Do you constantly suffer from a runny nose, chronic sinusitis (sinus infections), periodic nosebleeds, frequent headaches and impaired sense of smell? If you do, you are likely to have sinus problems or be suffering from a deviated septum, and may require septoplasty. The condition is extremely common, affecting roughly 1 in 10 Americans. Often, as the symptoms can be similar to those of a cold, they are ignored, allowing the disease to progress and potentially lead to complications. Israeli specialists have vast experience with this type of treatment and will help you to quickly get rid of the symptoms.
Nasal septum deviation refers to a condition when the bone and/or cartilage part of the wall that separates the nasal passages are abnormally bent. It can be congenital or result from a facial injury (i.e. a broken nose). Left untreated, it can lead to breathing difficulties, and cause snoring and sleep apnea. It's a common misconception that the condition can be treated conservatively. That only holds true for a small percentage of patients. In most cases, conservative therapy will provide only temporary relief, after which the symptoms will come back, more pronounced than before. The treatment that offers the best outcome and the only one that can guarantee a full recovery is a surgery called septoplasty.

Sadly, sinus problems causing chronic sinusitis and a slew of other symptoms will not go away on their own, and can’t be treated by medications. The stuffed nose and headaches will eventually grow stronger, to the point they can no longer be relieved by pain-killers, and affect your day-to-day activities more and more. But that’s not even the worst part – left untreated, sinus problems will lead to more severe problems including inflammation with formation of pus pockets.
