Migraines can be caused by a variety of different conditions. Sometimes these attacks are the result of neurological issues while other times they are caused by structural issues in the nose. Dr. Mohsen Tavoussi has found that some Orange County patients suffer from migraines because they have enlarged nasal turbinates that make contact with the side wall of the nose.
Enlarged turbinates are known to cause a variety of symptoms for Newport Beach patients, including sinus pressure, infections and congestion. In severe cases, migraines can result. Dr. Tavoussi can help Newport Beach patients who are suffering from migraines as a result of enlarged nasal turbinates by performing turbinate nasal surgery.
What is Turbinate Nasal Surgery?
Turbinate Nasal Surgery is a medical procedure that corrects enlarged nasal turbinates. The nasal turbinates work to humidify the nose. In many ways, these intricate structures work as the nose’s air conditioning unit. When nasal turbinates become enlarged, it can block the nasal passageways and result in many uncomfortable symptoms for the patient, including migraines. A CT scan of the nose and sinus, after careful review of patient history and a physical examination, can help determine if turbinate surgery is the right choice. Turbinate Nasal Surgery is a precise procedure that reduces the size of the turbinates and provides patients with the relief that they are seeking.
