 Sinusitis may be Cured Without Surgery

Doctors at Sir Ganga Ram Hospital (SGRH) are using a non-surgical technique called balloon sinuplasty to treat chronic sinusitis without surgery.

Sinusitis is the inflammation of the sinuses and can become a big issue if mucus starts blocking the airways.

"The usual treatment procedure of treating acute or chronic sinusitis is to open the nasal tract in order to reach the blockage and then remove the mucus. It is a painful procedure, and in the course of reaching the spot, some bones may break, leading to a longer recovery time," said Dr Shalabh Sharma, senior consultant, ENT, SGRH.

The technique costs Rs 40,000 and patients can go home the same day.
