Patients who suffer from chronic sinusitis now have a more convenient option than the traditional operating room setting. Sinus surgery is now being offered “in office”, and under the same roof that you see your physician for your initial consult all the way through to your post-operative visit.
One effective and trending surgery to have in office is the Balloon Sinuplasty (BSP). This procedure is a safe and effective procedure for sinusitis patients who are not responding well to medications and have either had a sinus infection for more than 12 weeks or have four or more sinus infections each year.
There are many benefits to having a Balloon Sinuplasty completed in office rather than in the operating room at a hospital:
- Local Anesthesia
Balloon Sinuplasty In-Office is great option for patients who would like to avoid general anesthesia.
- Fast Recovery
While recovery time varies with each patient, most patients who undergo the in-office procedure can return to normal activities and work within 2 days.
- Comfortable Surroundings
Experience the procedure in the comfort of your physician’s office rather than a hospital operating room.
- High Patient Satisfaction
The majority of patients who had Balloon Sinuplasty In-Office would recommend the procedure to family and friends.
- Potential for Significant Cost Savings
Some eligible patients may have lower out-of-pocket costs if the procedure is performed in a lower cost of care setting, such as a physician’s office.
