crooked nose, breathing problems, sinusitis
The only way to make the diagnosis of chronic sinusitis is by obtaining a CAT scan of the sinuses to determine if there is any polyps/ infection inside the sinuses themselves. There are multiple issues that can cause breathing problems in the nose which include a deviated septum, valve collapse, allergies, and turbinate hypertrophy. Each one of these are treated differently with either medicine or surgery. A broken nose can be repaired with a rhinoplasty. All these procedures can be addressed simultaneously, under one anesthetic.
