Dr Dennis Chua is one of the accredited ent specialist in Singapore that is experienced in treating patients with blocked nose from deviated septum.
A deviated septum is a fairly common condition. Thankfully most are mild with no significant symptoms. For some patients with severe deviated nasal septum, this can result in blocked nasal passage with blocked nose or even tenderness with resultant headaches. It can also contribute to conditions like obstructive sleep apnoea.
To diagnose this condition, a nasoendoscopy is usually performed in the clinic to assess the severity of the deviation and the remaining nasal passage space available for breathing.
