As leaders in their field, the sinus surgeons at Capital Otolaryngology (Capoto) helped design the technology for balloon sinuplasty and were some of the first in the world to implement the cutting-edge procedure. Balloon sinuplasty has helped many of their patients, who were unable to find relief from chronic sinusitis, to finally break free from painful sinus symptoms and experience long-lasting results.
Balloon Sinuplasty is Minimally Invasive
95 percent of patients who have the procedure say they would have it again. An effective, minimally invasive treatment for sinus problems, balloon sinuplasty is performed in their high-tech and well-equipped Central Texas offices as an outpatient procedure. The patient can return to work or school soon afterward, as there is minimal downtime associated with the procedure.
What Does the Procedure Entail?
During the procedure, a tiny balloon catheter is inserted into your nose and the balloon is inflated to both clear mucus blockages as well as restructure passageways to allow for better drainage. There are no incisions or removal of any tissue with this technique, unlike with traditional sinus surgery.
How Did Kulture Help?
Our goal was to capture a typical balloon sinuplasty procedure to show people how easy it is. Fear of the unknown is a big reason why people don’t like to visit doctors, and we want to show them that there is nothing to be afraid of. The doctors at Capoto are highly skilled and will take the time to answer questions and help make patients feel comfortable.
