Snoring surgery and tonsillectomy by laser

Laser surgery to improve nasal breathing, to stop nasal congestion and snoring

Nasal congestion and snoring are common nuisances.
Nasal polyps, nasal septum deviation, enlargement of turbinate, uvula can be among the causes of snoring. Renewal of nasal congestion and snoring is common after conventional treatments.
Using conventional devices, it is hardly possible to treat capillaries of nasal mucosa, soft palate, septum growths, and nasal cavity polyps without serious bleeding.
Laser technology has better options.
The up to date diode laser transmits laser beam to the capillaries of the mucosa via thin glass fibre, ensuring bloodless treatment and infection free healing.
Thanks to the immediate termination of bleeding, neither nasal tampons, nor hospitalisation is necessary. Surgeries are carried out either under general or under local anaesthesia.

Tonsillectomy, adenoidectomy

Tonsillectomy is performed at our clinic by diode laser surgery, under general or local anaesthesia. Removal of tonsils, adenoids or partial removal of enlarged tonsils causing airway obstruction in children is carried out free from bleeding and complications, with minimal pain and quick wound healing. Time to spend at the clinic: 1 day, for patients living outside of Budapest, 2 days.

Laser surgery of pharynx

Surgical disorders of the larynx are cured by laser technology. Surgery is made under general anaesthesia, time to spend at the clinic: 1 day.

Soft laser therapy

Treatment of allergic rhinitis, herpes, aphtha

The low output, so called soft lasers have pain reliving, inflammation reducing, and wound healing effect. 
Many disorders, among others herpes, aphtha, ulcers, chronic inflammations can be treated efficiently. Inflammations are healing quicker and less painfully by the aid of laser therapy. Dose of medication can be reduced in allergic rhinitis, therefore this therapy is highly recommended for breast feeding, pregnant mother, or for those, who cannot take medicines for whatever reason.

Lasers in otolaryngology

Laser is one of the leading technologies of the 21st century. Dimension of devices is continuously decreasing, their power and efficiency keeps on increasing. The most up to date diode laser tools are in use at the otolaryngology of our clinic, together with several other laser devices.

Two types of laser beams are in use: low output (soft) high output (surgical).

Among others, soft laser treatments can be used for relieving pain, allergic complaints; for replacing or enhancing medication. High output laser has revolutionized ear-nose-throat procedures. Surgeries became more precise, efficient, with less bleeding and pain, and quicker recovery.
