Balloon Sinuplasty In-Office
Office-based sinus dilation may be a compelling option for patients who decline or are ineligible for traditional OR-based surgery. With Balloon Sinuplasty In-Office, the majority of patients return to normal activity within two days of the procedure. 1
The ORIOS and ORIOS 2 office-based clinical studies have demonstrated high safety, effectiveness, tolerability, and patient satisfaction.1,2
Balloon Sinuplasty In-Office - Clinical Benefits to an Expanded Patient Population
- Restore normal sinus drainage and function without bone or tissue removal, which preserves future treatment options
- Consider the opportunity for earlier intervention when medical therapy has failed
- Perform Balloon Sinuplasty In-Office procedures within a comfortable office setting under local anesthetic
- Lower the financial burden for eligible patients (reduced copay and procedural costs)*
Balloon-only ESS payment rates are appropriate and adequate to support BSP in the office setting.
