  • Q. I have some bad breathing problems and have been told I should get a septoplasty. Is this what I need?

    A. The only way to know for sure is to see a qualified Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) doctor or Head and Neck Surgeon. (Head and Neck Surgeons are ENTs with additional training.) Without seeing you in person, there is no way to know. It could mean that you require a septoplasty, however, severe breathing problems may require more testing. A common breathing problem called sleep apnea occurs when you unknowingly stop breathing during your sleep. This may require a sleep study. Again, only a qualified specialist should determine the proper route of treatment.
