The Support You Need

Nasal Obstruction

Nasal obstruction can be caused by deformity of the nose itself, its bones, its septum or its turbinates. It can also follow swelling inside the nose (rhinitis). Nasal polyps may block nasal passages. Structural problems often require surgical surgical solutions.

Inflammatory conditions are generally treated with medication. Occasionally a dual approach is required.

Flexible Nas-Endoscopy

Examination with a narrow endoscope gives the operator a clear view of the nasal cavity, post nasal space and sinus drainage routes. FNE can be undertaken in the clinic without the need for a separate booking.


When swelling of the nasal lining obstructs sinus outflow, sinusitis may result. Short term infections are effectively treated with antibiotics, but more persisting disease is treated with anti-inflammatory medications and may require surgery in the form of Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery (FESS).

Allergy / Hayfever

Nasal lining is sensitive. It may over-react to airborne allergic triggers. When the trigger is seasonal (grass/tree pollen), short term treatment may suffice. When the trigger persists in the environment, its identification is helpful, and longer term therapy may be needed.

Nose Bleeds

Simple nose bleeds can be stopped with cauterisation under local anaesthetic in the clinic. Frequently recurring nosebleeds may be treated under general anaesthetic, either with more aggressive cauterisation, or other measures, such as Endoscopic Ligation of the Sphenopalatine Artery (done through the nostril).
