are all ent docs not created equally? can all not do a coblation? would it not be wise to try this before a turbinate reduction surgery?

ENT doctors: Hello, you pose an interesting question. Each ENT doctor goes through specialty training for many years after completing medical school. Each residency program goes through an accreditation process to assure they receive quality training. However, after the doctors complete their training each can choose to practice their own way. Call different ENT docs to see if they perform the coblation.

a 3 dimensional view: Through the nose is a good way to assess the turbinates. Ask your doctor if a turbinate reduction is indicated.
