West Jordan, Utah (PRWEB) March 12, 2013
Jordan Valley Medical Center introduces the new standard in ENT procedures to Utah with Acclarent Cyclops™ Multi-Angle Endoscope. With this technology, surgeons have the unique opportunity to obtain a comprehensive perspective of the entire nasal cavity and nasopharynx in order to optimize surgery for patients with chronic sinusitis. The Acclarent Cyclops™ surveys the paranasal anatomy prior to surgery, verifies the CT scan visually during surgery, and inspects the sinuses post surgery.
Balloon Sinuplasty™ is a minimally invasive treatment option for patients with sinusitis, which is one of the most common chronic health problems in the U.S. Using endoscopic techniques, which include the use of Acclarent Cyclops™, surgeons have the ability to dilate obstructed and inflamed sinuses with precision. Balloon Sinuplasty™ is unlike traditional sinus surgery, as it does not require removal of bone and tissue in the nasal cavity. During the procedure, surgeons use a small, flexible balloon catheter to expand blocked sinus passages and drain mucus build up. The balloon is designed to gently restructure the walls of the sinuses while maintaining the sinus lining foundation. Most patients notice significant improvement in sinusitis symptoms, often with a rapid recovery period.
“The Acclarent Cyclops™ offers a valuable advancement to the Balloon Sinuplasty™ system,” said Dr. Ryan Gilbert of Jordan Valley Medical Center. “Jordan Valley Medical Center is proud to be the first hospital in Utah to introduce the latest technology to our medical team and provide an improved surgical option to our patients. Sinusitis is a chronic health problem, which can cause debilitating symptoms. When traditional treatment is unsuccessful, Balloon Sinuplasty™ may be the best option.”
