Dr. Gergits has extensive experience performing balloon sinuplasty using the OPEN ProcedureSM. Balloon sinuplasty is a minimally invasive procedure performed in the office using local anesthesia and a nasal endoscope containing a camera and a medical-grade balloon.
Dr. Gergits guides the narrow, flexible endoscope through your nostril to the blocked sinus. When the endoscope is at the sinus, the balloon is inflated to clear the blockage. Then he rinses away the mucus inside the sinus and deflates and removes the balloon.
You get long-lasting results because pressure from the inflated balloon gently restructures the shape of the opening, a change that remains even after the balloon is removed. As a result, normal sinus drainage is restored, and your chronic sinusitis goes away.
If you need relief from ongoing sinusitis, call Sinus & Allergy Wellness Center or book an appointment online.
