Dr. Hamilton and Dr. Osborne discuss the surgical options for a complex septal perforation case.





A septal perforation is a through-and-through hole in the central partition of the nose (nasal septum). Septal perforations are caused by insult or injury to the septum.


The most common causes of septal perforations are prior surgery, abuse of topical nasal sprays, or illicit drug use. A perforation is diagnosed by nasal rhinoscopy.


Dr. Hamilton has designed several treatment plans based on individual patient goals. Dr. Hamilton’s goal is to make the nose functional and the patient symptom free.
