What is RhinAer®?

RhinAer is ideal for patients who continue to suffer from runny noses and congestion despite nasal sprays, allergy shots, and pills.  In under 60 seconds and without any incisions or discomfort,  RhinAer can permanently control runny nose symptoms.

While Dr. Elangovan generally recommends this procedure for chronic runny nose, patients may also find RhinAer relieves one or more of the following symptoms:

Why RhinAer?

  • Ideal for patients seeking a permanent solution to runny nose issues
  • Nasal congestion
  • Great for those without relief on nasal sprays, allergy treatments, or oral medications
  • No recovery or time off work
  • Extremely safe

What Can I Expect with RhinAer?

In this brief procedure the nose is initially numbed.  An endoscope, a thin lighted camera, is placed through the nostril.  With this view, the RhinAer radiofrequency device is used to disrupt the overactive nerve which causes congestion and runny nose.

What Can I Expect After my RhinAer® Procedure?

With RhinAer recovery is almost immediate.  A few patients may experience a mild brain freeze headache for a short time.  Post-procedural care includes a short course of nasal saline sprays.  Patients can return to work the same day.

How Effective is RhinAer?

Multiple clinical studies and patient experience have shown significant reduction in nasal congestion and runny nose.  One multi-center prospective study showed 96 percent of patients treated with RhinAer reported an improvement in their rhinitis symptoms at 6 months.  On average their symptoms improved by 61% with the most significant improvements being in runny nose and post-nasal drip.

How Much Does RhinAer® Cost?

Almost all insurances cover RhinAer.  The cost of RhinAer will vary depending on the individualized treatment plan recommended for you and your current health insurance coverage. To get a more accurate assessment of how much RhinAer will cost, we encourage you to come in for a private consultation with Dr. Elangovan. At Resolve ENT, we are also happy to offer financing that helps you more easily pay for your treatments at your convenience.
