In our department, the studies carried out with the support of modern technological equipment are carried out at the highest level in terms of medical, ethical and academic terms. Our ENT team has over a hundred scientific works published in national/international journals, especially in the most prestigious journals in the world. Emergency, outpatient and inpatient treatment of patients admitted to the Department of ENT and head and Neck Surgery of our hospital is carried out.

The main subgroups in the working order of the department are:

Center For Sleep Disorders
In the diagnosis and treatment of snoring and sleep apnea (sleep apnea disease), we use all the possibilities of modern medicine. Sleep tests (polysomnographic examination) are performed for our patients in the Sleep Laboratory, which primarily works within the Department of Neurological Diseases. Then, after combining the acquired information with the examination, their treatment is planned. In recent years, “radiofrequency surgery”, which is used all over the world in the treatment of this group of patients, is also successfully applied in our hospital. Diagnosis and treatment of many diseases that significantly disrupt the quality of life and cause patients quite a lot of distress, accompanied by nasal breathing disorders, is carried out successfully and with a great accumulation of experience.

Our hospital has the opportunity to perform operations using endoscopic and microscopic methods.

Treatment of nasal and nasal diseases

* Aesthetic Nose Operations

Rhinoplasty operations are performed by physicians who are among the numbered names of our country under the chairmanship of the most famous professor of Turkey in this branch. The applications are in international success standards. Diagnosis and treatment of many diseases that significantly disrupt the quality of life and cause patients quite a lot of distress, accompanied by nasal breathing disorders, is carried out successfully and with a great accumulation of experience.

Our hospital has the opportunity to perform operations using endoscopic and microscopic methods. Seen in childhood, difficulty breathing, snoring, frequent recurrent infections, hearing disorders, allergies treatment in our hospital are carried out in coordination with the Departments of Pediatric Allergy and.

Treatment Of Childhood Otolaryngology Diseases
Seen in childhood, difficulty breathing, snoring, frequent recurrent infections, hearing disorders, allergies treatment in our hospital are carried out in coordination with the Departments of Pediatric Allergy and. In the treatment of these diseases, which have experienced difficulties in diagnosis and treatment for many years, significant improvements have been made in recent years. In the light of all the developments that have occurred in terms of both rehabilitation and surgical treatment, the treatment of patients who have been admitted with this complaint is planned.

Center for dizziness and balance diseases
In the treatment of these diseases, which have experienced difficulties in diagnosis and treatment for many years, significant improvements have been made in recent years. In the light of all the developments that have occurred in terms of both rehabilitation and surgical treatment, the treatment of patients who have been admitted with this complaint is planned.

Diagnosis and treatment of Hearing Disorders and ear diseases in children and adults
With the support of the modern audiology department in our hospital, treatment and rehabilitation of patients with diagnosed hearing disorders is planned.

In addition to the installation of a ‘cochlear Implant’ (Bionic Ear), which is an important development in our field in recent years, repair of eardrum holes (Tympanoplasty), prosthetic applications (Stapesis surgery, Ossiculo-plasti) and all other ear surgeries are performed instead of ear bones. At the stage of diagnosis and treatment of this group of patients, which is of vital importance, a team specializing in this issue must work meticulously. Treatment options that require a high level of knowledge have been successfully applied to many of our patients to date.

In order to minimize the problems that develop after their treatment and to eliminate the negatives that may cause them to move away from social life, all the knowledge and technological support are available in our hospital.

Snore
Being told in your face by your partner, friends that you are snoring in your sleep, or being afraid of falling asleep and being embarrassed in a community if you know that you are snoring, is very disturbing for everyone who is experiencing this distress.

So do we know enough about snoring ? Why do we snore? Can snoring be a condition that negatively affects our health or a symptom of our diseases?

First, it should be said that 35% of men over the age of 35 snore intermittently or depending on the position of hospitalization. After a busy day, after drinking alcohol, snoring while lying on your back is usually innocent snoring. Especially when snoring in the conditions mentioned above, if there is no breathing,snoring is a problem for those who lie next to it (therefore, those who have difficulty sleeping) rather than snoring. In these cases, treatment is not for snoring, but at the decision of bed partners or roommates and for their sleep health.

But almost every day, snoring, accompanied by high severity and sleep interruptions, is an important health problem that needs to be treated, both because it reduces the patient’s life expectancy and poses a risk of serious diseases with it. It is known that those who are breathless and over 60 years of age when snoring at night are life-threatening and prone to many heart and respiratory diseases. It should be noted that death in bed can be a condition that increases the risk of uncontrollable high blood pressure, heart infarction.

In addition, people who snore also have many complaints that disrupt the quality of life, such as the inability to wake up in the morning, falling asleep all day, excessive desire to sleep in traffic jams, in front of the TV or after lunch. It is known that many of the fatal road accidents are caused by people who are breathless and snore in their sleep due to a loss of sleep and concentration.

What should we do? First of all, getting rid of our weight above our ideal weight would be a good start. Reducing alcohol intake before sleep at night, going to bed with hunger for at least 4 hours and not using tranquilizers without sleep can prevent many simple snoring. Especially if we can’t breathe through our nose during sleep at night and therefore have to sleep with the mouth open, snoring will be inevitable. Having our nose open and mouth closed is the golden rule for a healthy sleep

Although these simple measures are taken, snoring and sleep cessation continue to be treated as absolute. In order to understand the severity of the disease and determine which treatment method to use, we need to apply to a center where a night of hospitalization and a “sleep test” can be performed, where your sleep will be evaluated. IstHealth Hospital has all the technological equipment and experience necessary for the treatment of this disease. The main principle of surgical treatment is to provide tension of the small tongue and soft palate, which block the respiratory tract during sleep at night. Currently, the most valid technique for ensuring tension in these tissues in the mouth is “radiofreakance” surgery, the results of which are the best.
