I am thrilled to offer such a valued alternative to surgical nasal valve repair. Now, patients can improve their breathing and quality of life with a minimally-invasive implant using Latera, says Dr. Khosh

Dr. Khosh offers Latera as a new, minimally-invasive, treatment option that can provide support for weak nasal cartilages, thus reducing nasal obstruction and symptoms such as congestion and stuffiness. The non-permanent implant, which is absorbed over a period of 18 months, can improve an individual's ability to breathe through the nose, at rest, during exercise, and while sleeping. Nasal obstruction significantly affects one’s quality of life. Latera is a promising solution for those who suffer from nasal valve collapse by restoring the strength of the nasal sidewall.

Traditional means of nasal valve repair involved cartilage grafting with a full surgical approach. Yet, Latera represents a breakthrough therapy for nasal valve disorders, without external incisions, scarring, or the need for donor cartilage. While the inside of the nose is numbed using a local anesthetic, the implant is positioned inside the nasal wall, providing stability to the cartilage. The placement of Latera requires only a few minutes, and typically, there is no pain or bleeding.

“I am thrilled to offer such a valued alternative to surgical nasal valve repair. Now, patients can improve their breathing and quality of life with a minimally-invasive implant using Latera," says Dr. Khosh.
