If you are one of the 37 million Americans who suffer from chronic sinusitis, balloon synoplasty may be the treatment for you. Balloon synoplasty is a catheter balloon dilation treatment done by certified balloon synoplasty doctors. Used with local anesthesia, the small balloons are inserted into the sinuses where they forcibly reopen the nasal passageways for immediate relief and long-lasting results. Unlike mild forms of sinusitis, chronic sinusitis is characterized by inflamed or swollen sinuses that do not respond to the usual non-invasive treatments within a 12-week period. The causes of this condition are commonly linked to either a serious infection or structural issues within the sinus cavity that can otherwise negatively affect your health and breathing. Without a more targeted approach, this condition can result in a seemingly endless cycle of nasal congestion, facial pressure, fatigue, headaches, and other painful symptoms.

For those who are seeking treatment with balloon synoplasty in Palm Beach County, Dr. Michael Schwartz and Joseph R. Zito, MD, are the ones to turn to. Joseph Zito earned his medical degree from Tulane University in 2001. His academic and clinical performance there resulted in his election to the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha Medical Honor Society. Since then, he has completed his residency in Otolaryngology (head and neck surgery) in Miami, FL and has had his own rewarding practice in Palm Beach County since 2006. Currently he is a participant of the Maintenance of Certification program, which indicates a promise to continued learning and mastering of the latest techniques in his field.
Doctors Who Have Pioneered This Treatment, Treating You
As one of the leading doctors for pioneering this technique as the most effective way of treating chronic sinusitis, Dr. Schwartz is gratified to be able to offer his patients a truly minimally invasive, state of the art treatment option. Because Dr. Schwartz is a facial plastic surgeon he was able to recognize that this simple technique originally designed to be another surgical tool had the potential to be a revolutionary stand-alone treatment that could actually help patients to avoid surgery. Having graduated from The Baylor Medical College of Medicine, for the last 25 years Dr. Schwartz has succeeded in becoming an ear, nose, and throat specialist with fellowships in the American Academy of Otolaryngology/Head and Neck Surgery, the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, and the American College of Surgeons. He is the coauthor of two national studies that demonstrate the effectiveness of this treatment in comparison to standard surgical treatments.
