How Does Balloon Sinuplasty Differ from Traditional Sinus Surgery?

The main difference between BSP and traditional sinus surgery is that BSP is a less invasive treatment option for patients. With traditional sinus surgery, bone and tissue are removed to enlarge the sinus opening, clear blocked sinuses and restore normal sinus drainage. Since traditional sinus surgery is a more invasive surgical procedure, recovery time is longer and patients experience more pain and scarring.
