What is Balloon Sinuplasty?

Balloon Sinuplasty is A Breakthrough in Endoscopic Sinus Surgery

  • Balloon Sinuplasty is Safe & Less Invasive
    With Balloon Sinuplasty, there is no cutting of nasal tissue or bone. More than 250,000 patients suffering from chronic sinusitis have been treated by physicians using Balloon Sinuplasty technology, and we are ready to serve all Metairie / New Orleans-area and Mississippi Gulf Coast patients with this life-changing procedure.
  • Proven Effective
    Most patients report clinically meaningful improvement in sinus symptoms and quality of life through 2 years following surgery.
  • Fast Recovery
    Recovery time varies with each patient, but recovery is typically fast. In a study of in-office balloon dilation, most patients returned to work and normal activity within 2 days.
  • Balloon Sinuplasty is Available in our New Orleans area Office
    Balloon Sinuplasty is now performed by Dr R Daniel Jacob in his Metairie office under local anesthesia. Call us at 504-456-9068 to schedule your consultation today!

See How It Works



Balloon Sinuplasty (BSP) is a safe and effective procedure for chronic sinusitis patients who are not responding well to medications and are seeking relief from uncomfortable and painful sinusitis symptoms.

If you have been diagnosed with chronic sinusitis and are not responding well to medication, you may be a candidate for sinus surgery. There is now a less invasive option used by Dr Dan Jacob to treat chronic sinusitis patients that is clinically proven to be safe, effective, and improve the quality of your life.

With Balloon Sinuplasty, Dr Jacob will open inflamed sinuses in the same way that heart surgeons open up blocked arteries during balloon angioplasty. The procedure is less invasive than traditional sinus surgery, and effective at relieving symptoms of chronic sinusitis. Balloon Sinuplasty allows patients to return to normal activities quickly. Unlike conventional sinus surgery, it does not include removal of bone or tissue from the nose. And, Balloon Sinuplasty is now offered in our Metairie office under local anesthesia, so that there is no need to go to an operating room or undergo general anesthesia.
