather than a cold, uncomfortable operating room.
High Patient Satisfaction
Balloon Sinuplasty boasts a very high rate of patient satisfaction. In fact, most patients say that they would recommend the treatment to family and friends. 1
Potential for Significant Cost Savings
Procedures done in an office setting can cost less out-of-pocket for the patient.
