In brief: Septoplasty

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

In brief: Surgery

A deviated septum can only be corrected with a surgery called septoplasty, where the crooked portions of the bone and cartilage are reshaped or removed to enable the whole structure to be in the midlie of the nose.

In brief: 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.
