Could a deep freeze help with your chronic congestion?
The Doctors welcome Dora, who is constantly dealing with congestion and a runny nose and has tried to solve her health concern with sprays, solutions, and medications, but none have worked. "I just want to be able to breathe again," a frustrated (and congested) Dora tells us. "Please help me!"
Otolaryngologist Dr. Brian Weeks performs a cryotherapy procedure on her nose, which he says may provide her relief for 3 to 4 years. He explains the procedure focuses on a specific part of the nose that produces mucus and freezing the area disrupts its ability to produce mucus. He says this therapy works for allergic and nonallergic patients.
Dora, who was anesthetized during the procedure, says she felt no pain and was very comfortable while it was performed.
Dr. Weeks says patients who have this procedure will still produce mucus, which is vital to the body and our immune system, but the production is usually cut in half. He also notes the procedure is usually covered by insurance.
