Rhinology (nose diseases) is a specialty of the department of otolaryngology, which examines the diseases of the nose and nose. Nose is an organ that has very important tasks such as breathing, smell, humidifying the air to the lungs. In addition, because the nose is located in the middle of the face, it is of great importance in terms of visuality.
Both congenital and subsequent nasal structural disorders negatively affect a person’s daily life. Deformities inside and outside the nose make it difficult to breathe and reduce a person’s quality of life. In such cases, the disorder needs to be surgically corrected.
The removal of bone curvature in the nose is called septoplasty, rhinoplasty for aesthetic purposes, and septorhinoplasty for both functional and aesthetic purposes.
Rhinology is the whole of the procedures applied for the treatment of nose and sinus diseases. Endoscopic sinus surgery, rhinoplasty, nose and sinus diseases, nose and sinus tumors, and uvulopalatopharyngoplasty applied for both functional and aesthetic purposes, nose and sinus tumors are among the areas of interest in rhinology.
