Coblation Turbinate Reduction for Sleep Apnea & Snoring
What is Coblation® turbinate reduction?
Coblation® turbinate reduction is a minimally-invasive sleep apnea and snoring procedure that uses radio frequency energy to reduce the size of nasal turbinates and provides relief from nasal airway obstruction. This in-office procedure usually takes less than 30 minutes and is performed using local anesthesia.
Why is Coblation® turbinate reduction performed?
Coblation® turbinate reduction is performed to treat:
- Severe or chronic nasal allergies
- Chronic nasal congestion
- Sinus-related snoring and sleep apnea
What does Coblation® turbinate reduction involve?
Coblation® devices use radio frequency technology operating at a low temperature to gently remove tissue to reduce the size of nasal turbinates and open up the nasal airways. The precision and control afforded by Coblation® devices minimize damage to surrounding tissue during the procedure resulting in faster recovery.
What are the benefits of having Coblation® turbinate reduction?
Benefits of undergoing Coblation® turbinate reduction include:
- Minimally invasive procedure
- Performed in a single office visit
- Local anesthetic prevents any discomfort during procedure
- Fast and easy recovery
- Significantly improves nasal passages within days
- Nasal tissues completely heal within weeks
- Eliminates nasal airway obstructions
