Do you struggle with sinus problems? Is medication not working? If so, it may not be the medication, but an underlying structural problem, meaning the medications can't get in the nose where they can work. If you’ve tried every type of medication and still aren’t feeling better, it might be time to consider a Ballon Sunuplasty Procedure. 

Balloon Sinuplasty (BSP) is just one of the many procedures offered by Dr. Atkins, along with other new minimally invasive techniques such as TruDi BSP. Dr. Atkins can combine balloon sinus dilation with other procedures that promise less pain, less downtime, and improved outcomes for the patient.  Even better, many of these can be performed in our office under local or IV anesthesia — no hospitalization required and are covered by most major insurance plans.

What sets TruDi Ballon Sinuplasty apart from the rest? 

  • TruDi uses computerized guidance to thread a small compressed balloon into blocked sinus passages.
  • Once the balloon position is confirmed with TruDi, the balloon is inflated for a few seconds.
  • The sinus passages are widened by the inflated balloon. The widened passages stay open over 90 percent of the time, allowing for better sinus drainage and decreased symptoms.
  • Since we are dilating and not removing tissue, there is minimal bleeding and a very quick recovery.
  • TruDi will help cut down on the number of infections you are having and will also help you breathe better
