A deviated nasal septum is one of the most common causes of chronicnasal obstruction. Patients suffering from this obstruction need to seek the assistance of a trained and certified Sinus Surgeon. Dr. Arthur Wu and his colleagues are highly trained in Los Angeles Deviated Septum Surgery and can improve a patient’s quality of life by correcting this common nasal obstruction.
The septum usually sits on a crest of bone in the middle of the nose and divides it into the right and left nasal cavity, ideally both equal in size. Birth trauma or other traumas later on in life may cause the septum to slip off of this crest of bone and deflect to either the right or left side.
Sometimes, the septum can be buckled like an “S” and have deviations to both sides of the nasal cavity, obstructing both sides. The septum can also have bony or cartilaginous spurs which can also cause obstruction. Resulting nasal obstruction can block the normal drainage of the sinuses, cause headaches, and worsen obstructive sleep apnea. A surgical procedure called septoplasty may be indicated to correct a deviated nasal septum.
