    Adenoids CONTACT Outpatient Procedures for Snoring Sleep Apnoea Radiofrequency stiffening of the palate In snoring or mild to moderate sleep apnoea stiffening the palate through the use of RF is a simple and effective way to reduce symptoms A disposable probe is inserted into the soft palate and a predetermined level of RF energy is delivered to the palate This will tighten the palate over several weeks resulting in a decrease level of snoring and airway collapse Radiofrequency Reduction of the Nasal Turbinate This is especially effective in patients who have persistent nasal obstruction due to turbinate hypertrophy which is not responsive to medical treatment After an injection of local anaesthesia a disposable RF probe is used to strink the turbinates This will result in maximal improvement in airway over 2 to 4 weeks This is a well tolerated procedure patient can return to work the next day Radiofrequency Reduction of the Tongue Base Tonsil This technique uses radiofrequency to reduce the bulk of the tonsils and tongue base mass The procedure is performed under local anaesthesia Pillar Implant The Pillar implant procedure is performed under local anaesthesia The Pillar Procedure involves the placement of three tiny woven polyester inserts that stiffen the structure of the soft palate to help reduce both the vibration that causes snoring and the ability of the soft palate to obstruct the airway Rather than surgically removing tissue the Pillar Procedure is designed to stiffen the soft palate Once in place the inserts add structural support in the muscular layer of the soft palate and induce a natural tissue response that secures them within the palate Over the next 8 12 weeks fibrosis creates additional stiffening and structural support of the soft palate Reshaping of the Palate using Laser or RF The redundant soft tissue is removed either by RF or Laser This will widen the airway and reduce snoring This is generally performed under local anaesthesia Book an appointment with HealthSense Specialist Dr YT Pang to look at your ENT problems and get cured Search Quick Enquiry Name Phone Required Your Email Address Required Country Your Country Afghanistan Albania Algeria American Samoa Andorra Angola Anguilla Antigua and Barbuda Argentina Armenia Aruba Australia Austria Azerbaijan Bahamas Bahrain Bangladesh Barbados Belarus Belgium Belize Benin Bermuda Bhutan Bolivia Bosnia and Herzegovina Botswana Timor Leste Brazil Brunei Darussalam Bulgaria Burkina Faso Burundi Cambodia Cameroon Canada Cape Verde Cayman Islands Central African Republic Chad Chile China Colombia Comoros Congo Congo the Democratic Republic of the Cook Islands Costa Rica Croatia Cuba Cyprus Czech Republic Denmark Djibouti Dominica Dominican Republic Ecuador Egypt El Salvador Equatorial Guinea Eritrea Estonia Ethiopia Falkland Islands Malvinas Faroe Islands Fiji Finland France French Guiana French Polynesia Gabon Gambia Georgia Germany Ghana Gibraltar Greece Greenland Grenada Guadeloupe Guam Guatemala Guinea Guinea Bissau Guyana Haiti Holy See Vatican City State Honduras Hong Kong Hungary Iceland India Indonesia Iran Islamic Republic of Iraq Ireland Israel Italy Jamaica Japan Jordan Kazakhstan Kenya Kiribati Korea Republic of Kuwait Kyrgyzstan Latvia
