Septoplasty is the procedure for correcting the disfigured septum, allowing for improved airflow through the nose.
Adenoidectomy is the procedure to remove the adenoids to prevent the persistent nasal obstruction or sinus infection causing throat complications.
Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty is a surgical procedure for removing the soft tissue at the back of the throat, including the soft palate and uvula.
Tongue base reduction
Tongue Base Reduction is a procedure for treating obstructive sleep apnea by removing significant amount of tissue without compromising the tongue function.
Turbinates cleans the air passing through the nostrils.Turbinates reduction surgery is done to fix blocked airways improving breathing while sleeping
Snoring & Obstructive Sleep Apnoea
Snoring is a common condition, especially among adults, which is often overlooked. Snoring is the result of obstructed nasal airways and could be a sign of a serious health problem, including sleep apnoea. Sleep apnoea causes a variety of problems in the longer run. Possible ways to reduce the after effects are:
Lose weight if you are overweight
Raise up the head of your bed
Use nasal strips or an external nasal spray
Before providing a suitable treatment option, our ENT specialists will review your symptoms, including a physical examination, and after that he will examine and give you a complete insight regarding your treatment modality.
Polysomnography or sleep study is the test performed for diagnosing sleep disorders. The test records brain waves, breathing, heart rate, as well as the oxygen level in your blood along with the leg and eye movements during your sleep. Polysomnography is performed to track the nighttime sleep patterns of a patient suffering from a sleeping disorder. The goal of polysomnography is to determine whether the patient is suffering from conditions like REM Behavior Disorder, Periodic Limb Movement Disorder, Obstructive Sleep Apnea, Complex or Mixed Sleep Apnea, Circadian Rhythm Sleep-Wake Disorders, Central Sleep Apnea, or Bruxism. Based on the test results, treatment is offered.
DISE (Drug Induced Sleep Endoscopy
DISE, also known as Sleep Nasoendoscopy (SNE), is a powerful tool for studying the dynamic airway in a sleeping patient. It is a technique to characterize upper airway collapse in patients with Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). An ENT specialist performs DISE during natural sleep in order to tailor a surgical approach for a patient’s specific condition. The purpose of DISE is to validate whether the pattern of airway collapse recorded mirrors that of natural sleep.
Nasal CPAP or Nasal Continuous Positive Airway Pressure therapy is a non-surgical approach that provides a steady airflow to the lungs through the nose. Nasal CPAP is the standard treatment prescribed for patients suffering from Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). Obstructive Sleep Apnoea is a sleeping disorder that disrupts normal breathing and interrupts deep sleep. On the other hand, infants with underdeveloped lungs also benefit from Nasal Continuous Positive Airway Pressure therapy, as it allows them to breathe more easily. Frequent pauses in breathing stop the airflow to the lungs, which results in the body’s natural defenses kick-starting the breathing again. This leads to the person getting out of deep sleep.
