Surgery of the soft palate (uvulopalatoplasty)

Various techniques are used to correct the soft palate. The most frequent include submucosal coagulation using radiosurgery, which aims to reduce and stiffen back part of the soft palate with bipolar ending. As a consequence, swelling is created on the soft palate and it becomes stiffen, which afterwards reduces snoring. Laser techniques also used in palatoplasty enable in a minimally invasive way to reduce excess mucous membrane in the area of the palate. Another method which decreases the flaccidness of the soft palate includes Pilar technique during which small implants made of special materials which allow to stabilise the tissue and unblock the airway are entered to the palatal tissue.


Removal of the palatine tonsils (tonsillectomy)

Tonsillectomy is a routine surgical procedure which allows to permanently solve a problem of chronic tonsillitis, especially when conservative methods do not bring expected results. The procedure may be performed either under general anaesthesia, when a patient is laid in a supine position with head folded back, or under a local anaesthesia in a sitting position. Palatine tonsils together with their capsule are separated from surrounding tissues.


Removal of the palatine tonsils (tonsillectomy)

In general, indications for tonsillectomy include:

  • chronic tonsillitis
  • recurrent tonsillitis (three or more episodes in the last year, five or more episodes in the last two years, seven or more episodes in the last three years)
  • recurrent peritonsillar abscess
  • focal diseases
  • persistent bad breath caused by abundant production of tonsil stones
  • suspected tonsil tumour.


Procedures that improve nasal patency (septoconchoplasty)

Septoconchoplasty combines two methods: correction of nasal septum and nasal turbinates. Its aim is to reduce nasal obstruction, improve breathing during sleep, eliminate snoring and restore proper functioning of the ciliary apparatus which purpose is to clean and warm inhaled air. Septoplasty involves intranasal cutting of the mucosa that allows to correct deformed part of the cartilage and bone of the nasal septum without leaving scars. The procedure is very precise due to use of endoscopic techniques. It is performed under general or local anaesthesia and lasts for approx. 1 hour. General anaesthesia provides comfort to the patient, enables the appropriate control of the arterial blood pressure, thus reducing bleeding during surgery. At the same time, during correction of the nasal septum surgeon performs conchoplasty which aim is to reduce overgrown turbinates and thereby to restore nasal patency. The procedure is conducted with use of Bipolar thermoablation RFITT performed with Celon applicator.
