Septoplasty (Correcting Bent Central Bone Of Nose)
Septoplasty is effective for straightening a crooked nose by reshaping the walls of the nasal passage. A crooked nose becomes straight with Septoplasty. Although the procedure corrects the nose shape, its real purpose is to clear the blocked nasal passage and ease airflow to facilitate smooth breathing and stop snoring.
Nasal Polyp Removal
Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery (FESS) is the standard surgical procedure for removing nasal polyps. The endoscopic surgical procedure entails the use of a tiny camera fitted at the end of a long tube that the surgeon inserts in the nostrils. The camera provides clear vision inside the nostrils and guides the surgeon within the sinus cavities to remove polyps.
Fungal Sinusitis Treatment
Surgery is mandatory to treat fungal sinusitis although it begins with anti-fungal medications after the doctor diagnoses and confirms that it is fungal sinusitis. The doctor might prescribe Amphotericin B of appropriate dosage (2 grams per day) and replace it with itraconazole or ketoconazole as the patient responds to the treatment.
Nasal Tumor Removal
To remove tumors from the nasal turbinates doctors recommend medical maxillectomy, a surgical procedure. For removing tumors on the nose exterior, it might require removing a part or the entire nose.
