The midline of the nose consists of a cartilage and bony nasal septum. These separate the two sides of the nasal cavity. A bend or deviation in the septum can be something you’re born with or can occur through injury. To correct this, we often perform an outpatient surgery called a septoplasty – where an incision is made inside the nasal cavity and the obstructing portion of bone and cartilage is removed.
The nasal turbinates are three bony and soft-tissue structures lining the sides of the nasal cavity. As part of the normal nasal cycle, the turbinates alternately swell and enlarge. In some persons, the turbinates can be excessively large, resulting in significant nasal obstruction. Allergy treatment, typically with nasal steroid sprays, may help to decrease this swelling. When allergy management does sufficiently relieve nasal obstruction, the inferior turbinates can be surgically reduced. In many cases this can be done as an office procedure.
People frequently develop a persistent cough following a common cold. A cycle may develop in which episodic coughing results in throat irritation, which causes more coughing and more irritation. The larynx then becomes even more susceptible to other irritants such as acid reflux and posterior drainage from the nose. It is important to break the coughing cycle by maintaining adequate hydration, taking throat lozenges, and avoiding throat clearing.
Snoring typically is caused by vibration of tissues within the oral pharynx (the uvula and palate). Nasal obstruction can be another cause. In mild snoring, these measures may help: losing weight, sleeping on your side rather than your back, avoiding sedatives and alcohol. Surgery can reduce the size of the soft tissue of uvula and palate, and also relieve nasal obstruction. Otolaryngology uses a carbon dioxide laser to remove excess uvula and palatal soft tissue, an office procedure using local anesthesia. Office turbinate surgery may also help snoring by improving nasal breathing.
Sleep apnea is quite common but most people who have sleep apnea don’t know they have it until someone else witnesses it and tells them. Sleep apnea causes a person to take shallow breaths or even pause while breathing during sleep. The breathing pauses can last only a few seconds but can go on for minutes. Sleep apnea patients usually snore and they sometimes make a loud snort sound during the episode. They often suffer from daytime sleepiness because their sleep is interrupted even if the snoring and the breathing pauses don’t actually wake them up. The most common type of sleep apnea is obstructive sleep apnea. In this condition, the airway collapses or becomes blocked during sleep. This causes shallow breathing or breathing pauses.

This was my first surgery, and your staff did a fantastic job of calming my nerves before the procedure.

I know she’s 16, but she is my baby. Everyone was kind and caring towards my daughter’s welfare. I felt she received more personal attention and care at the surgical centre versus a hospital. All of us were very impressed by everyone’s kindness and professionalism from the top ent specialist in chennai. God bless you all! You are a great staff.

Everyone was incredibly nice to my son and gave him their whole attention. The nurse that came to the waiting area to speak with us before returning us was extremely polite and friendly. That doctor that treated my son was one of the top ent doctors in chennai. My only first concern about choosing the surgery facility over the hospital was that everyone seemed both confident and comfortable working with youngsters (hospital). Everyone on staff was really compassionate and eager to ensure that my son was comfortable and had everything he required.
