A deviated septum can occur in a patient due to different reasons such as congenital or injury. Every individual’s deviation may differ from another. As reported in the survey, only 5% of the human population is born with a straight septum and the rest have a slight or severe deviation in the shape of their noses.

At Pristyn Care, ENT specialists are well trained in conducting the diagnosis with modern medical instruments to identify the severity of the deviation of the septum. The ENT expert may ask you regarding your medical history and note the symptoms to evaluate the condition.
The doctor may check the nose with the help of a nasal speculum to identify any underlying condition. For example, if your septum is severely disfigured because of any trauma or injury the specialist can ask for an X-ray of the shape of the nose to discuss the potential results of septoplasty surgery.
The ENT doctor will perform the discussed technique during the consultation, i.e., septoplasty, to correct the deviation in the septum. The ENT surgeon will first prepare the patient with local anesthesia for the septoplasty procedure to make the surgery painless. Then, the doctor uses a minimally invasive approach where small incisions are made to access the bone and cartilage through the nasal cavity to repair the shape of the septum. Septoplasty is an outpatient procedure that lasts 40-60 minutes, and the patient can go home on the same day of the surgery. At Pristyn Care, ENT experts are board-certified and highly experienced in executing an advanced septoplasty procedure.
