Collaboration of Experts
Our nose and sinus specialists work together with allergists, immunologists, neurosurgeons and eye experts to care for patients with complex or multiple sinus, nasal and asthma issues.
Together, we can tackle everything from smell and taste disorders to sinus and nose problems, including cancer, often with in-office procedures.
In the past, conventional wisdom pointed to a deviated septum as the sole reason for nasal obstruction. The usual fix: a septoplasty to correct the angle of the nose bone.
Recently, ENT specialists have discovered other causes of nasal obstructions. Both your lateral wall and nasal valve can collapse from weakness, narrowing your nose. This can bother you when you're breathing hard, like when exercising.
At UVA, we specialize in techniques to fix this type of nasal obstruction. We install small cartilage grafts into the side of the nose for support. These grafts allow your nose to open and give you the chance to breathe normally again.
