Balloon sinuplasty (BSP) is a safe and effective method for treating acute sinus infections (or sinusitis). Since 2005, balloon sinuplasty has been used to treat over 380,000 patients suffering from sinusitis. The treatment is performed in the comfort of Dr. Eric Cohen’s offices with local anesthesia and requires no hospital stay.
If you are one of the millions of Americans suffering from a chronic or acute sinus infection, you may be a candidate for balloon sinuplasty surgery. Symptoms of sinusitis include:
Often times, treatment with medication and therapies such as saline spray, antibiotics, or steroids will sufficiently treat the symptoms of sinusitis. But when these treatments are not enough, you may benefit from balloon sinuplasty.
The development of minimally invasive procedures, such as balloon sinuplasty, has improved the way otolaryngologists treat sinus symptoms, significantly reducing risks and recovery times. Balloon sinuplasty also comes with a lower out-of-pocket cost because it does not require general anesthesia or inpatient treatment.
Dr. Cohen has been practicing otolaryngology for over 20 years.
Dr. Cohen serves as Medical Director of the Cure Snoring Center and is a member of the American Academy of Otolaryngology. His patients are his top priority and he makes a point of keeping up to date with the latest advances in medical technology to offer them the best possible solutions for their sinus conditions. If you suffer from chronic sinusitis, and/or would like to learn more about the balloon sinuplasty procedure, don’t hesitate to contact Dr. Cohen.
