What to Expect with Nosebleed Cauterization Surgery
Cauterization is a procedure used to force the blood to clot or coagulate at the site of the bleeding. Cautery may be done with silver nitrate or with an electrocautery instrument. Electocautery is usually reserved for more severe bleeding and posterior nosebleeds. Cauterization usually takes only a few minutes and is performed in the doctor’s office under local anesthesia.
