Life changing Surgery…Deviated septum repair/Turbinate surgery

Life changing Surgery…Deviated septum repair/Turbinate surgery

“The reason I made the choice to have this surgery was due to a visit with Dr. Setzen 1 1/2 years ago. I scheduled this appointment because of a sharp pain I felt in my sinuses while I was flying. Upon examination my deviated septum was completely blocking one nostril, my sinuses where completely filled with fluid, and I had over 100 polyps. Dr Setzen’s office was completely equipped to take an MRI on premise which allowed me to receive all the information I needed from one visit to decide and have the surgery. Before going in for surgery I have heard from numerous people how they would not recommend it because they did not see a change since their surgery. Actually, everyone I spoke to that had this surgery said not to. However, my experience with Dr. Setzen made me confident enough to go through with it. After my surgery, recovery was a bit painful at times (which was expected) but very quick. I was back working within a week. Dr. Setzen did not pack my nose with loads of gauze which helped when visiting him the day after surgery. I did not bruise at all which was a pleasant surprise. As uncomfortable as the office visits following the surgery were, Dr. Setzen did what he had to do quickly and effectively as to not create any unnecessary pain. To this day my allergies are gone and my asthma is completely under control with limited medication. I would definitely recommend this surgery and especially Dr. Setzen.”
