How do healthcare providers treat a deviated septum?

It depends on the severity of your condition. Most people don’t need deviated septum treatment because they have little to no symptoms. You can treat mild symptoms with medication. But if a deviated nasal septum keeps you from breathing properly, you might need surgery.

  • Medications : Mild septal deviation may cause occasional symptoms. You can treat these symptoms with over-the-counter (OTC) medications, including:
    • Nasal Decongestants
    • Nasal Steroid Sprays
    • Antihistamines
  • Septoplasty : The most common deviated septum treatment is septoplasty. If you have breathing problems, frequent sinus infections or other bothersome symptoms, a septoplasty may be an option for you.

During a septoplasty, a surgeon reshapes your septum. This may involve adding or removing bone and cartilage.

Typically, septoplasty is an outpatient procedure. It takes between 30 and 90 minutes to complete.
