Treatment of sneezing:by Laser
Dr.K.O.Paulose FRCS DLO, Consultant ENT Surgeon, Jubilee Hospital, Trivandrum, Kerala, India
Allergic rhinitis cannot be completely cured by any surgery including laser, but this process does help to reduce the symptoms of nasal allergy like sneezing, running nose and nasal blockage.
I use Co2 laser to shrink the trigger zone at the anterior end of the inferior turbinate and the whole turbinate itself. If the middle and superior turbinates are pale and polypoid,they are also laserised.
Small nasal polyps can also be vaporized.
This is a very simple procedure, done under local anesthetic.
This outpatient procedure takes about 15 minutes, not including prep time. Afterward, a patient stays in recovery for one hour before being discharged home.
The surgery is effective for 70-80%% of patients. It is an option for people with mainly nasal symptoms who haven\’t responded to prescription medications.
