Balloon sinus dilation, otherwise known as "mini-endoscopic sinus surgery," can be used to treat chronic sinusitis, facial pain, nasal congestion, decreased smell and postnasal drip. This minimally invasive technique and conservative approach to sinus treatment helps minimize patient discomfort and shorten recovery time, with less risk compared with conventional sinus surgery. The procedure is typically performed in the office under local anesthesia or used with other surgical techniques under general anesthesia in the operating room, where patients go home the same day.

Otolaryngologist Dr. Lessow treats patients of all ages from the Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan, Midtown Manhattan, Upper East Side, Upper West Side, Harlem and East Harlem, New York. She can help you, too.
