One of the guys at my gym today was talking about a surgery that some boxers have done that permamently prevents nose bleeds. I've heard of this a long time ago too. Im not thinking about doing it or anything i just wanted to know if its true. I forgot what he said it was called, but i think it started with a C. Has anyone heard of this?

I believe they cauterize some of the capillary beds in the rear of your nose to prevent perfusive bleeding, the name of the procedure escapes me though.

I think it's just called nose cauterization. I would think there would be some negative long term effects that go along with it though, so find out all you can before you consider trying it.
