We are committed to offering patients the highest level of quality care and the latest treatment options, including an impressive new treatment for chronic sinusitis known as Balloon Sinuplasty™
Cary, North Carolina (PRWEB) April 13, 2016
Chronic sinusitis, a persisting inflammatory condition affecting the sinuses, is one of the more prevalent chronic illnesses in the United States, affecting 37 million Americans. Residents of North Carolina’s Research Triangle now have a new resource when it comes to the diagnosis and treatment of this often debilitating condition: Wake Sinus Center.
Located at 115 Parkway Office Court, Suite 201, in Cary, North Carolina, Wake Sinus Center specializes in the evaluation and treatment of chronic sinusitis. Its founder and director, Pankaj Gupta, MD, FACS, is a board-certified otolaryngologist with over 20 years of experience as an ear, nose and throat specialist.
“The reason for opening Wake Sinus Center is pretty straightforward,” Dr. Gupta says. “We know sinusitis can make people feel miserable and we want to help. We are committed to offering patients the highest level of quality care and the latest options, including an impressive new treatment for chronic sinusitis known as Balloon Sinuplasty™. I have personally seen how this procedure can dramatically change lives."
For years, the standard surgical option for treating chronic sinusitis was functional endoscopic sinus surgery, or FESS. The procedure is performed in the hospital operating room, using general anesthesia. Recovery averages 2 weeks, and most patients are very limited in their activities during that time.
In contrast, Balloon Sinuplasty™ is performed in-office, under local anesthesia, on an out-patient basis. Most people are able to return to normal activities within 24 hours following the procedure. Balloon Sinuplasty™ can be the ideal option for people with busy schedules, who wish to get back to their normal, daily lives as soon as possible.
“By making Balloon Sinuplasty™ available, we’re actually reducing the costs of healthcare for patients individually as they are paying less for treatment compared to traditional FESS, and they are getting back in the workforce faster since they don’t have a long recovery period,” Dr. Gupta says. “This is a small contribution that we are making to change healthcare trends.”
New website launch
Along with the opening of Wake Sinus Center, Dr. Gupta has also launched a new website, http://www.WakeSinus.com, to inform potential Cary-area patients about chronic sinusitis and the benefits of Balloon Sinuplasty™.
“Our new website includes a number of exciting features, including an interactive quiz to help you determine if you're a candidate for Balloon Sinuplasty™,” notes Dr. Gupta.
