Balloon Sinuplasty

Do you suffer with allergies that medications do not seem to help? If your nasal sinuses are severely blocked, you may have chronic sinusitis and be a good candidate for a Balloon Sinuplasty™. The endoscopic procedure uses a small, flexible balloon catheter to enlarge sinus passageways and is now available locally.

For many patients, a balloon sinuplasty can be conducted in a doctor’s office under local anesthesia. Locally, Dr. Blair performs the procedure in his Live Oak Health Partners office and at CTMC. To see if you’re a candidate for the procedure, or to inquire about allergy testing and treatments, call 512-353-6400 for an appointment.
