In-Office Balloon Sinuplasty

In-Office Balloon Sinuplasty is a minimally invasive treatment for chronic or recurrent sinusitis. Balloon Sinuplasty safely and effectively dilates sinus openings, resulting in relief from sinus symptoms.

Benefits of the Procedure:

  • Delivers instant, lasting relief
  • Can be conducted comfortably without general anesthesia, meaning that food and drink are typically permitted prior to the procedure
  • Limited downtime, as most procedures last less than 60 minutes and most people return to their normal activities within 2 days
  • Can reduce healthcare costs through savings on antibiotics and steroids for sinusitis or avoiding operating room surgery

ATTENTION!

 

Pertaining to COVID-19 Testing:

Due to critical shortages of supplies, St. Margaret’s Health is no longer testing walk-in patients for COVID-19; a physician’s order IS REQUIRED. If you have been exposed to COVID-19, please isolate at home, wear a mask and IF symptoms develop, contact your physician to request an order to be tested.

Having symptoms? In order to be tested for COVID-19, Influenza (Flu), Strep, RSV, or to receive a Respiratory Array test, patients MUST have a doctor’s order. Contact your medical care provider. Please DO NOT visit the testing center in Spring Valley without a physician’s order, OR visit an Emergency Department for testing.

There are many sites throughout the Illinois Valley that are still currently testing without physician’s orders, although appointments may be required.  Please refer to local pharmacies and health departments websites, or visit https://coronavirus.illinois.gov/testing-sites for more information.

Thank you!
