Nose Treatment


A deviated septum occurs when your nasal septum, the thin wall that separates your right and left nasal passages is displaced to one side.

A Deviated Septum Can Be Caused By:
  • Condition Present at Birth:
    In some cases, a deviated septum occurs when the fetus develops in the womb and is apparent at birth.
  • Injury to the Nose:
    A deviated septum can also be the result of an injury that causes the nasal septum to be moved out of position.
  • In infants, such an injury may occur during childbirth. In children and adults, a wide array of accidents may lead to a nose injury and deviated septum. Trauma to the nose most commonly occurs during contact sports, rough play such as wrestling, or automobile accidents.
Surgical repair-

1. If you still experience symptoms despite medical therapy, you may consider surgery to correct your deviated septum (septoplasty).

2. During a typical septoplasty, the nasal septum is straightened and repositioned in the center of the nose. This may require the surgeon to cut and remove parts of the septum before reinserting them in the proper position.
