Our expert says:
Ballon sinuplasty is not performed by anyone in South Africa. The reasons are as follows:
1. The procedure is controversial, and there is scientific proof that it is any better than the current management.
2. There are very few indications for this procedure.
3. The medical aids do not cover this procedure, as it is much more expensive than traditional techniques.
4. The cost will be an extra R 10 000.00 for the patient's own account.
