This surgery is done to correct a deviation of the septum separating the right & left nasal cavities. The commonest symptom will be nasal block.
Unlike the traditional method of packing the nose after surgery, we have adopted a novel method of suturing the septum from inside the nose.
Thus the patient will not have to go through the unpleasant experience of a packed closed nose. He/she can leave the hospital on the same day.
Hospital stay, & recovery:
Admission & discharge:
The patient is admitted the day before & is discharged on the next day.
Duration of surgery:
The surgery takes approximately 1 hour.
We do not usually keep any packs after surgery. The septal flaps are sutured inside the nose. The healing time is 4 weeks.
