A septoplasty is a surgical procedure to straighten the nasal septum, i.e., the bone and cartilage layer between the nostrils. The condition in which the septum is crooked is known as a deviated septum. A septoplasty is performed by trimming, repositioning, and replacing cartilage, bone, or both.
Correction of a crooked deviated septum helps make the airflow in the nose easier which helps to breathe and reduces the risk of sinus infections. It also helps the quality of voice and can eliminate snoring.
If you have a crooked nasal septum, you should consult an otolaryngologist/ENT specialist. At Pristyn Care, you can seek treatment with the best ENT specialists near you for deviated septum surgery.
