Dr Ronald A Krueger is one of the pioneers of a new form of sinusitis treatment that implements a new, less invasive approach while achieving superior results.
Mukilteo, WA -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/29/2014 -- Sinusitis can be painful and even debilitating when chronic, and medical professionals are often frustrated by the lack of effective treatment options. Too often patients are left suffering when the sinuses do not respond to traditional medication based approaches, but sinuplasty is an invasive and potentially dangerous procedure. Thankfully, pioneers like Dr Ronald A Krueger have developed a new method known as balloon sinuplasty inspired by angioplasty, which uses a balloon to dilate closed up arteries in the heart. Dr. Krueger was identified as one of 13 research sites in 2012 for Balloon Sinuplasty
Balloon Sinuplasty is safe and less invasive than previous approaches, inserting a balloon into the sinus which is then inflated to dilate sinuses without the need for the cutting of nasal bone or tissue. The results are long lasting, causing a meaningful improvement for up to two years after the procedure.
What’s more, it can be recovered from in just two days, and in-office procedures can be carried out under local anesthesia. Dr Ronald A Krueger is a pioneer of this particular method of treating sinusitis and offers in-office procedures that can transform the lives of those suffering with chronic sinusitis. Dr. Krueger is also a plastic surgeon and is one of a handful of surgeons in Washington who have their surgical work evaluated by the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgeons.
The procedures are offered at the Northwest Sleep and Sinus Clinic, which is the premier cosmetic practice in Snohomish County. Dr. Krueger’s 18 years of experience at The Everett Clinic and as Medical Director of The Facial Rejuvenation Center allowed him to move into his own practice and begin leading the field in new and emerging procedures.
A spokesperson for Dr Ronald A Krueger explained, “Dr. Krueger has been an outstanding leader in the practice because he is also a leader in his field. The doctor offers excellent and cutting edge treatment options to patients and oversees two distinct practices, the Northwest Sleep and Sinus Clinic and Krueger Aesthetics. His cross-disciplinary knowledge is a key element in his ability to innovate and perfect new procedures and Balloon Sinuplasty is already making a huge difference to hundreds of patients across America.”
