Atlanta Radiofrequency Turbinate Reduction Surgery
Nasal turbinates, also known as nasal concha, are important structures inside the nose that trap dirt, dust and other particles so these irritants cannot enter your lungs. They also add moisture and heat the air you breathe in, helping your lungs to operate more effectively. When these bony and soft-tissue structures are irritated by allergies or other conditions, they can become inflamed and enlarged, resulting in a blocked nasal airway.
