Sinusitis Treatment: Balloon Sinuplasty now offered in Torrance and Santa Monica

Sinusitis sufferers–find instant relief that lasts

Office sinus dilation (balloon sinuplasty) is a minimally invasive option that can be performed by Dr. Daneshrad right here, in our offices. The goal of office sinus dilation (balloon 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.
