These referring doctors know that Dr. Joseph uses the latest surgical techniques, like septoplasty and endoscopic sinus surgery, to correct chronic sinus problems, to get and keep patients well.

Patients desiring rhinoplasty surgery may benfit by the skills of an otolaryngologist, since many prospective rhinoplasty patients require concomitant otolaryngologic procedures. Rhinoplasty surgery may be performed in synergy with major septal repair, internal and external nasal valvular repair, turbinate reduction, and endoscopic sinus surgery when both cosmetic and functional concerns coexist. The prospective patient benefits when both functional and cosmetic nasal concerns may be addressed at a single operation, and the surgeon benefits from the ability to harvest septal cartilage for grafting and reconstruction
