Nasal Valve Repair
-At Gateway Regional Medical Center, the board-certified ENT on our medical staff specializes in minimally invasive nasal valve repair, using a small implant designed to support the cartilage in the nose, helping the nasal airway stay open for breathing.
The implant is placed inside the wall of the nose to support the cartilage, reducing nasal airway obstruction symptoms and helping patients breathe better. The implant material absorbs over a period of 18-24 months.
Are you experiencing the following symptoms?
- Nasal congestion or stuffiness
- Nasal blockage or obstruction
- Trouble breathing through your nose
- Trouble sleeping
- Unable to get enough air through your nose during exercise or exertion
If you are suffering from nasal airway obstruction, which limits airflow through the nose with significant quality-of-life consequences, call 618-288-6870 to make an appointment with Gateway Medical Group – ENT.
