Finding a Surgeon You Trust for a Septal Perforation- Take Your Time
Fixing a septal perforation is difficult and can be tricky, but in the right situation can work out very nicely and well. Whether or not it makes sense to fix the perforation depends on its size, location, and the symptoms that is causing. Fortunately, there are plenty of great doctors out there. My recommendation would be to make appointments with several different experienced nasal surgeons in your area. When you've narrowed down your choice, asked to speak to previous patients to hear about their experience. Take your time. You will find the right person. Good luck.
