    In the past, "traditional" surgery for chronic sinusitis meant making a hole in the sinuses using cutting or biting instruments so that the sinuses could drain more easily. Now a less invasive procedure called Balloon Sinuplasty is our first choice to be performed in the vast majority of our patients. Balloon Sinuplasty is much less invasive, has as good or better results than "traditional" surgery and can be performed either in the office or in surgery.
