Malformed Septum, Nasal and Sinus Reconstuction

Malformed Septum, Nasal and Sinus Reconstuction

“My review,” where should I start” ? I guess at the beginning is the best place, I’m a 59yr old man that had a history of poor breathing. My wife would tell me that I wake up suddenly gasping for breath, I self diagnosed my problem as sleep Apnea . I made an appointment with my wife’s Ear, Nose Throat Physician . He told us that the CT SCAN Revealed that my septum had been broken is four spots and my nasal and sinus passage ways were nearly closed off. I asked him,” If you fix my septum and sinuses would it straighten my nose” the answer was NO that would have to be someone else. After doing some research, that someone else is Dr. Michael Setzen he not only repaired all of my nasal problems BUT straightened and re-aligned my nose. No matter what course of action you decide to take Dr. Mike makes you feel comfortable, he is very easy to talk too. His staff is the BEST they called and followed up on my recovery every day of the first week after the surgery. I don’t no of any other 59yr old men with the same nasal problems as me ,But if anyone asks,” Hey what is different about you” I tell’em I had my nose fixed by Dr. Setzen. Don’t wait 40yrs like I did to have your breathing problems seen too. Do it while your young and enjoy aroma of spring and your Grand Ma’s home cooking.”
