AM I A CANDIDATE FOR BALLOON SINUPLASTY?
Is Balloon Sinuplasty Right for You?
It Is If You Have These Conditions!
Rhinosinusitis is a common illness that affects over 20 million Americans. Patients with sinusitis visit their doctor more often and have 4-5 times as many prescriptions. Sinusitis accounts for about 23% of all antiobiotic use in the world! Symptoms include chronic runny nose, chronic congestion and snoring.
- Nasal congestion
- Facial pressure and fullness
- Runny nose
- Facial and dental pain
- Headaches (especially when you wake up)
Physicians typically categorize a patient’s type of rhinosinusitis by the duration of their symptoms. If you have any of the above symptoms for more than 6-8 weeks per year than you are a potentially good candidate for balloon sinuplasty and you should make an appointment with your otolaryngology (ear, nose and throat) professional today.
Dr. Wilson DuMornay is Fort Lauderdale’s pre-eminent otolaryngologist and a leading expert on the use of balloon sinuplasty, the very safe and non-invasive surgical procedure that does not require anesthesia and allows patients to return home within an hour after their procedure.
