If you have chronic sinusitis, you are all too familiar with the symptoms. You might wake up any given day to a stuffy nose, headache, pressure in your face, and even a fever or tooth pain. These can get in the way of your regular activities or your enjoyment of everyday life. There are plenty of approaches to fighting symptoms of sinusitis, but they do not always work. Balloon sinusitis with Southern Indiana ENT can be effective and convenient.
Simple But Short-Lasting Home Remedies
You can easily try breathing in vapor from hot water, or using a warm compress to open up your passageways. Saline drops and over the counter decongestants can also reduce symptoms. However, these are not very strong or long-lasting strategies. When symptoms return repeatedly, you will probably need to see a doctor for a diagnosis and for more effective treatment.
Next-Line Efforts from Your Doctor
Your doctor can work with you to try prescription medications that attack causes of sinusitis and fight the symptoms that you get. You might try nasal sprays or nasal drops to reduce inflammation. Steroids with antibiotics are also common. However, these tend to be temporary solutions.
A Proven Effective Solution
Imagine never needing to worry about your symptoms of chronic sinusitis flaring up again. This may become reality for you, since balloon sinuplasty works in well over 90 percent of patients. The procedure is so widely accepted that most major insurance plans cover it, making it an affordable option in health care. Dr. Anthony D. Sanders & Dr. Nicholas C. Hollenkamp is an expert in providing balloon sinuplasty procedures in Columbus, IN.
More Reasons to Choose Balloon Sinuplasty
As great as being effective is, balloon sinuplasty with Southern Indiana ENT has even more benefits.
- Local rather than general anesthesia, so you can get it even if you have a health condition that prevents you from going under.
- The option of having it done in the office instead of at the hospital, so you can just come to Southern Indiana ENT and relax in the familiar surroundings.
- Rapid recover with return to work and regular activities in two days for many patients.
Balloon sinuplasty also has advantages over traditional sinus surgery, or functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS). It is less invasive, since FESS works by cutting out inflamed tissues from your blocked passages, while balloon sinuplasty promotes natural drainage without removing any of your tissue. This approach makes recovery easier.
