Does Surgery Scare You? It Might Not Be Your Only Chronic or Recurrent Sinusitis Treatment Option!
Is breathing out of your nose a distant memory? Is the congestion in your face making it difficult to make it through a day without pain?
If you answered yes to the questions above, it’s clear that the symptoms stemming from your chronic or recurrent sinusitis have affected your life. You want them to stop, but you don’t want to go through the pain and recovery process required with endoscopic sinus surgery, right?
You are not without options. There are sinusitis treatments that are both effective and less painful than surgery. Explore your options with Dr. Robert Weiss and the team at CT-ENT by scheduling an appointment with our sinus & ENTAllergies center, or continue learning about balloon sinuplasty below.Book Your Appointment Now
What is Balloon Sinuplasty?
Balloon Sinuplasty is a minor procedure that opens blocked sinus pathways by placing and inflating a small balloon-like catheter into the obstructed area. The balloon is then removed, leaving the pathway opened and allowing your sinuses to work properly, and once again flush out bacteria, putting an end to your sinusitis symptoms.
Dr. Weiss and his team will use topical anesthetics to numb your sinuses. He uses a specialized endoscope to locate the treatment area and place a catheter with a very small balloon on the end.
Dilate & Restore
The little balloon is gently inflated to expand and dilate the sinus passageways. When the balloon is deflated and removed, the passages remain open to restore normal sinus drainage.
Balloon Sinuplasty takes about an hour, and patients experience a feeling of immediate relief. They can resume normal activities quickly, and are able to return to work or school within 24 to 48 hours.(4)
Why Choose This Alternative to Endoscopic Sinus Surgery?
Endoscopic sinus surgery is invasive and has a long recovery time, lasting weeks or months. The recovery process includes debridement, which requires a doctor to tear off scabs to prevent scar tissues from obstructing your airway.
Endoscopic Sinus Surgery, which is irreversible, also requires the permanent removal of bone and tissue from your face. While this procedure is commonly the treatment recommended by physicians, a minimally-invasive option may bring you similar results without the pain and long road to recovery.

What our patients are saying...
After seeing their many ads I convinced Dad to "just have a hearing test." I wish he could use the computer himself to say how sorry he was to have waited so long to get help. This is a wonderful group, and it is easy to see that they truly care about us and enjoy what they do, which is help people hear again. Definitely recommend!

I am now able to breathe normally at 100% for the first time in 12 years! On top of that, cosmetically my nose, after having to be re-broken during the procedure looks natural, like it looked before it broke in my accident 12 years ago! Highly recommend if you are having breathing issues due to your nose. You will indeed be a changed person. Staff is awesome, also extremely friendly and welcoming.

I'm cured! Thanks, Dr. Weiss, Michelle, Lisa, and everyone else. I recovered quickly from surgery, and my allergies are clearing up. Feeling great!

If you have any difficulty breathing through your nose or any difficulty with your nose in general, look no further than Dr. Weiss. Dr. Weiss did my surgery on October 5, 2016, which was not as big a deal as I anticipated. Now I can breathe like I've never been able to breathe before. It was the greatest sensation to be able to breathe through my nose. Thank you Dr Weiss for doing an excellent, fantastic, outstanding job.

I am so grateful for this practice! For years and years, I suffered terribly from severe sinus infections brought on by every single little cold I'd catch. Dr. Weiss took the conservative approach with the balloon surgery to expand the access to and from the sinuses. This was painless and required no recovery time...It has been life changing. Dr. Weiss is a caring and skilled doctor to whom I'm grateful for giving me a much better quality of life. The practice, all of the staff members, are caring and fun, and I can't recommend it highly enough!

I wish I could give 10 stars! Our experience could not have been better! Thank you guys, for all the time you took to make my little man hear again. Now he can hear me when I tell him I love him.
