Chronic sinus pain treatment

Recurring sinus infections make you miserable

The symptoms never seem to go away…symptoms like:

  • Fatigue
  • Facial pain/pressure
  • Throat irritation
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Annoying runny nose
  • Post-nasal drip

Nothing keeps the pain from coming back and it’s frustrating

You’ve tried it all…

  • Nasal sprays
  • Over-the-counter medications
  • Antibiotics

But nothing has provided lasting relief. There’s a reason.

Standard treatments don’t always treat the root of your recurring sinus pain

Often, recurring sinus infections are caused by an underlying condition like nasal polyps or a narrow sinus passage. This leaves patients vulnerable to recurring pain unless the underlying cause is treated.

At Daniel J. Leeman, MD, we understand this frustration. We offer several in-office treatments that can target your unique underlying cause and bring you lasting relief.

What is Balloon Sinuplasty?

With traditional sinus surgery, the surgeon removes tissue and bone to make the sinus opening bigger to help clear blocked sinuses and restore proper sinus drainage. Also, recovery after a sinus surgery procedure can often involves carring and pain.

With a Balloon Sinuplasty procedure, the surgeon dilates the sinus openings which can clear up any infection and restore normal drainage. On average, the Balloon Sinuplasty procedure takes around an hour.

Other benefits include:

  • No cutting or removal of tissue or bones like traditional sinus surgery
  • Less bleeding
  • Helps preserve healthy mucus membranes, nasal tissues, and structure
  • Lower infection risk than with traditional sinus surgery
  • 95% success rate

How Much Does Balloon Sinuplasty Cost?

Choosing Balloon Sinuplasty over traditional sinus surgeries can save you both money and time. You will have minimal time off work, none of the costs associated with surgery in a hospital, no long recovery, and, best of all, Balloon Sinuplasty is covered by most insurances. In fact, in 2014, the American Academy of Otolaryngology issued a statement calling for all medical insurance companies to consider providing coverage for the cost of the Balloon Sinuplasty procedure.

However, some insurance companies continue to make it difficult to qualify for Balloon Sinuplasty. Several consider it to be an elective procedure that should not be covered.

To find out if your policy covers Balloon Sinuplasty, contact your insurance company. It is always a good idea to check with your insurance company to be sure you understand all of your plan's features.
