Do your sinus infections feel like a broken record?
Do you feel trapped in a cycle of sinus infection, followed by prescription or over-the-counter medication? If so, you may suffer from recurrent sinusitis. This condition can take a significant toll on your quality of life, affecting your work, sleep patterns and social life.
While antibiotics can resolve symptoms for many patients, recurrent sinusitis sufferers still experience frequent outbreaks — four or more times per year. Medical management can address immediate symptoms, but the narrowed drainage pathways remain, increasing the chances for future blockage.

Repeated episodes each lasting 10+ days of pain, pressure and headaches from clogged sinuses
A need for antibiotic, decongestant or antihistamine treatments four or more times a year

This quick procedure opens up the pathways and restores drainage, not only addressing the symptoms, but changing the anatomy that can contribute to repeat outbreaks.Balloon sinus dilation
