Ask Super Doctors

Dr. Marc R. Dean, MD (Doctor Profile)

Question: I suffer from chronic sinusitis, and medications haven't made much of a difference. I have been told I need sinus surgery, but I have heard horror stories and am hesitant to undergo the procedure-are there any other options?

Answer: Recent studies have shown Balloon Sinuplasty to be an effective alternative to traditional sinus surgery. With Balloon Sinuplasty, doctors are able to open inflamed sinuses in the same way that heart surgeons open up blocked arteries. Unlike conventional sinus surgery, this minimally invasive procedure is performed in office under mild sedation and does not involve any cutting or removal of tissue from the nose. It also allows patients to return to normal activities quickly, usually within two days.
