Balloon sinus dilation by Entellus (or balloon sinuplasty) is a convenient, minimally invasive sinus treatment. It requires no cutting, which minimizes bleeding and pain, and allows for speedy recovery with minimal downtime. This powerful procedure can effectively treat and eliminate one of the major causes of chronic sinus infection and sinusitis. Patients experience long-lasting relief from sinus pain. The procedure is performed in the offices of CT ENT Sinus Center by our team of sinus care professionals.Balloon Sinuplasty FAQs
Restore Your Sinus Health Fast
Most patients should expect to experience less pain than with traditional sinus procedures and return to normal daily activities more quickly.
The procedure involves 3 key steps:
- After making the patient comfortable by numbing the inside of the nose, the doctor inserts a small balloon catheter into the blocked sinus.
- The balloon is gently inflated for about 5 seconds, gradually expanding and reshaping the sinus passageway to improve drainage.
- The balloon is then deflated and removed, leaving the sinus clean, open, and undamaged.
Enjoy Long-Lasting Relief from Sinus Pain
Balloon Sinuplasty has been clinically-proven to provide relief from painful sinus symptoms for 94% of patients who undergo the procedure. On average, about 6 patients in every 100 will require another procedure.

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!

Dr. Sheldon Greenberg took care of my deviated septum in my nose, and 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.
