Breath of Fresh Air

Publish Date: 10/12/2017

Woman on mountain breathing fresh air“Life-changing.”  Those are the words a 63-year old female patient recently used to describe the results she experienced after facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, Gregory Branham, MD, corrected her deviated septum. For years she lived with a severely deviated septum that greatly impacted her ability to breathe and smell.  While many people can live with small deviations in their septum, there are others who may benefit from surgical intervention.

Recurrent nosebleeds should not be ignored.
