Deviated
Septum

You’ve most likely spoken to a medical professional about your breathing issues and learned you may have a deviated septum. At this point your primary care physician (PCP) may refer you to consult with an ear, nose and throat (ENT) doctor.

 

While having some deviation of the septum is common, a severe deviated septum can block one side of your nose and reduce airflow, causing difficulty breathing through one or both sides of your nose. Pending your concerns and end goals, septoplasty may be an appropriate procedure to straighten your deviated septum and improve your breathing.

 

The Patient Journey® at ADVENT is unique. We use a team-based approach to get to the root cause of your issue and work with you to determine the most efficient and effective solution to help you reach your goals.

Follow-up appointments will be set up following your procedure to ensure your healing process is on track to get you breathing well.

“Before my procedure, I had a lot of headaches on a regular basis – I was missing work, not able to participate in my kids lives or family social life and those have gone away. It’s been very life-changing as I got my life back and I am able to fully engage and enjoy the things we like to do as a family.”
