We treat acute or chronic sinusitis after a precise endoscopic examination with various proven drugs. If necessary, we book X-ray examinations in neighbouring X-ray institutions. If an operation is necessary, you will be referred to an experienced surgeon of your choice.
SNORING / SLEEP APNOEA
Do you snore or do you have nightly breathing pauses (obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome)? We can show you the bottlenecks in the nasopharyngeal area on-screen and advise you of possible therapies.
Clarification is often supplemented with a sleep apnoea screening device, with which you can measure the nightly oxygen level in the blood at home.
In many cases, an individually adapted Velumount mouth brace may solve snoring by narrowing the roof of the mouth area.
}} FACE / ORAL CAVITY / THROAT
With swelling or pain in the face or throat pain, apartfrom a detailed clinical examination, if requireed we carry out checks, by means of endoscopy or ultrasound.
We have a great deal of experience in the investigation and treatment of facial paralysis.
With pain, the urge to cough or sensation of a lump in the throat, we can mirror the entire upper respiratory and digestive tracts with the camera and show you the image on the screen.
This system also enables a detailed examination in the event of swallowing difficulties (dysphagia).
Ultrasound is used to examine throat swelling, the large salivary glands and the size and structure of the thyroid gland. If necessary, cells can be removed for further investigation by means of fine-needle aspiration.
With hoarseness, the desire to clear one's throat or speech problems, we can investigate the condition and function of the vocal chords in our practice by means of stroboscopy. After a discussion of the image on the screen, the treatment options will be discussed with you. Thanks to close cooperation with our speech therapist, Monika Achermann, Ph.D., we can offer you voice therapy at the practice on Schmidgasse.
Feel free to contact us.
If necessary, complex cases can be further investigated and dealt with thanks to good collaboration with proven colleagues from other disciplines and with the surrounding tertiary hospitals.
