Everyone can relax and take a deep breath, thanks to life-changing outpatient surgery provided by WellBridge Surgical.

Individuals who suffer from nasal obstruction may experience symptoms ranging from general discomfort to obstructive sleep apnea. While temporary relief can often be provided through nasal dilator strips, sprays, or allergy medications, permanent relief through nasal valve repair surgery has become an important solution for many individuals who suffer from chronic nasal obstruction.

Potential candidates for nasal valve repair surgery may experience:

  • Difficulty breathing through the nose, especially when lying down or during physical activity,
  • Nasal congestion or stuffiness,
  • Chronic nasal obstruction,
  • Snoring or disturbed sleep, and often,
  • A reduced sense of smell.

The Procedure

When temporary, non-structural solutions are not providing the comfort one needs, WellBridge Surgical offers septoplasty/lateral wall reconstruction. This procedure strengthens the nasal septum to improve airflow and reinforces the nasal sidewalls to prevent collapsing. In extreme cases, cartilage grafts may be used to support the nasal passage.

The diagnosis of chronic nasal obstruction requires a physical examination by an otolaryngologist (ENT doctor) or a nasal endoscopy to visualize the nasal passages. Additionally, nasal airflow tests such as rhinomanometry or acoustic rhinometry may be performed to assess nasal airflow. Once the extent of nasal obstruction is diagnosed, a customized action plan can be determined.

WellBridge Surgical offers several benefits for patients ranging from improved airflow to better sleep, combined with enhanced acuity of smell. WellBridge’s surgeons are uniquely qualified to assess a patient’s needs, and to determine if nasal obstruction treatment is appropriate for them.

It’s important to discuss the potential benefits and challenges with one’s healthcare provider to make an informed decision about whether nasal obstruction surgery at WellBridge is the right choice. Considerations might include low risks of infection or nerve trauma.
