Functional Nasal Surgery in Portland
Functional nasal surgery encompasses various procedures used to address the nasal architecture, which can sometimes be a cause of nasal obstruction. Depending on the severity of the problem, a septoplasty (surgery to straighten the nasal septum) can be done either through an endonasal (in the nose, no external incisions) approach, or an open approach (requires external incisions). The goal of functional nasal surgery is always to improve nasal breathing.
