I'm extremely happy with the surgery Dr Bowman performed to correct a very deviated septum. He told me afterward that the cartilage had been fractured in several places. The septum leaned almost all the way over to the one side of the left nostril practically blocking it. If you blocked my right nostril and asked me to breathe through the left - I could barely get any air through there at all.

He fixed it for me and the first three days were very difficult and breathing at night for the first 3 weeks was a bit of a trial as there was still some stuffiness in the nose. Now, though I can breathe very well during the day or night and my husband says I no longer snore.

I have not needed a decongestant spray at all and I love being able to breathe well again. I do use a netipot twice daily and I think that has helped me very much. I no longer suffer from regular nose bleeds or big "crusties" in my nose.

Dr Bowman warned me that the septum may never be completely straight and he is correct. There is still some slanting to the left, but the improvement to me is dramatic and completely worth it.

I am extremely happy with his services and his expertise. To top it all off with - he's a nice guy :) I would recommend him without hesitation.
