Dr. Pasha has performed well over 3,000 septoplasties in the operating room but is now performing a newer technique in the office called Balloon Septoplasty.
The wall that divides the left and right side of the nasal cavity is called the septum. It is made of thin bone and cartilage and if “bent” or “deviated” can cause nasal obstruction and sinus related problems. Traditionally, deviated nasal septums are repaired in the operating room with a operative procedure called a septoplasty. Similar to in-office balloon sinuplasty, Dr. Pasha is now utilizing the same balloon technology as a tool in the office to repair the septum without requiring you to go to the operating room. For those who qualify, an in-office balloon septoplasty has the advantage of requiring no general anesthesia, minimal to no post-operative pain, no time off work, no splints or packing, and finally you save on hospital costs.
