Sinuva

Sinuva is a non-surgical treatment to shrink nasal polyps. 



How does Sinuva Work?

The Sinuva implant works by releasing steroidal anti-inflammatory medication into the sinus cavities over the course of 90 days.

Sinuva has the added advantage of opening the sinus cavities for improved breathing. The action of the steroidal medication along with the widening effect of the implant reduces congestion while the medication shrinks nasal polyps – without surgery.


The Sinuva Procedure

The implant procedure is performed by Dr. Krueger in a routine office visit. The entire procedure takes only about 30 to 40 minutes, with 20 to 30 minutes for anesthetic to numb the nose, and just 10 minutes to gently insert the device within the sinus cavities, after which it usually cannot be felt by the patient.
Over the 90 days the anti-inflammatory medication is delivered directly to the sinuses, shrinking nasal polyps. After approximately 90 days, it is removed.
