Septoplasty

Septoplasty is a surgical procedure that corrects breathing problems caused by a deviated septum, the narrow wall of cartilage and bone that divides the two nostrils and nasal cavities. Dr. Norman Rowe, M.D. sees dozens of patients every year with problems breathing through their nasal cavities. This issue is often due to the septum not being positioned properly, causing one nostril to have restricted airflow.

Unlike Rhinoplasty, Septoplasty is a medically necessary procedure and not an elective cosmetic procedure. This means that Septoplasty is covered by most insurance companies and we can handle all the necessary paperwork to assist you with insurance coverage.
