Balloon Sinuplasty, HarrisonburgSinusitis Treatment: Office Sinuplasty (Sinus Dilation) now offered in Harrisonburg!

Sinusitis sufferers–find instant relief that lasts.

In-office balloon sinuplasty is a minimally invasive option that can be performed by Dr. Alexiou right here, in our Harrisonburg offices. The goal of office sinuplasty is to reshape anatomy to expand sinus pathways and restore drainage.

Here’s how it works:

The procedure utilizes small balloons placed in key places in the nose and sinus, which are then dilated to expand the sinus pathways. It may be an effective, lasting option for some patients whose symptoms do not resolve with medication.

The benefits of office sinus dilation include:

  • Delivers instant, lasting relief [i],[ii]
  • Convenient, comfortable office procedure[iii]
  • Quick recovery—most patients return to normal activity in 24 hours[iv]
  • May reduce healthcare costs
