Is Balloon Sinuplasty Safe?
This procedure is safer than traditional sinuplasty. It is only minimally invasive, and balloon sinuplasty doesn’t have the risks of bleeding and infection. Post-operative pain is far less. Plus, this treatment doesn’t limit any future treatments or procedures. In other words, you are not burning any bridges if you wind up needing more extensive surgery in the future.
What Anesthesia Is Used?
Dr. Cilento has designed a state of the art facility with an advanced in office operating room. We are currently in the process of accrededation by the AAAASF. We use only board certified anesthesiologists for your safety and comfort.
Balloon Sinuplasty procedures are done right in our office with the patient under only local anesthesia. General anesthesia is still available for those who prefer it. He will discuss your options with you during your consultation and make sure your needs are taken care of.
Balloon Sinuplasty Recovery
Balloon sinuplasty is considered relatively non-invasive, meaning it doesn’t cause much trauma to the nasal area. This makes for minimal recovery time. Most patients can return to work and their normal activities after one day. Dr Cilento will make sure all your airway needs are taken care of in the most efficient and non-invasive way possible.
