New Medical Procedure

by Christa Lollis

A Lufkin doctor is now performing a new procedure in East Texas and he's one of the only one's so far in this area to be doing it.  It's called balloon sinuplasty and is very similar to angioplasty that is performed on a persons heart. During this heavy sinus season pressure can build in the nasal cavity and create symptoms such as headaches and congestion Doctor Brian Humphreys has introduced to East Texas this minimally invasive procedure that poses less pain, risk and recovery time than prior procedures for sinus problems.
