(WEST PALM BEACH, FL) APRIL 29, 2016— Ear, Nose & Throat Associates of South Florida, P.A. and Fix Your Sinuses are pleased to announce that patients can now take advantage of the power of PROPEL technology as they find relief from chronic sinus pain through balloon sinuplasty.
PROPEL is an important new addition to the array of technology used in balloon sinuplasty in Palm Beach. It is a dissolvable stent that can be used to hold the nasal passages open after the procedure. As the stent dissolves, it releases anti-inflammatory drugs that can help reduce the risk of some of the complications that can arise from the procedure.
In clinical trials, PROPEL has been shown safe and is the only sinus surgery product proven with level 1-A evidence as to its effectiveness and safety. It reduces scarring, inflammation, and polyps while also lowering the need for oral steroid medication or further surgery.
Balloon sinuplasty cost can be driven by many factors, and it is important to consult with a physician to find out if your insurance plan covers the procedure. Because it is performed under a local anesthetic in an office setting, the cost is less than a more invasive procedure in an operating room.
