Sinus Relief with Balloon Sinuplasty
Balloon Sinuplasty is a gentle procedure used to treat chronic sinusitis, or chronic sinus infection. Las Cruces patients who suffer from chronic sinusitis often experience sinus pressure and pain, headaches, and congestion for a period of 12 weeks of longer. If it seems like you’ve tried every other treatment for sinusitis—antibiotics, nasal sprays, steroids, etc.— to no avail, Balloon Sinuplasty may be right for you.
The procedure involves no cutting, but instead uses a small balloon catheter that gently inflates to open the nasal passage. Once the passage is opened, the sinuses are allowed to drain properly, eliminating pressure and infection.
Balloon Sinuplasty has brought many of our Las Cruces patients long-term relief from sinus pressure. Since it is a gentle procedure that involves no cutting, they are able to return quickly to normal activities.
Dr. McMillan is a Board-Certified ENT with years of experience working solely with nose and sinus related cases. If you think you could be a candidate for Balloon Sinuplasty, contact our ENT office in Las Cruces, NM today.
Balloon Sinuplasty Testimonial
My name is Robert Tellez and about 13 months ago I began having problems with my sinuses. I was experiencing some swelling and drainage problems that continued for a period of time and then I realized that I was having trouble sleeping at night. Not being able to concentrate, like I normally do, and that was affecting me at work. These symptoms continued for over a year I had been experiencing this for about 13 months at this point.
After several rounds of sinus medications and antibiotics I realized that this wasn’t something that I want to experience for the rest of my life. And talking to several people in town, Doctor McMillan’s name came up and I finally made this appointment. I came in to Doctor McMillan and I felt very very secure with him. He explained everything thoroughly and we both decided that sinuplasty would be something that would be very beneficial to myself.
My experience with sinuplasty was totally uplifting. I had fears. Doctor McMillan explained the procedure. We went through with it. I have to say to this day I have been very happy with this procedure. I have been free from all meds, all sinus sprays. It’s probably been around a good six months now. I have to say this is something I would definitely do for myself all over again if the occasion occurred. It’s a simple procedure. The procedure itself was very pleasant, I was very surprised. Made me feel very relaxed in the office along with his nurse. I’m experiencing no difficulty. It was very relaxing and it almost felt like I almost went to sleep as a matter of fact. That’s how easy it was for me.
My symptoms after sinuplasty have been amazing. I used to struggle breathing, falling asleep, energy level, fatigue. Now I have been able to continue my lifestyle like a normal person. I am back at the gym, I feel healthy. I get told a lot by people how wonderful I look, because they saw me through this period of time and how it affected me. This is something that I would highly recommend to everybody. Sinuplasty was definitely the best thing for me and my lifestyle.
