Balloon Sinuplasty for Chronic Sinusitis (in-Office Treatment)

Balloon Sinuplasty is a minimally invasive sinus procedure now available to eligible patients performed by Dr. Bublik at his Glendale, CA office under local anesthesia. Dr. Bublik also is happy to provide in office Balloon Sinuplasty to patients throughout the Los Angeles area.

This remarkable sinusitis treatment has achieved consistently outstanding results for countless patients, while requiring little or no anesthesia and minimal recovery time. This treatment is performed in place of more invasive and aggressive surgeries that involve general anesthesia with lengthy recovery processes.

If you suffer from chronic sinusitis, you know that this condition can seriously impact your quality of life, causing a range of symptoms from sinus headaches to fatigue and halitosis (bad breath). It's a condition that should be addressed and this new and surprisingly simple treatment is, for many people, the best way to address it. Most health insurance companies will cover all or part of balloon sinuplasty cost under most circumstances. This innovative procedure can be performed by Dr. Bublik right here in our Los Angeles office in as little as 20 minutes!

What is Balloon Sinuplasty™?

When performing balloon sinuplasty, Dr. Bublik will insert a catheter through the opening of the nose into the sinus opening and then thread a sinus guide wire into the targeted sinus, providing light transmission and illumination that will help Dr. Bublik ensure correct placement of the guide catheter. Once access to the intended location is confirmed, tiny balloons are placed in key places in the nose and sinuses, which are then dilated to expand and widen the sinus passageways. The goal is to reshape anatomy to restore proper drainage. Simple. No tissue removal. No bleeding. No pain.

Balloon Sinuplasty: Difference between this and other treatments

The benefits of In–Office Balloon Sinuplasty performed by Dr. Bublik represent a marked improvement over traditional sinus surgery, which are performed with general anesthesia and involve a longer recovery with more postoperative care requirements.

As groundbreaking as the balloon sinuplasty procedure is, the quality of the physician performing it is also crucial. Dr. Bublik was one of the first surgeons in the country to work with Balloon technology when it was in its developmental phases. Dr. Bublik also trained with leading experts and international renowned sinus surgeons and has implemented their techniques in his own practice. With many years of experience studying and working with sinus-related concerns, including sinusitis, nasal congestion, and allergies, Dr. Bublik is the type of ear, nose, and throat (ENT) doctor in Glendale and Los Angeles surrounding areas patients trust and seek out. He is a widely respected surgeon and medical specialist with a tremendous amount of experience, making him the sinus surgeon that patients seek out not only for primary sinus surgery and in-office balloon sinuplasty, but also for more complicated REVISION SINUS SURGERY.

While the in-office balloon sinuplasty procedure can be an exceptionally effective way to clear sinuses for many patients, Dr. Bublik points out that it is not necessarily the right choice for everyone and therefore a comprehensive consultation with Dr. Bublik is performed prior to any procedure. In general, however, patients diagnosed with chronic sinusitis who are not responding well to medications may be candidates for sinus surgery with the balloon technology.

For questions regarding balloon sinuplasty, in-office balloon sinuplasty, sinus surgery, chronic sinusitis, or any other ear, nose and throat concern, please do not hesitate to contact Dr. Bublik’s office. You will find the office and office staff pleasant, welcoming, and as many patients have pointed out, “not your typical doctors office.”
