Patient Testimonials

With over 330,000 patients who have been helped with Balloon Sinuplasty, and hundreds more experiencing it each day, there are many success stories showing it to be a safe and effective procedure that can provide real relief from painful sinusitis symptoms.

Some of these former chronic sinusitis patients suffered repeated sinus infections, and many of them tried multiple sinus treatments, including over-the-counter (OTC) medications and antibiotics, before they experienced Balloon Sinuplasty.
