Balloon Sinuplasty

Chronic Sinusitis Treatment in San Luis Valley

Balloon Sinuplasty is a breakthrough procedure that relieves the pain and pressure associated with chronic sinusitis. It is used by surgeons to safely and effectively treat chronic sinusitis patients who are not responding well to medications such as antibiotics, nasal steroids, or over‐the‐counter (OTC) drugs, and are seeking relief from uncomfortable and painful sinusitis symptoms.

Dr. Denard Ellison leads the ENT Team at SLV Health, a department that provides an array of services for issues affecting the Ears, Nose, and Throat. One of those services is called Balloon Sinuplasty, a procedure Ellison has been performing since 2006. Regarded by his peers as a pioneer in performing Balloon Sinuplasty operations, Ellison has performed numerous successful procedures over the past nine years. He has seen tremendous results in treating sufferers of sinusitis, a condition that causes the linings of your nose, sinuses, and throat to become inflamed. This can be caused by a pre-existing cold or allergies.

“The Balloon Sinuplasty procedure is a minimally invasive procedure that gently opens blocked sinuses, restoring normal sinus drainage and function,” Ellison said in a recent interview. “The procedure reduces bleeding and patients experience a fast recovery time.”
