Optimizing Patient Recovery, Comfort and Convenience Through Balloon Sinuplasty Technology
NEW YORK, Nov. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Dr. Lisa Liberatore, prominent Otolaryngologist (Ear, Nose and Throat Surgeon) located in the Upper East Side of New York City, provides a helpful and informative link to a YouTube video of her patient undergoing an In-Office Balloon Sinuplasty procedure that provides extraordinary relief to patients suffering with chronic sinus problems. Normally something that is done under general anesthesia and in a hospital setting, Dr. Liberatore is one of the only surgeons to offer this in-office sinus procedure so that her patients can quickly resume their life, and her clinical outcomes are exceptional and noteworthy among her peers.
Balloon Sinuplasty is a clinically proven, minimally invasive technology used for treating chronic sinusitis. The technology is an endoscopic, catheter-based system for patients suffering from sinusitis. The FDA-cleared technology uses a small, flexible, sinus balloon catheter to open up blocked sinus passageways, restoring normal sinus drainage. When the sinus balloon is inflated, it gently restructures and widens the walls of the passageway while maintaining the integrity of the sinus lining. Acclarent Inc. originally developed this technology, now part Ethicon, Inc., a Johnson & Johnson company.
Balloon Sinuplasty is:
- Safe and effective
- Reduces bleeding
- Offers a fast recovery time
- Does not limit treatment options
An additional link is provided of her patient Faith Marcus, where she gives a testimonial discussing her personal experience with Balloon Sinuplasty.
Dr. Liberatore has performed Balloon Sinuplasty on 263 patients and has recorded her outcomes using her proprietary report, Lexington ENT Sinus Outcome Report (LEXSOR).
Dr. Liberatore’s treatment outcomes were presented to the Otolaryngology Department of Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City during a Grand Rounds Presentation in October, 2011. Lenox Hill Hospital is part of North Shore LIJ.
