Don Eliminating Sinus Infections and Sleep Apnea Smith Center Septoplasty Patient Testimonial
My name is Don Graff and I had a Septoplasty done where they went in and straightened my deviated septum. I was not sleeping very well so I was tired during the day um with the chronic sinus infection that I had was not being able to breathe very well. Uh when I went in to see Smith found out that the right side of my nose was almost completely closed off. I probably had that maybe all my life we didn't know for sure. Uh Smith took a look at that and said â€œOh yeah we can straighten that out for you it will improve your breathing.
Um maybe clean out some sinus problemsâ€� Another complication I was having was chronic sinus infections. He thought this would probably help that and uh decided to go on ahead and go ahead with the procedure, gonna have that cleaned out. I also had a Uvuloplasty done where he cut off a little bit of the uvula because I had sleep apnea and Smith thought that might help with my sleep apnea also. Smith said you know so you're going to be able to breathe like you haven't before and I thought oh yeah sure we'll see and uh he was right and now that I am breathing better
and that I can sleep better uh I'm uh getting more oxygen into my system. It's really just made an all around improvement just about everything I think.
