When a deviated septum or crooked septum occurs breathing is difficult which can lead to heavy snoring and sleep apnea. Although very few people have a perfectly straight septum any deviation that causes breathing problems can be corrected by septoplasty, the procedure that corrects a deviated septum.
Before surgery, we use an endoscopic light to look at your nasal passages to determine the shape of your septum. You will receive local anesthesia and light sedation to reduce your recovery and blood loss. The objective of your septoplasty is to reposition the deviated septum so it is more straight in the nasal cavity.
The procedure normally lasts about an hour, and in most cases the patient can go home the same day!
