Minimally Invasive Sinus Procedures
Don’t let pain, long recovery times, and risks associated with surgery prevent you from the sinus relief you deserve!
When you’ve spent weeks, months, or even years dealing with sinus issues, you begin to forget what it’s like to breathe easily from your nose and go through your day without painful and obstructive symptoms.
Have you forgotten what it’s like to breathe without issues? What symptoms do you face regularly as a result?
- Stuffiness and congestion
- Postnasal drip
- Feeling tired (fatigue)
- Loss of sense of smell
Sinusitis sufferers delay relief out of the fear of surgery or because they can’t afford to take several weeks off of work to recover from an invasive procedure. Surgery is no longer your only option to solve the problems obstructing your airways and causing chronic congestion and sinus infections.
Avoiding surgery and finding relief from the sinus issues causing you pain and discomfort is possible! Schedule your appointment or continue reading below to learn about the minimally invasive options available at Illinois Sinus Center.
Minimally invasive sinus procedures from Illinois Sinus Center
Illinois Sinus Center believes that relief can almost always be achieved without an invasive procedure. Although surgeries can be necessary if there are severe issues, minimally invasive procedures are efficient and effective, and can get you back to breathing comfortably out of your nose and back on your feet in no time.
Minimally invasive sinus procedures available at Illinois Sinus Center include balloon sinuplasty, turbinate reduction methods, and nasal obstruction treatment (VIVAER Nasal Airway Remodeling).
A safe and minimally invasive sinusitis solution, balloon sinuplasty is clinically-proven to clear blockages in the sinus pathways, creating long-lasting relief from sinus pain. Through a simple, in-office procedure, you will be able to avoid painful, invasive sinus surgery while gaining relief from sinusitis with the aid of a small balloon. The balloon is inserted, inflated, and removed by an ear, nose, and throat (ENT) doctor, and you will be able to resume normal activities within 24-48 hours.Learn MoreSchedule an Appointment
When the turbinates inside your nose expand from swelling or irritation, your nasal airways become obstructed. Without the space needed for air to flow in and out or your nose, you will be forced to breathe from your mouth, your sleep may diminish, and your energy levels will decrease as a result.
There are several forms of turbinate reduction, which your doctor will discuss with you to find the option that best first your wants and needs. Minimally invasive turbinate reduction options include radiofrequency turbinate reduction (RFTR).
Nasal Obstruction Treatment
VIVAER is a minimally invasive alternative to sinus surgery that reshapes the tissue in your nasal airways during a low-temperature remodeling process. Once the airway is carefully reshaped, patients can experience long-term relief from sinusitis and regain the ability to breathe in and out of their nose fully.
VIVAER is a single nasal airway remodeling procedure that is proven to be effective, completed under local anesthesia in a doctor’s office, and completed in minutes.
