What are the risks of Sinusoft?

Sinusoft is less invasive than traditional sinus surgery and has a low complication rate. As with any medical procedure, potential risks and complications also exist with Sinusoft.

Possible side effects include, but are not limited to, post-operative bleeding; pain and swelling; allergic reaction to anesthesia or other medications administered during the procedure; or infection. There is also a small risk of mucosal/tissue damage from the expansion. Make sure to consult with your doctor to determine if your condition presents any special risks.

Are you awake during Sinusoft?

Sinusoft is usually an outpatient procedure. Most patients undergo the in-office procedure with general anesthesia, but it varies from patient to patient. 30% choose to be awake, and 70% choose to be asleep. We don’t touch you with a needle, and you do not need an IV.

Does Medicare pay for Sinusoft?

Most insurance companies and Medicare cover Sinusoft if considered medically reasonable and necessary. To be certain of your level of insurance coverage, contact your insurance provider to find out your specific policy.
