Sinusitis Treatment: In-Office Balloon Sinus Dilation

We are a recognized National Center of Excellence for In-Office Balloon Sinus Dilation

Sinusitis sufferers-find instant relief that lasts. In-office balloon sinus dilation is a minimally-invasive option that can be performed by one of our physicians in our office. The goal of in-office balloon sinus dilation is to reshape anatomy to expand sinus pathways and restore drainage.

How A Little Balloon Restores Sinus Drainage


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 In-office Balloon Sinus Dilation Include:

Delivers instant, lasting relief

Convenient, comfortable office procedure

Quick recovery- most patients return to normal activity in 24 hours

May reduce healthcare costs

Balloon sinus dilation improves sinusitis symptoms
an average of 70% for at least 24 months1

    All staff members were friendly and helpful. Very nice, new facility. Very efficient, no wait time on my appointment. I was told they day before I would have a scope and what the cost would be. After initial exam, it was not needed. So I would say it is a trustworthy place to go.

    Fantastic meeting with Dr. Shah at the Shiloh IL. facility. He was very professional, and approachable. He asked questions, listened to my concerns and answered all of my questions. I would highly recommend him to anyone that needs to see an ENT expert. He exceeded my expectations.

  • Elizabeth Patton-Whiteside
    Being a nurse, I am very PARTICULAR regarding care. My husband has received excellent care from Dr. George. We were introduced at Memorial East ER when I took my husband for a severe nosebleed after exhausting all of my nursing skills to get it under control. Dr. George was very professional, knowledgeable and most of all a terrific bedside manner. Follow up in his private office has also been exceptional from the intake staff and nursing personnel. I highly recommend Dr. George and this facility for treatment.
