Dr. Pasha is most known as a pioneer of in-office Balloon Sinuplasty™ for the management of recurrent sinus problems. He participated and published the initial research to refine Balloon Sinuplasty™ and has become one of the most experienced in this technique. He lectures his peers across the country and often has visiting colleagues observe him perform this procedure.
In-Office Balloon Sinuplasty™ may be considered for those who have recurrent sinus infections or barosinusitis (facial pain caused by pressure such as in a flight). Dr. Pasha may also consider balloon sinuplasty for those who have rhinogenic headaches. Rhinogenic comes from rhino- which means nose (like rhinoceros) and -geneic which means the cause of (like genesis or genetic). Some headaches or migraine sufferes are triggered by congestion in the nose or sinuses. These type headaches may be addressed by in-office balloon sinuplasty.
Balloon Sinuplasty™ is an FDA approved technique that uses microscopic endoscopes placed through the nose to locate the openings (ostia) of the sinuses. A wire and catheter-based system accesses the openings. Once identified, a small balloon is gradually inflated then removed to open the blocked sinus similar to how angioplasty is used to open vessels in the heart. This opening allows for normal function and drainage of the sinuses.
Dr. Pasha begins by numbing your nose with a nasal spray in the office. The procedure causes minimal pain and recovery. You may return to work or school the same day. As you recover you will need to keep your nose moist with nasal salt-water spray as well as use corticosteroid nasal sprays to keep the inflammation down.
