Lakeland, FL – According to the Centers for the Disease Control and Prevention, over 12% of adults in the United States have been diagnosed with chronic sinusitis issues. Characterized by symptoms ranging from pain, pressure, aches, congestion, sore throat, nausea and fatigue, chronic sinusitis can severely impair a person’s quality of life.
Watson Clinic’s team of otolaryngologists (ENT) and facial plastic & reconstructive surgeons can dramatically reduce or eliminate these symptoms for patients who qualify for a revolutionary in-office balloon sinuplasty procedure.
The procedure utilizes technology that safely and effectively widens sinus openings, allows for less restricted breathing, and diminishes the painful symptoms of this common condition.
“Chronic sinusitis is often treated using medications,” says board-certified otolaryngologist and facial plastic surgeon Raam S. Lakhani, MD. “However, a significant percentage of patients may not respond favorably to these medications. For these patients, balloon sinuplasty could be the answer.”
During the brief procedure, the treatment area is numbed. Then a small balloon is placed into the sinus cavity and inflated, permanently opening the sinuses so they can function normally. As a minimally invasive in-office solution, balloon sinuplasty is completely quickly with minimal hassle, little or no discomfort and no downtime.
Balloon sinuplasty is offered by each member of Watson Clinic’s ENT and Facial Plastic Surgery departments, including Serge Jean, MD, PhD, Raam S. Lakhani, MD, Jeffrey A. Paffrath, MD and Pranay C. Patel, MD. The procedure can be performed at Watson Clinic Bella Vista Building at 1755 N. Florida Avenue and at Watson Clinic Highlands at 2300 E. County Road 540A both in Lakeland. Please call 863-680-7486 to schedule an appointment.
