Center for Minimally-invasive Surgery of the Nose, the Sinuses and the anterior Skull Base

  • Diagnosis


    Symptoms and history
    are important.

    Individualized counselling and diagnostic management
    ensure an adequate treatment policy for each patient
    on an individual basis

  • Allergy


    25-30% of the population in western industrial
    societies suffer from allergies.

    Our long experience with allergy diseases enable us
    to provide you with dhe adequate diagnostic
    measures and treatment.

  • Nasal Airway Obstruction

    Nasal Airway Obstruction

    Nasal airway obstruction has a significant
    negative impact on patient's lives

    We have been involved with diseases of the nose and
    paranasal sinuses for almost 30 years and can therefore
    recommend the adequate therapeutic approach for diseases.

  • About the operation

    About the operation

    About 1/3 of the population
    suffers from snoring

    Our experience with different aspects of sleep medicine
    lasts more than 15 years. Our goals are making an exact diagnosis
    with screening and - if necessary - sleep laboratory evaluation and
    then advise you on legitimate therapeutic approaches.

  • Chronic rhinosinusitis

    Chronic rhinosinusitis

    Surgical procedures in the head are regarded
    as particularly dangerous by many patients.

    After thousands of pre-operative counselling sessions we know
    that operations in the head and neck area are considered as extremly
    dangerous by the patients. Therefore trust and safety are the top priorities of our work

  • Snoring


    About 1/3 of inflammatory sinus
    diseases become chronic.

    We have been involved in research and diagnostic management
    of nasal and paranasal sinus diseases for more than 25 years.
    This long experience enables us to give you adequate advice
    on how to treat those kinds of diseases.

How to find us

Therapeutic Approach to Snoring

Sleep-related breathing problems include snoring and obstructive sleep apnea (periods of apnea [failure to breath] of varying frequency and duration occur during sleep) can have serious medical and social consequences. About one-third of adults snore, but only 4% of men and 2% of women suffer from obstructive sleep apnea. Children can also have problems, often because of enlarged tonsils or adenoids. Symptoms typically include severe daytime drowsiness because of reduced sleep at night, fatigue, lack of concentration and in children, disturbances in development.

Since patients themselves cannot tell if they have harmless snoring or the far more serious sleep apnea, a precise diagnostic approach and expert counseling are required for appropriate treatment. Sleep medicine has made great progress in both diagnosis and therapy of sleep disturbances. Nonetheless, because snoring is so common, the lay press is full of dubious recommendations and many only quasi-medical devices and plans are available for treatment. Most of these products not only benefit primarily the manufacturer and seller, but also serve to delay the institution of appropriate therapy for the patient.

We have been involved in various aspects of sleep medicine for over 15 years. Our goals are to make an exact diagnosis with screening and sleep laboratory evaluation and then advise you on legitimate therapeutic approaches which have the greatest likelihood of benefitting you.
These included weight reduction, medical and surgical measures, prostheses to alter airway patency and nasal continuous positive airway pressure breathing systems. For some patients, primarily these who are categorized as “habitual snorers” without apnea, surgical procedures can bring benefits. Laser or radio frequency re-modeling of the tonsils, soft palate and uvula, as well as corrective procedures for the turbinates and septum to ease nasal breathing, is the best alternative to free such patients from their symptoms. Depending on the patient’s symptoms and findings, each operation is carefully individualized. Sometimes a “multi-level” approach is needed to address all the factors interfering with adequate breathing during sleep.
