Balloon sinuplasty is a minimally invasive surgical tool for treating chronic sinusitis. This technology uses a small catheter and balloon to quickly open and expand blocked sinuses. Balloon sinuplasty makes sinus surgery safer and recovery time faster.

WVU Medicine has this technology, and our otolaryngologists have the advanced training to perform balloon sinuplasty.

Balloon sinuplasty has numerous benefits:

  • It restores the natural drainage patterns in the nose and sinuses.
  • There are no external incisions.
  • It usually is performed as outpatient surgery.

The addition of computer-assisted sinus surgery and balloon sinuplasty makes the WVU Sinus Center one of the most advanced centers in the country for performing surgery on the sinuses.
