Balloon Sinus Dilation: Fast, Safe, Long-lasting Relief from Sinus Pain and Misery

In the past, sinus surgery in the operating room was your only option for treatment of chronic sinusitis that failed to respond to medications.  But in 2005, an advanced, less invasive procedure became available that is clinically proven to improve your quality of life – Balloon Sinus Dilation (balloon sinuplasty).1     The technique was developed from the method that uses tiny balloons to unblock arteries in interventional cardiology.

Since 2005, more than 375,000 patients have been treated safely with balloon sinus dilation procedures.  Most chronic sinusitis patients report clinically meaningful improvement in sinus symptoms and quality of life through 2 years following their procedure.2

If you suffer with chronic sinusitis that has not responded to medications, you may be a candidate for Balloon Sinus Dilation.

Amazing! Personal!

"Can't thank them enough for helping me out.  I was joining the military, and the MEPS doc told me I had to go to a specialist or I can't pass my medical.  Everyone said I had to wait 3-4 weeks, but you guys got me in the same day!  It was extremely important because my job could be taken.  So I am in their debt.  THANK YOU!"

Please note:  because every patient is unique, your results may vary.

The doctors at the Ear, Nose and Throat Clinic are exceptional!

"I have seen both Dr. Getnick and Dr. Tedford, and they are active listeners, empathetic physicians and highly trained and skilled ENT experts.  I feel well cared for by them, and know I am in good hands.”

Please note:  because every patient is unique, your results may vary.

I was glad the receptionist recommended (Clay Ansley) for this appointment

"I didn't know CRNP existed in this practice. I would've had to wait a month to see a doctor. and it would have been unnecessary since this was the correct person to see of my issue."

Please note:  because every patient is unique, your results may vary.

"You have a true gift of being a kind physician.”

"Dr Wudel - I would like to offer a heartfelt thank you for the services you have provided the past few months. Your ability to balance people skills and surgical skills makes a huge difference in the healing process."

Please note:  because every patient is unique, your results may vary.

""Everyone we had any connection with at the ENT Clinic was very professional - but in a cordial, not a stiff way.”

My partner and I always joke about things, and the doctor and nurses appreciated our humor.  I couldn't have asked for a better result from the surgery, and I would recommend Dr. Wudel to anyone.”

Please note:  because every patient is unique, your results may vary.

You don’t have to live with sinus pain anymore.

  1. First, your doctor locates the sinus area to be drained.
  2. After carefully positioning the device, the doctor gently inflates the small balloon to dilate the treatment area.
  3. When the balloon is removed, your sinus passageways remain open to restore drainage and airflow.
