Snoring is caused by vibrating tissues within the airways of the nose and throat. The vibrations that cause snoring are caused by turbulent airflow through narrowed airways. Snoring is affected by the stage of sleep sleeping position, and the use of medications and alcohol. Snoring, like all other sounds, is caused by vibrations that cause particles in the air to form sound waves. While we are asleep, turbulent airflow can cause the tissues of the palate (roof of the mouth) and throat to vibrate, giving rise to snoring.
Reasons for Snoring
Enlarged Adenoids Or Tonsils
In case of Tonsils or Sinus a surgery for the same could be done and the snorning problem could be relieved. However in other cases of snoring a small day care surgery or 1 Minute Snoring Surgery as called using Radio Frequency (RF) is the best and most advanced treatement for snoring surgery in India.
1 Minute Surgery for Snoring
Radiofrequency palatoplasty is one of the best and most advanced procedure that uses an electrical current to shrink and stiffen the back part of the roof of the mouth (soft palate). When the soft palate and uvula are stiffer, they are less likely to vibrate and you are less likely to snore. Radiofrequency palatoplasty is usually performed in a doctor's OPD and many people return to work and other regular activities in few hours.
Almost 70% of the people would require just one sitting of RF Frequency Ablation which costs USD 40,000. Around 25% of the people would require a second sitting after 3 months and the cost for this sitting would be Rs. 20,000. Around 5% of the patients would require a 3rd sitting after 3 months of the second sitting and this sitting would cost Rs. 20,000.
However if the patients who undergo one sitting, start following a healthy lifestyle in terms of diet and exercise then they would start losing weight and would never require another sitting.
Patient who want to avoid surgery for snoring should quit drinking alcohol and start a strict regimen of raw diet and regular exercise. This would help them in losing almost 5 kg body weight in just 15 days time and by the time they lose 10 kg of body weight, the snoring would have significantly reduced and they can avoid surgery for the same.
A good hospital needs to have qualified doctors with good experience. Most of the hospitals in the vicinity offer services of doctors who either do not have proper qualifications or do not possess requisite experience. We do not claim to be a tertiary care hospital providing services across all the streams of medicine and surgery but whatever service you get at Yashlok Hospital are first class in terms of quality.
We are probably the only hospital which has an inhouse Ultrasound and Colour Doppler facility. The hospital has state of art Digital X-Ray, ECG, Pathology Lab, Dental Centre, Physiotherapy Centre and Inhouse Pharmacy. The operating room at the hospital has the deployment of cutting edge technology which gives us the confidence of doing the most complex of the surgeries with relative ease.
Healthcare is a very different stream from any other service industry. People come to us only when they are in a problem which they are not able to understand. All our team members are thoroughly trained to provide the medical care with highest ethical standards and with compassion and empathy. The entire care programme is designed keeping the centricity of the patient in mind.
