Breathing easier… It’s a bit of a cliche and a saying used in many contexts, all relating to the idea of comfort and relaxation. But if you have ever suffered from allergies or chronic nasal congestion you know that breathing easily or freely is not something you take for granted.

When our breathing is inhibited through the nasal passages airflow must travel through the mouth and this phenomenon, known as “mouth breathing” can have severe consequences ranging from sleep deprivation and sleep apnea to strokes and even heart attacks.

Fort Lauderdale balloon sinuplasty doctors like Dr. Wilson DuMornay are experiencing more and more patients with chronic sinus congestion, sinusitis, allergies that constrict the nasal passages, deviated septums and other causes and conditions that affect breathing.

Thes doctors, commonly referred to as “ear, nose and throat” specialists, are in fact called “otolaryngologists” in the profession. They are at the technological forefront of a new procedure called “balloon sinuplasty“. Balloon sinuplasty is a revolutionary procedure usually conducted in the doctor’s office, but sometimes in outpatient centers or hospitals, that dramatically improves sinus flow and usage with no side effects and without the need for general anesthesia.

Balloons are inserted into the nostrils where they are inflated and expand the nasal openings to improve airflow and consequently breathing. The result is long-term improvement of your breathing and sleep habits.

Balloon Sinuplasty involves almost no downtime and no need for major recovery or rest. The procedure has a less than .01% complication rate so it is considered extraordinarily safe.

What makes Dr. DuMornay’s practice exceptional in the industry is his dedication and commitment to his patients. Dr. DuMornay explains his philosophy when it comes to utilizing Balloon Sinuplasty:

“We are proud to have a very strong and loyal patient base with a commitment to the long-term health of our patients. We only prescribe balloon sinuplasty when we feel there is a 99% chance of improving the lives of our patients. It’s important for our patients to know and understand the importance of good and proper breathing out of the nasal passages and its link to good overall health.”
