Coblator Turbinoplasty is done as part of OSA surgery in Sleep Apnea. This procedure remove the nasal blockage and give patient better airway.Coblation-assisted inferior turbinoplasty also appears effective for the treatment of patients with allergic rhinitis and nasal obstruction. I have been doing Laser Turbinectomy since 1996, but reduction of nasal turbinate is better achieved Coblator.
