In-Office Turbinate Reduction
Turbinate reduction is a surgical procedure that reduces the overall size of the turbinates, which are long and narrow bone shelves that protrude into the breathing passage of the nose. Their function is to clean and humidify air as it travels through your nose filtering dirt, pollen, dust and other irritants before they enter your lungs.
Sometimes allergies, or other sinus related circumstances, can cause the turbinates to become enlarged. Once this happens, the turbinates can obstruct breathing and cause any of the following symptoms, ranging from mild to severe.
- Frequent Sinus Infections
- Sleep Apnea
If you suffer from any of these symptoms, schedule an appointment to be examined. A surgical procedure may be necessary if these complications cannot be resolved with medications. Our In-Office Turbinate Reduction surgery is quick and nearly painless, and repairs functionality of the turbinates to bring you comfort and relief. Request a consultation today!
