Anyone who suffers from chronic sinusitis knows how miserable it can make you feel. Sinusitis can result in facial pain or pressure, headaches, congestion, fatigue and more—not to mention the frustration of never finding a treatment that works.
Finally, there’s good news for the 37 million people in the U.S. who suffer from sinusitis. It’s called Balloon Sinuplasty—a minimally invasive, FDA-approved procedure that has proven to be highly effective at improving the quality of life for sinus sufferers.
The technology uses small, soft, flexible devices that enter entirely through the nostrils. These devices gently open blocked sinus openings, typically without the tissue or bone removal that is required in more invasive sinus surgery.
Clinical studies have shown the Balloon Sinuplasty system to be safe and effective in relieving symptoms of sinusitis. The service can be performed in office, and the patient may return to normal activities within 24 hours.
ENT Clinic of Iowa is proud to announce that our very own Dr. Douglas Hoisington has become the first ENT physician to be In-Office Balloon Sinuplasty certified in the Des Moines area.
