Septoplasty performed by Dr. Angela Sturm can correct your deviated septum and help you start breathing comfortably through your nose.
What Is Septoplasty?
Septoplasty in Houston is a surgical procedure performed to improve breathing ability by straightening a deviated septum and widening the nasal airways. Dr. Sturm is extremely experienced when it comes to nasal surgeries, and over time, she has been able to perfect her septoplasty technique to ensure that it results in the smoothest, most comfortable possible breathing through the nose. During the septoplasty procedure, she uses precision to carefully straighten the bones and cartilage of the septum, ensuring that any obstructions are removed from the airways. In some cases, she may need to remove small sections of bone and/or cartilage from the septum to fully open up the breathing passages. Typically, septoplasty is performed as a “closed” procedure that does not require any incisions; instead, the adjustments to the septum are made through the nostrils.
