Its a procedure that corrects cartilage and bone within the nose that has grown off-center. When the bone or cartilage, or both, grow abnormally, it creates a deviated septum. A deviated septum is commonly the cause of many nasal problems including breathing problems, chronic sinus infections, sleep apnea, and even migraine headaches.

According to recent studies, approximately 3 million people in the US have a deviated septum. Many of them have no idea that this is the root cause of their migraine-like symptoms. These migraine symptoms and other issues are commonly blamed on the weather, allergies, or family history. Receiving a proper diagnosis by a physician who understands the source of the problem is the quickest way to finding the solution and obtaining relief.

Septoplasty: Why Dr. Kevin Smith?

Dr. Kevin Smith, founder of the Smith Center located in Houston’s River Oaks neighborhood, has become one of the nation’s leaders in correcting deviated septums and is a source for migraine relief. He is an Ear, Nose and Throat Specialist, and is board certified by the American Board Otolaryngology and the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.

Of the more than 1,200 septoplasty surgeries performed, Dr. Smith currently has an 88% cure rate for migraine sufferers. Of this 88%, 40% have been completely cured of their migraines, while the other 48% are able to alleviate their headaches with the use of over-the-counter pain medicines, like Tylenol and Advil. This incredible success rate has made him one of the most prominent migraine specialists not only in Houston and Texas, but also the nation.

Aside from the high migraine cure rate, Dr. Smith has become one of the foremost experts regarding migraines and other symptoms that stem from a deviated septum. He has spent several decades studying the various links between the two. This research and experience that has lead to so much of his success accurately diagnosing migraines in patients became the catalyst for writing his book, The Migraine Imposter.

This migraine treatment, known as a septoplasty operation, is typically performed at the Smith Center and takes approximately 30 minutes to an hour to perform. The procedure, since it is non-cosmetic, is usually covered by insurance.
