Deviated Septum

The septum is the membrane between the nostrils, which consists of a hard bone toward the back and flexible cartilage toward the front. When the cartilage is crooked, it is known as a deviated septum. A deviated septum can prevent normal flow of air through the nose, making it harder to breathe and take part in physical activities. Recommended for individuals with sinusitis, post-nasal drip, sleep apnea, and snoring, the procedure allows for easier breathing.
