Surgical Treatment

In most cases the blocked or narrowed airway causes a massive soft tissue vibrations which is generate noise.

The goal of the surgery is to identify the narrowest point, and create smooth airflow to avoid turbulence.

The most common mechanical obstructive component in our airways:

  • Adenoid / Tonsil enlargement

  • Small or collapsing nostrils
  • Deviated nasal septum
  • Enlarged nasal turbinate and/or nasal polyps
  • Large soft palate or uvula
  • Obstruction at the back of the tongue
  • Abnormality around the voice box

The location of the obstruction could be identified during your consultation with Dr. Levente.

Outpatient procedures

Somnoplasty is an office procedure which uses low power and low temperature radio-frequency energy to increase the stiffness inside the soft palate and/or the nasal turbinate. This is a minimally invasive procedure which is relatively painless. The new shape of the soft palate or the reduced size of the nasal turbinate will increase the airflow and reduce the vibrations. The procedure usually takes less than twenty minutes.

  • Minor correction of the middle wall of the nose (Septoplasty)
  • Reshaping the soft palate and the uvula
  • Management of the collapsing nostril

In patient procedures

  • Adenoidectomy
  • Septoplasty
  • Turbinate size reduction by shaver
  • Palatoplasty
  • Tonsillectomy
  • Tongue base reduction
  • Epiglottis reshaping
  • Tonsil size reduction or removal
