More than 20 million Americans suffer from nasal airway obstruction (NAO), having NAO limits airflow through which can cause significant complications and quality of life. Nasal breathing delivers 70% of your airflow to your lungs and having that obstructed is where the problems can arise. A minimally invasive procedure named Latera can be the solution for NAO.

Latera is a new implant procedure that corrects the nasal obstruction problem people typically use Breathe Rights for. It’s a synthetic analog of a tried and true cartilage grafting technique that I have used for years. For that reason, it has a safety profile that is more reliable and predictable than is typical with new devices. I also have a great deal of comfort with it because of my prior experiences, unique in northwest Indiana and unusual in the Chicagoland area.

Did you know? Dr. Covello was the first surgeon in Indiana and in the first group of 10 nationwide to use it.
