A Runny Nose Solution

Chronic rhinitis is inflammation of the nose lining that results in excessive mucous production causing a runny nose. Patients who suffer from allergies or other types of chronic rhinitis who do not have a good response with medications may be candidates.  A new FDA approved technology called the Clarifix device  aims to help reduce rhinorrhea.  This special cryoprobe basically freezes small areas of tissue inside the nose with nerves causing mucous production. Preliminary studies indicate an improvement in about 80% of patients. Nevada Sinus Relief is one of the few sites in the country selected to perform this procedure.  This minimally invasive procedure performed in the office is done under local anesthesia.
