Office sinus dilation is a minimally invasive option that can be performed by Dr. Troell right here, in our offices. The goal of office sinus dilation is to reshape anatomy to expand sinus pathways and restore drainage. Here's how it works:
The procedure utilizes small balloons placed in key places in the nose and sinus, which are then dilated to expand the sinus pathways. It may be an effective, lasting option for some patients whose symptoms do not resolve with medication.
Dr. Troell is a trained and experienced user of office sinus dilation technologies. Make an appointment today to come to any of our three offices to determine if balloon sinus dilation is right for you.
