The human nose is one of the most vital sense organs. The primary function is to help in the exchange of gases, trapping of dust particles in the air, humidifying the air, and giving you a sense of smell.
It is very important to clean your nose and nostrils so that it prevents you from developing further infections and allergies. Here we let you know the procedures we handle to deal with your nose issues.
Septoplasty is a surgical method that straightens the nose bone and cartilage dividing the space between the nostrils of the nose.

This surgery helps in making the passage of breathing easy. Crooked or deviated nose conditions can occur for birth or after a major accident. The surgery involves local anesthesia and it takes nearly 60 to 90 minutes. Thus, this surgery requires high post-surgery care for about 2 weeks.
Merely less than 1% of patients suffer from continuous bleeding and further complications this may be due to septal perforation and septal hematoma. These would also result in a slight decrease in the sense of smell.

Patients suffering from chronic sinusitis, depression of eye sockets, nasal polyps, and some cancers. There are nearly 5 types of sinus surgery;
