Balloon Sinus Dilation: Cost-Effective Sinus Relief
About Balloon Sinus Dilation
We may prescribe saline or nasal spray or medication as an initial treatment for chronic sinusitis. But if these techniques fail, Dr. Sigari may recommend sinus surgery.
Traditional sinus surgery happens in a hospital, has long recovery times and usually causes pain and discomfort. But now there is an advanced, new treatment for sinus conditions: balloon sinus dilation (also called Balloon Sinuplasty). This breakthrough, minimally invasive procedure dramatically reduces both recovery time and pain. Balloon sinus dilation is a safe, effective in-office procedure. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the technique in 2005 and doctors worldwide have helped hundreds of thousands of patients since to breathe better.
How Much Does Balloon Sinus Dilation Cost?
Patients often ask us, how much does balloon sinus dilation cost? Because every patient’s condition is unique, we can’t quote an exact cost for your sinus dilation procedure. We can give you an approximate range of costs once we assess your condition and have determined that you are a candidate for balloon sinus dilation.
Insurance Coverage and Insurance Contribution
Dr. Sigari and the physicians of Del Rey Sinus & Allergy Institute are in-network for most insurance carriers. For your out-of-pocket costs, your insurance plan and level of coverage determine how much of the total cost your insurer will pay. Our office can review your coverage levels – please see our insurance verification page.
Because regular sinus surgery is performed in a hospital setting and has a lengthy recovery period, it typically costs much more than balloon sinus dilation.
