Latest Innovations in Rhinitis Treatment: A Comprehensive Guide

with Dr. Omar Ahmed

In this episode, Dr. Gopi Shah and Dr. Ashley Agan invite Dr. Omar Ahmed, rhinologist at Houston Methodist Hospital, to discuss innovative treatments for chronic rhinitis.

First, Dr. Ahmed shares his experience with treating chronic rhinitis using medications, in-office procedures, and surgery. Patients who fail to respond to medication find rhinitis relief up to 95% of the time following posterior nasal nerve ablation. He explains the difference between radiofrequency ablation (RhinAer and Neurent) and cryoablation (ClariFix). Then, Dr. Ahmed explains relevant anatomy, patient counseling, and potential adverse effects of ablation. Finally, he touches on recent developments in billing for these treatments.
