Atlanta, GA -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/27/2014 -- The Sinus Institute of Atlanta (5670 Peachtree Dunwoody Rd NE, Suite 1280, Atlanta, GA 30342, T: (404) 257- 7212 http://www.sinusinstituteatlanta.com ) announced today that they have created a Balloon Sinuplasty division of their highly acclaimed specialized ENT practice.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported that over 30 million adults are diagnosed by an ENT with sinusitis yearly. Women are almost twice as likely as men to receive the sinusitis diagnosis. There are more cases of sinusitis diagnosed by ENTs in the southern United States, such as Atlanta, Georgia, than elsewhere in the country.
Dr. Pradeep Sinha, a double board certified surgeon who spearheads the Balloon Sinuplasty division stated, “Atlanta, Georgia, ENTs treat a significant amount of sinusitis cases; much more than other states in America. Atlanta’s climate and topography bread the diagnosis. Balloon Sinuplasty is an answered prayer for many of our patients who suffer from chronic sinusitis”.
Chronic sinusitis is a common medical condition diagnosed by ENT’s (Ear, Nose, and Throat Doctors) which draws patients to The Sinus Institute of Atlanta. With sinusitis, a condition diagnosed by an ENT specialist, the cavities around nasal passages (sinuses) become inflamed and swollen and causes discomfort for at least eight weeks (despite infected sinus treatment attempts).
With Balloon Sinuplasty, the Atlanta, Georgia ENT doctors open inflamed sinuses to unblock them. The painless and quick procedure involves the ENT’s using a fine catheter which they insert into the affected sinuses which is then inflated to high pressures which results in the widening of the natural drainage pathways. This allows resolution of the blocked sinus cavities and in turn alleviates the patient’s symptoms. Data published in multitudes of leading Ear, Nose, and Throat (ENT) medical journals shows that the treatment is safe and effective: study participants received a significant and measurable relief from their symptoms.
Balloon Sinuplasty, http://www.sinusinstituteatlanta.com/balloon-sinuplasty, a treatment which is covered by almost all healthcare insurance providers, is a non-surgical in office procedure. In several published studies including one of over 1000 patients who underwent the Balloon Sinuplasty procedure to rid their chronic sinusitis, the rate of serious complications has been shown to be less than one third of that associated with conventional sinus surgery (FESS). Unpublished data from the manufacturer of over 250,000 operations also confirms the lack of complications and the long term success rate.
