Nasal Blockage and Sneezing due to nasal allergy is best treated by Laser and/or Coblator.
Coblator surgery is new technology to get rid of nasal blockage very fast. It is done under local anesthesia here in Jubilee hospital, Trivandrum, south India by Dr.K.O.Paulose FRCS DLO, Consultant ENT Surgeon.
Those patients with nose blockage due to swelling of the lining of the nose over structures called the Inferior Turbinates are the group that might benefit from laser or Coblator surgery. Those suitable for surgery will usually have tried a variety of drug treatments, including antihistamine tablets, and nose sprays (steroid and anti histamine).
This advanced surgical technique results in reduced pain, less bleeding and faster recovery for patients. Unlike the traditional method, Coblation technology literally ‘vaporizes’ the tissues. As there’s no cutting or heat involved, there’s no charring or burning of healthy tissue, which is great news for patients.
