Millions of Americans suffer from chronic sinus issues. Medications and other therapies prove ineffective, and they are left with few options for relief. A revolutionary procedure called balloon sinuplasty can be life changing.
The procedure involves the use of a local anesthetic so that a small catheter can be placed in the sinuses. A balloon is inflated, displacing bones in the sinus and offering better drainage.
In Palm Beach County, Florida, there are a number of doctors offering this procedure. Here is a look at the best balloon sinuplasty doctors in Palm Beach County.
