    This is a less invasive method of opening narrow sinus openings. It can now be done in an ENT's office. Does anyone have exerience with it--positive or negative?

    I had my deviated nasal septum corrected with sinuplasty, after a year of chronic sinusitis. Great results. I was still crashed for a few weeks afterward, but I no longer snore, sleep better and my nose is now more symmetrical.

    Glad to hear that! Did your doctor talk about the use of balloon sinuplasty for other conditions--like opening narrow passages between the sinuses?
