Despite using nasal steroid sprays, decongestants, antihistamines, many patients do not achieve relief from their nasal obstruction. The culprit in certain cases may be deviated septum -causing blockage of nasal airflow.
At GNO Snoring & Sinus we do NOT use nasal packing. It only adds to patient discomfort and is therefore not part of our procedure.
The recovery time from a septoplasty is quite short. Patients can expect some minor nasal congestion due to swelling but can return to work in a few days. Patients are routinely seen about 1 week afterwards.
If you would like to learn more about a septoplasty, feel free to contact us for further assessment and treatment.
