Using an innovative and extremely effective way to treat chronic sinusitis, Dr. Kimberly Lee is considered a top provider of Balloon Sinuplasty in Beverly Hills.
Balloon Sinuplasty vs. Traditional Sinus Surgery
In the past, chronic sinusitis was treated in the operating room under general anesthesia, while the surgeon removed bone and tissue that prohibited normal sinus drainage.
In this way, the sinuses were opened, allowing them to drain properly. It was a significant surgical procedure that involved a substantial recovery period.
Balloon Sinuplasty, on the other hand, does not require cutting and surgically removing problematic bone and tissue. Using a small, flexible balloon catheter, Dr. Lee opens up the blocked sinus passageways and facilitates the drainage of clogged mucus. Because the procedure is performed in-office under local anesthesia, it leads to a quicker and much easier recovery period.
