Is the balloon sinuplasty surgery painful?
Balloon sinuplasty is a minimally invasive procedure and is virtually painless.
Patients are under local anesthesia during balloon sinuplasty surgery, which prevents them from feeling any pain and makes the whole procedure more tolerable. Most patients who undergo balloon sinuplasty do not report pain, only a feeling of sinus pressure or numbness during the surgery.
Ask your doctor to tell you what to expect, during the procedure.
