Mr Yousuf Saleem is an ENT Consultant who specializes in the management of Snoring and Sleep Apnoea.
Snoring is a common problem, which can have a significantly disruptive effect on peoples’ lives. Traditionally the results of surgery for snoring have been disappointing. The reasons for this are inadequate investigations prior to surgery to identify the exact level of obstruction causing the snoring.
The Apneagraph sleep study tells us the exact level of obstruction in patients with snoring, which is very helpful for the ENT Surgeon, as he can plan the surgery according to the site of obstruction, hence giving a much better post-operative result.
The new surgical technique of Coblation enables controlled removal and stiffening of tissue at relatively low temperatures.
