Septoplasty: If you are noticing nasal blockage, you could consider a surgical procedure called septoplasty. This could relieve the obstruction from the deviated septum.

Deviated septum: A deviated septum can be corrected surgically to bring the septum to the midline. If there are symptoms like nasal obstruction, snoring or recurrent sinusitis, have your nose evaluated by a board certified otolaryngologist. Surgery is the only treatment.

Deviated septum: Refers to the cartillage that seperates the nasal passages becoming crooked and pushed to one side, often from trauma. This can hamper breathing thru the nose. Treatment is typically septoplasty which invilves the removal of all but an "l" shaped strut of septum for support. Often done in conjunction with spreader grafts to open airway or other rhinoplasty procedures to shape nose/turbinate.
