Thank you for the query.
The report confirms deviated nasal septum (DNS) to right. Definite treatment of DNS is surgery to correct the deviated part. As DNS leads to recurrent infections it will be right choice if he suffers regular nasal infection.
Secondly its a very minor procedure and he will be discharged on the same day.
Hope this helps. Take care.
Thank you.
