Balloon Sinuplasty Sinus Surgery

Imagine a life free of painful sinus infections…

Balloon Sinuplasty (BSP) is a safe and effective treatment for patients seeking relief from painful sinusitis symptoms.

Lasting Chronic Sinus Pain Relief Starts Here

If you’ve been diagnosed with chronic sinusitis and are not responding well to medication, or if you have recurrent acute rhinosinusitis, you may be a candidate for Balloon Sinuplasty.

As one of the top board certified ENT surgeons in North Carolina, Dr. Douglas Holmes successfully treats patients with chronic and recurrent acute sinusitis using the in-office Balloon Sinuplasty procedure.

The procedure is less invasive than traditional sinus surgery and highly effective at delivering sinus pain relief for the symptoms of chronic sinusitis. And, unlike conventional sinus surgery, it does not include removal of bone or tissue from the nose – allowing for a quick recovery, with most patients resuming normal activities in just a few days.

I haven’t had sinus pain, pressure, headaches or infections since coming to see Dr. Holmes. Any day that I don’t feel like I used to, is a great day.

For my whole life, I’ve suffered by chronic Sinusitis. I’ve seen MANY ENT’s that basically gave up and one (local) ENT even said that I was “Making it all up". I heard of Dr. Holmes and Balloon Sinuplasty and thought I would give that a try. For the FIRST TIME IN MY LIFE, I CAN BREATHE! The procedure was simple, quick and life-changing. Won’t ever see another ENT as long as I’m in Raleigh.

My only regret is not becoming a patient of Dr. Holmes sooner. I suffered from reoccurring sinus infections 3 or more times per year for years, which became more frequent in occurrence. After going to several other ENTs without any improvement, I finally started doing some research on my own and was fortunate to find Dr. Holmes. I noticed that I could breathe significantly better right away. Since my balloon sinuplasty procedures approximately eight months ago, I have experienced no sinus infections or upper respiratory infections. I am thrilled to have found Dr. Holmes, and could not be more pleased with the outcome.
