Crooked/Deformed Nose

“Doctor Setzen did my nose surgery when I was 16. Ever doctor i went to turned me down because they said it was too difficult a surgery. When I met Dr. Setzen he was caring, compassionate, thorough, and up to the task. His honesty about how my nose may look after the surgery was appreciated. Despite facing numerous obstacles, it had a terrific outcome. The difference in my nose functionally as well as visually is impressive. I would refer Dr. Setzen to anyone in need of nasal surgery.”

I Can Breathe and No Longer Have Sinus Headaches

“Dr. Setzen surgically corrected my deviated septum and removed some rather large polyp’s from my sinuses. Prior to the surgery I was experiencing sinus headaches with many repeated infections. Now I can breathe great with no sinus headaches since the surgery. Dr. Setzen is a patient, kind, highly skilled physician who always took the time to explain the procedure and answer all my questions. Follow-up care was great and the best recommendation I can give is that I allowed him to do the successful surgery on my son, daughter and in another couple of years my granddaughter.”

Nasal Congestion and Sinus Problems Fixed with Surgery

“Dr. Setzen takes the time to sit with you and explain everything. He is very thorough, walking you through the visit to the OR if needed. It was nice to have the same doctor who diagnosed and examined me performing the surgery. Repaired my deviated septum with no problems, speedy recovery. Highly recommend.”

Nasal Polyps 10 Years After Surgery

“Dr Setzen operated on me for nasal polyps. It has been 10 years without a recurrence due to the skill of Dr Setzen. He is a thorough, highly proficient surgeon who has monitored me quarterly since my surgery to prevent any recurrence.”

Great Result

“Dr. Setzen corrected my deviated septum. Prior to surgery he discussed the possible outcomes, possible difficulties etc. The outcomes achieved were the best possible. My breathing is better, and the correction has helped the effectiveness of the CPAP machine I am using for my sleep apnea. Moreover, both Dr. Setzen and his staff were most helpful, responsive and supportive throughout the process and follow up.”

Sinus Surgery

“I have been constantly sick with head and chest colds for the last 20 years. My treatment always focused on my lungs and potential allergies. Dr. Setzen did a CAT scan of my sinuses and diagnosed a double deviated septum and clogged sinuses. We scheduled surgery but I was concerned that I have Factor XI blood deficiency which is a clotting issue. In conjunction with a hematologist Dr. Setzen performed the surgery without the need for a prophylactic transfusion (which I was trying to avoid). There was no bleeding issues during or after surgery and I am thrilled with the results. Definitely recommend Dr. Setzen.”

Best Doctor Ever!!

“Dr. Setzen has been caring for me and my family for about 20 years. He is an extraordinarily skilled surgeon. Among other sinus related surgeries, Dr. Setzen reconstructed my nose after a bad skiing accident. His care of the tissue and surrounding area during the surgery left me with very little bruising and swelling. The recovery was a breeze. He also placed ear tubes in my toddler – twice!! Most importantly, after being caught in the collapse of the twin towers, Dr. Setzen organized a team of physicians to administer my care. He is one in a million, and I am so grateful to be under his care.”

Deformed / Crooked Nose, Flattened Nose, Deviated Septum

“Doctor setzen did a phenomenal job fixing my nose. Every doctor turned me down because the procedure was too difficult until we made an appointment with setzen. I was unable to breathe comfortably out of my nose for 8 years and doctor setzen changed that. I’d recommend him for any nose surgery because he is terrific at what he does.”

Deviated Septum

“I first saw Dr. Setzen regarding my deviated septum approximately 4 years ago. After my first consultation, I was very skeptical and decided to put off the surgery. It came to a point where I was unable to sleep at night because of severe breathing problems I was having through my nose. I decided to move forward with the procedure. I am happy to report that this surgery has changed my life. I no longer have trouble sleeping at night, have a much easier time exercising on the treadmill, and I no longer get headaches. I would highly recommend Dr. Setzen and his staff to complete this procedure for you if you suffer from the same symptoms that I did.”
