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.
Why Your Migraine Isn’t an Actual Migraine
Migraines are debilitating headaches that cause you to refrain from any type of interaction.
They pull you away from family and friends, and, for those who suffer from them, they have been the key reason for loss of relationships, jobs, and personal drive. Only those who have endured migraine headaches truly understand how terrible life becomes when they are hit with this unbearable pain.
Interestingly enough, for many, their migraine isn’t technically a migraine at all. It is merely a symptom of a deviated septum. When the bone and/or cartilage within the nose becomes off-center, it creates pressure against sensitive tissue in the nasal area, causing excruciating headache pains. The headaches can attack specific areas of the brain and head, making it appear to be a natural migraine headache.
Dr. Smith has worked with every type of patient and every type of migraine symptom. He truly understands what is taking place within the brain and the nasal cavities, and can quickly and accurately diagnose the problem. This diagnosis can lead to the freedom and pain-free life you’ve been hoping for.
If you are a migraine sufferer, or have any of the other types of deviated septum symptoms, then you may be an ideal candidate for a septoplasty procedure at the Smith Center. To schedule your appointment, contact our Houston-based office at 713-795-0600.
