Balloon Sinuplasty

Best ENT Hospital for Balloon Sinuplasty in Hyderabad: Unmatched Expertise and Superior Solutions with Dr. G V S Rao, Dr. G V K Chaitanya Rao and Dr. Shree Rao.

Tiny telescopes called endoscopes revolutionised nasal and sinus surgery by letting the rhinologists or sinus surgeons ‘observe’ the insides of nasal and sinus passages. Newer advances – such as the balloon dilating catheter and its adaptation to sinus surgery – are improving sinus surgeries’ effectiveness and accuracy.

There are two ways of using the balloon dilating catheter: –

  • Like any other instrument or tool used during functional endoscopic sinus surgery where it is employed as a minimally invasive tool during a tissue removal procedure.
  • Like a stand-alone procedure where only the balloon (no other instrumentation) is used to open a sinus and no tissue is actually removed from the level of the sinus opening.

Conditions treated

  • Chronic sinusitis

Why this surgery?

For treating chronic sinusitis that has shown an insufficient response to long-term medical management including antibiotic courses.
