"By performing a balloon sinuplasty in the office setting, I can improve a patient's symptoms by 50 to 80% within the first week with no downtime or sedation using just topical anesthesia,” says Dr. Gregory Levitin.
NEW YORK (PRWEB) October 24, 2022
Dr. Gregory Levitin performs over 100 in-office balloon sinuplasty procedures every year at his New York City-based office City Sinus Care. A relatively new technology, balloon sinuplasty is a quick and effective in-office treatment alternative to traditional sinus surgery performed under local anesthetic with minimal discomfort.
Dr. Levitin has recently developed an exclusive and unique topical anesthesia protocol that has eliminated 100% of needle injections for most cases. The purpose of balloon sinuplasty treatment is to provide relief from symptoms caused by chronic sinus and nasal inflammation by opening up the sinuses and nasal passages. By utilizing his needle-free approach, Dr. Levitin offers expertise in balloon sinuplasty that is truly revolutionary. Over the last 20 years, Dr. Levitin has found that the best solution is often the least invasive and by focusing exclusively on office-based nasal and sinus procedures, Dr. Levitin has been able to completely eliminate 100% of ENT surgery from his practice.
Many of the patients that Dr. Levitin treats have been suffering for months or even years. They are functional but just don't feel normal. Only a small percentage of patients that come in need antibiotics, but nearly all have evidence of chronic inflammation. This accumulation of inflammation in the lining of the sinuses causes the most significant changes in patients’ quality of life, including difficulty breathing, sinus headaches and congestion. Dr. Levitin’s innovative, needle-free balloon sinuplasty is ideal for patients who suffer from chronic sinusitis or recurrent sinus infections, headaches or sinus pressure, chronic nasal obstruction or congestion, isolated sphenoid or frontal sinusitis, thick mucus discharge, or a reduced sense of smell or taste.
For those suffering from chronic sinusitis pain and discomfort and looking for a long-term solution, Dr. Levitin’s needle-free balloon sinuplasty may be just the answer. Unlike conventional sinus surgery, balloon sinuplasty does not include removal of bone or tissue from the nose or cause any changes to one’s appearance. During the office procedure, the sinus passages are widened with a balloon catheter that is inserted and inflated within the narrow nasal passages and then quickly removed. Without any incisions or tissue removal, there is also less bleeding, fewer risks, less post-operative pain and a quicker recovery time than with other surgical treatments.
"By performing a balloon sinuplasty in the office setting, I can improve a patient's symptoms by 50 to 80% within the first week with no downtime or sedation using just topical anesthesia,” says Dr. Gregory Levitin. “After just two weeks, patients breathe better, sleep better, and most importantly feel better, and can finally get back their quality of life.”
