Our Sinusitis Treatment

To provide relief for your chronic sinusitis, your doctor may recommend the Medtronic Hydrodebrider® System as part of your treatment plan. This innovative device uses a powered spray to irrigate the sinuses, helping to dislodge stubborn bacteria associated with chronic sinusitis. The Hydrodebrider System then suctions the excess fluid and debris from your nose.

Laboratory research shows that the Hydrodebrider treatment offers better removal of bacteria than traditional saline rinses.13 This is because traditional saline rinses do not reach all areas of the sinuses. The Hydrodebrider System has a rotating spray and flexible tip that allows your doctor to directly irrigate all areas of the sinuses. In addition, the spray from the Hydrodebrider is much more powerful than a traditional saline rinse and better able to dislodge the bacteria,13 while still being safe for the sensitive tissues of your sinuses (data on file).

If you have chronic sinusitis and plan to have surgery, your doctor can use the Hydrodebrider System in the operating room during your procedure. Your doctor can also perform the Hydrodebrider treatment in his or her office.
