Turbinate Reduction

What is Turbinate Reduction?

Turbinates are long shelves of bone running the full length of the nose.  They are covered in mucous membranes which often get swollen or enlarged due to allergies, infection, exposure to irritants, head position, or congenitally.  Turbinate reduction is a minimally invasive procedure that dramatically reduces the bulk of the turbinates allowing for better airflow and decreased sense of congestion.

While Dr. Elangovan generally recommends this procedure for nasal obstruction and congestion, patients may also find Turbinate Reduction relieves one or more of the following symptoms:
