Potential Chronic Sinusitis Relief without Surgery

  1. 1. Potential Chronic Sinusitis Relief without Surgery By Angelo Consiglio
  2. 2. Introduction • As an experienced ear, nose, and throat physician, Dr. Angelo Consiglio has treated numerous patients who come to him with sinusitis. Angelo Consiglio, MD, currently practices at Miami's Jordan Hospital, where he uses balloon sinus dilation as his primary treatment for the condition. According to the Centers for Disease Control, approximately 32 million people in the United States have chronic sinusitis. The disease causes continuing infection or inflammation of the sinus linings and does not respond effectively to medical interventions such as steroid sprays or antibiotics.
  3. 3. Chronic Sinusitis Relief • Surgery may help many of these patients, although traditional sinus surgeries involve surgical removal of tissue and thus require cutting into the sinuses. Balloon sinus dilation, by contrast, is noninvasive and can open the nasal passages without the bleeding and pain associated with surgery. The physician simply inserts a small balloon into the blocked sinus. When the balloon is inflated, the bone and sinus lining shift and the nasal passages open up. Thus far, the procedure has alleviated sinusitis symptoms in 95 percent of patients and removed infection in 74 percent of cases.
