Turbinate Reduction Surgery
The inferior nasal turbinates are often enlarged, which can impede airflow. Turbinate reduction surgery is used to correct the issue and is a procedure that is usually performed during childhood. This treatment option can also be combined with other nasal procedures to further improve breathing. Some of the issues that may point to the need for turbinate reduction surgery include snoring, sleep impairment and breathing problems.
Adults may also benefit from turbinate reduction surgery. Besides genetic causes, the inferior nasal turbinates can become inflamed as the result of frequent viral infections or allergies. The symptoms that necessitate this type of procedure are often detrimental to overall quality of life and well-being.
An experienced and passionate ear, nose and throat doctor will always seek to pursue the least invasive treatment options available. If you are having breathing problems and would like to discuss treatment options, Estrella ENT can help.
