Nasal conditions treated by Ms Anastasia Rachmanidou

Mr Rachmanidou offers treatment for all conditions affecting the nose, including:

  • Sinusitis
  • Blocked nose and breathing problems
  • Allergic rhinitis
  • Snoring
  • Obstructive sleep apnoea
  • Trauma
  • Nasal polyps


A leading expert on nasal turbinate coblation

The turbinates are small structures within the nose that cleanse, warm and humidify the inhaled air.  Irritants such as allergens or environmental polllution can cause the turbinates to swell resulting in nasal blockage, problems breathing through the nose and snoring.

Ms Rachmanidou is lead mentor in the UK for the latest office-based treatment to reduce enlarged nasal turbinates, nasal turbinate coblation.  After applying local anaesthetic, a specially designed wand that emits radiofrequency energy is inserted into the nose, shrinking the turbinates.  The procedure takes less than 20 minutes and normal activities can be resumed immediately.

Functional endoscopic sinus surgery in London and Kent

The sinuses are small air-filled spaces situated behind the forehead and cheekbones. Connected to the cavity of the nose, they help control the temperature and humidity of the air travelling down to the lungs.  The sinuses naturally produce mucus that normally drains into the nose through small channels.  However, if the lining of the sinuses becomes inflamed or infected, the channels can block causing symptoms such as a blocked nose, facial pain, headache and fever.

Mr Rachmanidou is skilled in the treatment of severe sinusitis, or recurring sinusitis that does not respond to other treatment options, using functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS).  By inserting a long thin tube with a magnifying lens attached (endoscope) into the nose she is able to use special instruments to open up the drainage passages from the sinuses or remove any blocking tissue such as nasal polyps.
