Radiofrequency Turbinoplasty uses a gentle radio frequency energy that improves long-term nasal breathing. This process works like a shrink-wrap on the nasal turbinates to drastically improve air flow through the nose in breathing and to decrease snoring. The procedure is performed using only topical anesthesia and typically takes less than 10 minutes to complete. Minimal bleeding and other side effects are extremely rare. This procedure can create sustained relief 12 months after treatment and patients can return to work the day after the procedure.
In some cases the Radiofrequency Turbinoplasty is performed in combination with the Balloon Sinus Dilation for optimal results. If you are interested in learning more about this procedure, and to find out if it may be right for you, contact our office to schedule your consultation today.
