If sinus infections are a regular occurrence for you, there are certain aspects of this time of year that you may not be looking forward to. The colder months tend to bring more germs and viruses with them, which only increases the risk and frequency of sinusitis. With that said, Southern Indiana ENTspecializes in a wonderful and effective solution for those who suffer from chronic sinusitis. Balloon Sinuplasty is a short, in-office procedure that has a quick recovery time and provides immediate, lasting relief for acute sinus pressure.
It may seem counterintuitive to recommend an outpatient procedure right before the end of the year with all of the busyness of the holidays quickly approaching, but now is actually the perfect time to look into Balloon Sinuplasty. If you think you may be a good candidate for this procedure, here are 3 reasons to look into Balloon Sinuplasty right now:
It’s more cost effective
If you have met your deductible for the year, now is the perfect time to look into this procedure. Depending on your plan and coverage, this could mean that most of (and in some cases, all of) the procedure would be covered by your insurance. Contact our Columbus, IN office or your insurance provider for more concrete details on what this might look like for you.
It can help during cold and flu season
People who suffer from chronic sinusitis often have to miss significant amounts of work due to illness. As a result of this procedure, your nasal sinuses should be healthy and draining properly, breaking the cycle of inflammation, blockage, infection, and pressure that comes with chronic sinus infections. While the procedure cannot ensure that you will never encounter a cold or flu virus, your chances of recovering quicker are greatly increased if your sinuses are draining properly.
Feel better before the holidays
Many patients report feeling better immediately, and with a quick and mild recovery period of less than one week, you’ll be back to normal in no time. Balloon Sinuplasty can improve your quality of life by ending chronic sinus infections, allowing you to breathe easier and sleep better, meaning you’ll feel much better just in time for the holidays.
