Deviated Septum


A healthy nasal passageway would have equal sizes on the left and right sides. In spite of this, up to 80 percent of people have an off-center nasal septum. In this case, the septum is deviated, which may or may not lead to certain symptoms.


A badly deviated or crooked septum often causes difficulty breathing through the nose, with one side being worse than the other. Crooked septums can sometimes interfere with sinus drainage and lead to sinus infections.


One or more of the following may occur:

  • Nasal obstruction or difficulty breathing
  • Bleeding nose
  • A sinus infection
  • Infants and young children may have noisy breathing during sleep
  • Sleeping by mouth in adults

Depending on the severity of the condition, treatment can range from no medical intervention to surgery.


To discuss diagnosis and treatment options, please book an appointment with our specialist.
