Acute sinusitis can be treated with antibiotics, nasal steroids, and other mild medical treatments. If you’ve tried these treatments, and your sinus infections either keep coming back or never fully heal, you may have a condition called chronic sinusitis. This condition is treatable at our Athens ENT clinic.
Balloon sinuplasty is a gentle in-office procedure that opens the nasal passages to allow proper drainage to occur. Our ENT will first insert a small balloon catheter into the nasal passage, slowly inflate it to open the sinuses, and then gently spray a saline solution to clean out any remaining infection.
