ClariFix / RhinAer™

What is Chronic Rhinitis?

Chronic RhinitisChronic rhinitis results in a persistently runny nose and often postnasal drip, congestion, coughing, itching, and sneezing. While some symptoms may be related to allergies, symptoms from chronic rhinitis may occur all year.

This challenging condition can negatively impact your life in countless ways. And trying to find an effective treatment can be frustrating. Like many, you may manage your symptoms using medications and sprays. Unfortunately, these treatments only provide temporary relief. It’s only when the root cause of your rhinitis is addressed that you can expect to find real, lasting relief.

If so, you may be interested to know that Dr. Krueger is one of the selected physicians in the country that has a new and innovative treatment option for you that can be done right in the office
– ClariFix

ClariFix is a clinically-proven, minimally invasive option, which uses cryotherapy to treat your Chronic Rhinitis. A small handheld device is placed endoscopically in the nose and uses a cryotherapy balloon to quickly freeze a small area that is often responsible for your frustrating nasal symptoms. No need to continue to rely solely on oral or nasal medications.

The ClariFix procedure is safe, effective, and takes less than 30 minutes.

How ClariFix Works

The ClariFix device uses a cooling probe to freeze a small, inflamed area in the back of the nose. Freezing the tissue helps relieve the inflammation.

ClariFix Cryotherapy is performed in the doctor’s office. It requires only local or topical anesthesia, and takes just a few minutes of cooling time.

The Results are Impressive
