Balloon Sinuplasty™ Sinusitis Treatment
What Is Balloon Sinuplasty?
Balloon Sinuplasty is a minimally invasive sinus procedure performed on eligible patients who suffer with chronic sinusitis. Small balloons are placed in key places in the nose and sinuses, which are then dilated to expand and widen the sinus passageways. The goal is to reshape anatomy to restore proper drainage. It is proven to be safe and is effective for those who are seeking relief from uncomfortable sinus pain symptoms. Balloon Sinuplasty is less invasive than traditional sinus surgery and involves no cutting, and no removal of bone or tissue.
In-office Balloon Sinuplasty is an option for patients who decline or are ineligible for general anesthesia.
Most people who have had the Balloon Sinuplasty may return to normal activity and work within 24 hours.
More than 380,000 patients have been treated by ENT doctors using Balloon Sinuplasty.
Sinuses & Symptoms
- Maxillary – The cheek sinuses, can cause toothaches or headaches.
- Frontal – Located above the eyes, can cause headaches, especially in the forehead.
- Ethmoidal – Between the eyes, can cause pain to the sides and upper area of the nose and headaches.
- Sphenoidal – Can cause pain behind the eyes.
- All may worsen if you bend or lay down.
If you have at least 4 sinus infections a year or have had a prolonged sinus infection for more than twelve weeks and are not seeing results from medications, Balloon Sinuplasty may be the best treatment option for you.
How a balloon restores sinus drainage
1. BLOCKED SINUS PATHWAY
2. BALLOON INFLATED
Dr Roth first locates the sinus area to be treated The Device is carefully positioned
3. DRAINAGE RESTORED
The balloon is gently inflated and dilates the
treatment area to restore drainage. The balloon
is removed from the treatment area.

What Is Eustachian Tube Balloon Dilation?
Many of the current treatment options for Eustachian tube dysfunction are limited or invasive, but a newer treatment option using balloon dilation can restore Eustachian tube function and relieve symptoms. The XprESS™ ENT Dilation System provides a safe, effective, and less invasive treatment for people with Eustachian tube dysfunction.
During this procedure, your doctor will insert a small balloon through your nose and into your Eustachian tube. The balloon will then be gently inflated, and after treatment, removed. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia.
Coblation® tonsillectomy & adenoidectomy is a gentle way to remove both tonsils and adenoids. Coblation tonsillectomy & adenoidectomy uses radiofrequency, or RF, to remove tonsillar & adenoidal tissue. RF is a form of energy like radio waves, but with a higher frequency. Coblation tonsillectomy & adenoidectomy uses this energy in a precise and carefully controlled surgical process that causes very little harm to healthy tissue. Published studies have shown Coblation tonsillectomy & adenoidectomies to have the following patient benefits:
- Less pain and less frequent use of narcotics
- Significantly faster return to normal diet (2.4 days versus 7.6 days on average)
- Less incidence of postoperative nausea and throat swelling
- Less thermal damage to adjacent tissue
- Faster healing

LATERA® Sleep Procedure
The Latera® sleep procedure uses an absorbable nasal implant. This specialized implant is structured to be inserted by a physician. When positioned correctly, it anchors above the maxilla to provide cantilever support to the upper and lower lateral cartilage.
LATERA® may help you breathe better with little risk of changes to appearance. LATERA® showed significant quality-of-life improvement for nasal obstruction patients with lateral wall or nasal valve collapse, as measured by the NOSE survey. Patients experienced a reduction in nasal obstruction symptoms of 57.7% at 2 years, as measured by the NOSE survey. Patients achieved these results without negative cosmetic effects.
A clinical study shows that LATERA patients demonstrate:
- Reduced nasal congestion or stuffiness
- Less trouble breathing through the nose
- Improved ability to get enough air through the nose during exercise or exertion
- Reduced nasal blockage or obstruction
- Less trouble sleeping
