Endoscopic Septoplasty and traditional Septoplasty are a type of nose surgery used to correct deviated septums. Endoscopic Septoplasty involves using an endoscope, a thin, flexible tube with a light source and camera attached at the end, to view inside the nose. Traditional septoplasty is done with a nasal speculum and an endoscope. Are you experiencing chronic nasal congestion, difficulty breathing, or recurring sinus issues? Septoplasty at NJ ENT offers a definitive solution to correct a deviated septum, providing lasting relief and improving overall nasal function.

Symptoms of Deviated Septum

Common deviated septum symptoms include difficulty breathing through the nose, frequent sinus infections, and nasal congestion or blockage. In some cases, a deviated nasal septum can also lead to snoring and sleep apnea. Those with deviated nasal septums may also experience frequent nosebleeds as well as facial pain or headaches due to pressure in the sinuses. If you’re experiencing any of these deviated septum symptoms, it’s important to schedule an appointment here at NJ ENT to review possible treatments that can help improve your quality of life. The sooner deviated septum is identified and treated appropriately, the easier it is to manage.

Reasons for Surgery

Both forms of septoplasty can help improve airflow in patients who suffer from nasal obstruction due to a deviated septum. For both types of septoplasty , the incisions are hidden within the nose and cartilage is reshaped or removed to repair the obstruction. Both surgeries are minimally invasive and recovery times are usually short. Septoplasty can help improve a patient’s quality of life by reducing snoring, breathing problems, sinus infections, and recurring headaches. Septoplasty is considered to be a safe procedure with minimal risks of complications or adverse events. Septoplasty can be beneficial for long-term nasal health and is an effective solution for individuals suffering from deviated septums.

Septoplasty Procedure

Septoplasty is typically performed as an outpatient procedure and can take anywhere from 30 minutes to two hours. In this procedure, your surgeon at NJ ENT will insert a small endoscope into the patient’s nose with the help of a local anesthesia. The endoscope transmits images onto a monitor so that the doctor can clearly view inside the nose. Surgical instruments are then used to move any cartilage or bone obstructions out of the way to improve airflow through the nasal passages.

Recovery and Results

Post-septoplasty, recovery typically involves minimal downtime. Most patients can return to their normal activities within a week. Some individuals may experience mild swelling, congestion, or nasal drainage, which usually resolves in the days following the procedure. The results of septoplasty become increasingly noticeable as nasal breathing improves, contributing to an overall enhancement in respiratory function.

If you think Septoplasty may be the right solution for you, speak to your NJ ENT doctor about whether this type of procedure is the best option for your condition. Septoplasty can result in improved breathing ability and a better quality of life overall!

Reviews of Our ENT Services

After seeing my fifth ENT, Dr. Undavia is the first Doctor who actually listened to me. I had two CT scans that he actually took the time to look at as well as the written reports. He has a great bedside manner and I finally felt that I found the right doctor. I actually drove an hour and a half for my appointment yesterday, and it was well worth it. Today I received the text message first thing in the morning about setting up my surgery. I was texting with Regina who is also amazing and answered any question that I had. I was able to set up my surgery date with ease. Even down to the receptionist, who was super bubbly, and just had a great personality. The building an office itself was just good. Clean and friendly and welcoming. I trust that Dr. Undavia won’t disappoint when I have my surgery in December. Great experience!

I traveled from Toms River, NJ to Marlton based on the excellent reviews for Dr. Reddy. Location, wait time, the office, his assistant and his attention to my issues exceeded my expectations. I didn’t feel rushed and he thoroughly explained everything regarding treatment options. I highly recommend him for all your ENT needs.

Dr Gregory Smith is a great doctor. He performed surgery on me 18 months ago and this follow up showed great results. I recommend him to anyone needed ENT help.

I couldn’t be more thrilled with Dr. Undavia. When I first came to the office I had ruptured my ear drum. I was under another Doctor’s care and after 1 month I was no better and in so much pain. Dr. Undavia was recommended by a friend. After just 2 weeks my condition improved tremendously. I would highly recommend Dr. Undavia to anyone looking for an ENT. He is caring and kind and so is his nurse. Thank you Dr. Undavia
