Rhinitis Treatment

Finding the root cause to provide appropriate treatment

Online Consultation Before and After

What is Rhinitis?

Rhinitis is an inflammatory disease with a variety of symptoms such as runny nose, sneezing, stuffy nose, and itching. If the rhinitis is left untreated in the early stages, it will become chronic, and chronic rhinitis can cause other complications. Therefore, early treatment is important as it is difficult to correct later on. Rhinitis is caused by various reasons, and GNG strives to find the precise cause in order to provide the most appropriate treatment for each patient, making sure to treat the rhinitis without recurrence.

Symptoms that worsen if rhinitis is left untreated

  • Rhinitis makes patients breath through their mouths because of difficulty breathing through the nose. This triggers various symptoms and worsens physical conditions, which is why an

    early treatment is critical.

When there is a cause of disease or complication, it is necessary to perform customized surgery.
Depending on whether or not there is a structural problem with inner nose, either surgery or procedure will be carried out.

  • Process laser treatment

    • Enlarged lower turbinate

    • If nasal air passage is narrowed because of rhinitis inducing lower turbinate to get larger, a simple laser treatment can treat the problem.

    Information of treatment

    A part of nasal mucosa is reduced using laser

    Local anesthesia

    10~20minutes treatment time

    Able to resume daily activity right after treatment

  • Surgery process

    • Deviated septum

    • If the septum, which acts as a wall of the nose gets deviated, the lower turbinate is stimulated and this worsens rhinitis or causes nasal congestion and rhinitis itself. Therefore septum deviation must be corrected surgically.

    Information of surgery

    A method where septum deviation is fixed by excising the least amount of cartilage to avoid recurrence as well as side effect

    Local anesthesia

    15~25minutes surgery time

    Able to resume daily activities 3~4days after surgery

    • Nasal valve obstruction

    • Nasal valve is a roof of the nose which controls the flow of the air that enters through the nose. If this is narrowed, it accompanies symptoms and disease such as rhinitis and nasal congestion, in which nasal valve must be reconstructed.

    Information of surgery

    The space in inner nasal roof is broadened to allow breathing with ease

    General anesthesia

    30~40minutes surgery time

    Able to resume daily activities 3~4days after surgery

Point3 Recurred rhinitis should be treated at GNG Hospital

Rhinitis is a common disease that occurs due to a variety of causes, and there are various ways to treat it. If the root cause is not treated, there is a high chance of recurrence, which makes the primary surgery utmost important. If the first surgery fails, the revision surgery becomes more complex because of adhesion that took place after the first surgery. Therefore, it is ideal to make a systematic plan to identify the cause of the failure in the first surgery and make correction accordingly.

Reasons why revision rhinitis surgery is required

  • No improvement was made

    Root cause was not identified or the treatment received was not appropriate for the root cause
    Minor improvement / Recurred rhinitis

  • Complications after surgery

    If too much of lower turbinate is removed, it causes
    Dryness in the nose, throat and mouth/ and bleeding and burning sensation in the nose

  • Get your surgery with reassurance!

    Usage of the HEPA filter ventilation system in all operation rooms.

    What is a HEPA filter ventilated operation room?

    The air outside the operating room is filtered cleanly by the HEPA filter and circulated inside.

    Because air is circulated by providing clean air through a positive pressure system, you don’t need to worry about infection caused by air pollution thus having surgery with confidence.

    Also, there is an air-shower system that shakes off contaminated dust before entering the operating room. We strive to do our best in preventing infection through sterilization and thorough infection control of all medical devices.

    Be rest assured! GNG’s operation rooms are meticulously clean.
