Del Rey Sinus & Allergy Institute specializes in effective procedures such as septoplasty. This surgery straightens the nasal septum by adjusting or trimming the cartilage and/or bone in the nose.
Most people have a deviated septum (or crooked wall between the nostrils) to some degree. But when your deviation is severe, it can block one side of your nose and reduce airflow, obstructing your breathing through one or both sides of your nose. Another unpleasant, potential side effect of septal deviation is that the reduced passageway can dry the inside of the nose, resulting in crusting or bleeding. If you have trouble breathing or other symptoms, it could be because of a deviated septum.
We use the most advanced, minimally invasive techniques to quickly and effectively repair and correct the septum so you can breathe better again. Our surgeons use precise CT scans to get a clear map of the cause of deviation. To correct the deviation, the doctor will make small incisions inside the nose, and then correct by trimming or repositioning the cartilage or bone.

Septoplasty requires use of anesthesia, and our minimally invasive techniques help ensure that pain is minimized and recovery takes place as quickly as possible. Our patients typically are back to work and getting on with their lives within just a couple of days!
Don’t just take our word for it. Here’s one review from our Yelp page:
I went to Dr. Sigari when my breathing problems and sinus pressure became unbearable. He determined that I needed a septoplasty as well as a balloon sinuplasty. First let me say that the experience with his office staff was extremely professional and courteous. The procedure was done in his office with local anesthesia with no discomfort. I cannot express how happy I am with the results. Finally, I can breathe without nasal sprays and my sinus pressure is completely gone. – Carilyn J.
