Turbinate Reduction Surgery

Experience Easy Breathing with Turbinate Reduction Surgery

Imagine a life without chronic congestion and sinus pressure. Orlando’s leading ENT specialist Dr. Robert P. Collette, M.D., and his dedicated medical team at Orlando Sinus Surgery can turn that possibility into a reality.

Through advanced medical tests and techniques such as Turbinate Reduction Surgery, we can eliminate blockages in your nasal passageways, providing long-lasting relief from your sinus condition.

About Turbinate Reduction Surgery

Turbinates are bony structures in your nose that play a vital role in moistening, warming and cleaning the air you breathe. However, when they swell or protrude into the passageway, turbinates can obstruct airflow, causing chronic congestion and sinus pressure.

Turbinate nasal treatment, also known as turbinectomy, gently reduces the size of these turbinates, opening up your airway. With Turbinate Reduction Surgery, you can expect improvements in the following painful sinus symptoms:

  • Nasal Drainage and Post-Nasal Drip
  • Difficulty Breathing
  • Decreased Sense of Smell and Taste
  • Sinus Headaches
  • Snoring and Sleep Apnea

The Turbinate Reduction Surgery procedure is typically performed under general anesthesia, and most patients can return home on the same day with a week-long recovery period before returning to work.

In some cases, Turbinate Reduction Surgery may be performed in conjunction with a Septoplasty procedure, which may affect the recovery timeline.


After seeing Dr. Collette for dizziness, my head feels more clear than it has in three years. It is like a miracle!
