New Webpage on the Deviated Septum and Its Correction (Septoplasty)

There is a new webpage describing what a deviated septum is and how it is corrected complete with illustrations. For those who don't know what a deviated septum is, one must first know what a nasal septum is. A nasal septum is a intra-nasal wall that separates the right and left sides of the nasal cavity.
