Sinus Pain and Pressure Meets its Match in Balloon Sinuplasty - Now Offered at HMHP Physician Associates ENT Practice
Date:7/11/2013

Howland, Ohio (PRWEB) July 11, 2013

A clinically proven, minimally invasive technology used by surgeons who treat chronic sinusitis is now available at Howland Ear, Nose, and Throat, an HMHP Physician Associates practice. The Balloon Sinuplasty System by Acclarent™ uses a small catheter and balloon to quickly open and expand blocked sinuses.

Sinusitis is one of the most common chronic health problems in the U.S., afflicting 37 million Americans each year. Patients suffer headaches, congestion, fatigue and other symptoms. This condition significantly affects an individual’s physical, functional, and emotional quality of life.

Typically, the first treatment for sinusitis is medication. However, at least 20% of patients do not respond adequately to medications. Sinus surgery is often the next step towards finding relief. Conventional sinus surgery requires bone and tissue removal in order to open up blocked sinus passageways. This may lead to post-operative pain and bleeding that requires uncomfortable nasal packing to control.

Now ENT doctors can use minimally invasive sinus balloon catheters to position a balloon into the blocked sinus passageway. The doctor gently inflates the balloon to restructure and open the sinus passageway, facilitating normal sinus drainage and function.

Jared Bunevich, DO is one of the first physicians in this area to offer this technology. “The Balloon Sinuplasty is a true advance in sinus care. In many cases, it can be done without removing any tissue or bone, which means less pain, and a faster recovery,” he says.

Sinusitis patients can learn more about the Balloon Sinuplasty by contacting Howland Ear, Nose, and Throat at 330-856-2520 or by visiting HMpartners.org/sinus.

Howland Ear, Nose, and Throat is located at 1950 Niles-Cortland Rd. NE, Suite 4 in Howland, Ohio.
