About Nasal Airway Obstruction (NAO) and Nasal Valve Collapse (NVC)
Are you experiencing any of the following symptoms?
- Nasal congestion or stuffiness
- Nasal blockage or obstruction
- Trouble breathing through your nose
- Trouble sleeping
- Inability to get enough air through your nose during exercise or exertion
A New Option
We are now offering a new option called LATERA®, an absorbable nasal implant that provides support to the collapsing lateral nasal cartilage. LATERA may help you breathe better by reducing your NAO symptoms. Through a minimally invasive procedure, LATERA is inserted through a small incision in the nose. Patients reported improved breathing through their nose and little risk of changes to appearance.iv The majority of patients implanted with LATERA were satisfied with their breathing (86%) and appearance (93%) results.v Eighteen and 24-month data demonstrated durable relief of NAO symptoms with LATERA with no negative cosmetic changes.vi
Clinical research shows LATERA patients experience:iv
- Reduced nasal congestion or stuffiness
- Less trouble breathing through the nose
- Improved ability to get enough air through the nose during exercise or exertion
- Reduced nasal blockage or obstruction
- Less trouble sleeping
Do you suffer from frequent runny nose, congestion and post-nasal drip even when you aren’t sick?
You may have a condition called chronic rhinitis. Dr. Lazar offers a unique treatment solution for adults with these frustrating chronic rhinitis symptoms. Using the patented ClariFix® cryotherapy device, we are able to go to the source of the problem, the inflamed nasal lining and out of balance nerves in the nose. The ClariFix® solution is:
- FDA cleared
- Minimally invasive
- Performed in our office
A clinical study demonstrated a significant decrease in runny nose & congestion symptoms with 4 out of 5 patients reporting long-lasting relief after ClariFix®cryotherapy.vii, vii
The most common side effects associated with ClariFix cryotherapy are temporary increased congestion and transient pain or discomfort.
