Coblation Turbinate Reduction is a specific procedure that can provide significant relief from the symptoms of turbinate hypertrophy such as congestion and sleep disruption. Turbinate Coblation is a quick, painless procedure performed in the office that offers immediate results. Before the procedure, the nose is numbed. Then, a coblation wand, which emits radiofrequency energy, is inserted into the turbinate. The result is shrinking of the tissue leading to an overall reduction in turbinate size without the removal of bone. The nasal passages are thereby opened and the nasal obstruction is resolved.
