Otorhinolaryngology, is a medical branch that diagnose and treat diseases which occur in the ear, nose, throat, neck, and head area. The scope of the Ear Nose and Throat Diseases area is quite extensive. Both of the heal of a simple influenza infection and the correction of intranasal structures obstructing the respiratory tract, are in the field of the ENT.
Functional Nose Surgery
Nose surgeries can be done for cosmetic purposes or for solving physiological problems. Problems that prevent the healthy breathing of the person are removed by functional nose surgery. Operations such as Rhinoplasty, Septorhinoplasty, Concha Surgery, Septal Deviation are aimed at improving respiration and are included in functional nose surgery classification.
Septoplasty (Septal Deviation Surgery)
In case of the shape of the bones and cartilages in the nasal cavity are deformed and prevents respiration resulting from congenital or acquired traumas, nasal cavity is anatomically corrected and breathing problems are solved, this operation is called “Septoplasty”.
Tube Insertion to Adenoid, Tonsil, Ear by Thermal Welding Method
The progress of the technology has also revealed treatment methods that are painless and nonsurgical. Especially in children, Adenoid, Tonsil, Ear tube insertion operations are performed by Thermal Welding method. In the Thermal Welding method, the recovery period is shorter and the pain after operation is also minimized.
Snoring and Sleep Apnea Surgery
Although snoring and sleep apnea disorders are intermingled, they are different concepts. Sleep Apnea can be defined as unable to breathing problem because of obstruction of the respiratory tracts during sleep. Snoring is a noise that result of the trembling throat muscles as the starting to open of the narrowed airways with breathing. Snoring and Sleep Apnea problems that decrease life quality of patients and their relatives and increase increase sleep problems, can be treated. Tongue root operations, functional nose operations, mouth anatomy changing operations are used as surgical methods. With the UPPP method, which is used in laser technology and at the forefront of snoring and sleep apnea surgery, successful results are obtained in tonsils, epiglottis and velum problems.
Radio Frequency Application to Concha (Inferior Turbinate RF)
The problem of growing concha, which is among the factors that cause nasal obstruction and inhibit respiration, is solved by radio frequency applications. In other words, it is possible to reduce the growth of concha in a short time and sensetively, by applying radiofrequency.
Endoskopik Sinüs Cerrahisi (FESS)
Endoscopic sinus surgery is performed to improve the breathing and the quality of life of patients with chronic sinusitis who are not healed by medication. During this operation, the functionality of the drainage pathways in the sinuses is increased; bones and mucous, which are blocking ducts, are cleaned using fiber optic telescopes.
