If the septal deviation is mild, nasal sprays may be adequate to control the symptom of nasal congestion; however, these sprays must be used indefinitely. Fortunately, there is a minimally invasive procedure that corrects a deviated septum. This procedure, called a septoplasty takes about an hour and is performed by Dr. Davis in a nearby operating room. Every deviated septum is different, so Dr. Davis uses an endoscopically assisted approach which allows him to precisely evaluate your septum during the procedure and perform an operation that is appropriate for your particular nose. Dr. Davis does not pack the nose and when you wake up you will not have black and blue eyes or a nasal cast.
