Dr. Chang Featured in Regional Newspaper Regarding Balloon Sinuplasty

Dr. Chang was recently featured inside a regional quarterly newspaper regarding balloon sinuplasty in the treatment of chronic sinusitis.

Sinus surgery has come a long way compared to even just 5-10 years ago and great patient experiences after this type of surgery is not uncommon now.

A few key features of sinus surgery of the 21st century that is provided at Fauquier ENT include:

• Nasal packing rarely occurs
• Most patients are surprised by how little pain there is
• No facial swelling or bruising... your best friend won't be able to tell you just had sinus surgery
• Fast recovery
• No incisions on the face or in the mouth
• GPS-like image guidance to make sinus surgery even safer is available
• In select patients, can even be performed in the office without sedation using local anesthesia only

Balloon sinuplasty is a relatively new innovation that allows sinus surgery to even be performed even more comfortably in the office without any sedation (not all patients are candidates).

Such advanced sinus surgery techniques have been available at Fauquier ENT since 2005.
