Find Relief from Sinus Pain and Pressure

If you suffer from sinus pain and pressure and have not found a treatment that works, you may be a candidate for a less invasive sinus surgery, called Balloon Sinuplasty.


Balloon Sinuplasty is a breakthrough procedure offered at UnityPoint Health - Trinity. Sinuplasty is proven to be safe and effective with a much shorter recovery time than traditional sinus surgery. This technique will relieve chronic sinusitis and recurring sinus infections.


Benefits of Balloon Sinuplasty:

  • Minimally invasive - The technology uses small, soft, flexible devices introduced entirely through the nostrils. These devices gently open blocked sinuses.
  • Safe and effective - While use of any surgical instrument involves some risk, studies demonstrate that the Balloon Sinuplasty procedure is safe and effective in relieving sinusitis symptoms.
  • Reduced bleeding - No tissue or bone is removed during surgery using this technology, leading to reduced bleeding.
  • Fast recovery time - While recovery time varies with each patient, some patients have been known to return to normal activities within 24 hours.

How to determine if you are a candidate for the Balloon Sinuplasty procedure:

This cannot be determined over the phone. It is recommended that you schedule an appointment with an Ear, Nose and Throat physician who specializes in this procedure to assess your symptoms and give you a recommendation for treatment.
