Runny Nose

Do you suffer from a runny nose also known as rhinorrhea?

If your nose is always runny, you may be one of the millions of people living with chronic rhinitis.

So, what is chronic rhinitis?

Chronic rhinitis results in a persistently runny nose, often postnasal drip, congestion, coughing, itching, and sneezing.  While symptoms maybe related to allergies or abnormal signals in the nose, symptoms from chronic rhinitis may occur all year long.  Until now, treatment often meant managing symptoms with medications and sprays.  Now, Dr. Karanfiov can offer you an ablative procedure to disrupt these signals and provide lasting relief without surgery.

Two techniques are available. First, cryotherapy is used to freeze the nerve responsible and the second technique is the RhinAer™ procedure.  The  RhinAer™ uses low level heat energy to quiet the nerve.  These procedures clinically demonstrated an improvement in symptoms in 96% of patients.  Patients typically return to normal activity on the same day.

  • Minimal discomfort, no incisions
  • It is clinically proven to provide lasting relief of symptoms including runny nose, post-nasal drip and chronic cough
  • Clinical studies show that patients treated with the RhinAer™ procedure reported significant improvements in their symptoms and quality of life
