Snoring and Sleep Apnea

Many people these days suffer from Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome OSAS. Sleep Apnea is a life-threatening condition that is characterised by loud snoring and the cessation of breathing while a person is sleeping. The patient will often not be aware of these characteristics. Only a few people are aware that a long-term cure can be brought about by the operative technique known as rotation advancement.

Rotation Advancement Surgery cures Sleep Apnea for ever

If sleep apnoea is suspected, x-ray images are used to carry out an analysis of the respiratory passages. The exact diameter of the upper respiratory passages are measured and defined. Together with the recordings from the sleep laboratory, the necessary treatment stages are started.

Catching up on natural growth

Through the forward advancement of the jaw, the lack of forward growth is “caught up on” and therefore a vitally important widening of the upper respiratory passages by 2 or 3 times is sustainably achieved. Many sleep apnoea patients wore braces as children, but only the tooth position and not the rear position of the jaw was taken into consideration.

The highly sensitive soft tissues remain untouched

The sensitive, supple and continually moving soft tissue parts such as the soft palate, pharyngeal uvula and the base of the tongue are spared when the rotation advancement method is used. Procedures which affect these functional soft tissues are particularly painful and Professor Sailer therefore does not carry out these procedures. Every year Professor Sailer performs numerous operations to correct the damage caused by these procedures, damage which leads to speech difficulties, a nasal voice or problems such as fluid leaking through the nose when swallowing.

The procedure is not dangerous and leaves no visible scars

The procedure is carried out on the jaw bone. Bones are not sensitive to pain, therefore the operation is painless. Surgery is carried out through the oral cavity, leaving no outwardly visible scars.

Patient reports before and after Sleep Apnea surgery

Authentic reports with name and photos of patients

Sleep apnea cured forever: Many enthusiastic former patients who have been cured hand over their contact details to pre-operative patients for sharing their experiences. Below you will find some current excerpts. In order to illustrate the authenticity and integrity of the letters and interviews we have been allowed to publish some of them with their full names.

January 2017, Mr. Ley from Germany

4 month after sleep apnea surgery

It all began in 2012 when I woke up tired, although I had slept more than adequately. For months, it was hard for me to work efficiently during the day and find any motivation for sports and other activities.

My doctor checked me thoroughly and referred me to a sleep laboratory. It was established that I was suffering a huge amount of breathing interruptions (apnoea). As a result, a breathing mask was prescribed to wear at night.

December 2016, daughter writes about the surgery of her father

Ms. Wafae El Otmani, Morocco.

My family and I have spent one month in Zurich for my father’s surgery of sleep apnea; a maxillomandibular advancement surgery performed by Prof. Sailer and his brilliant team.

Seven months before surgery, my father went for a polysomnography because of a constant asthenia and snoring during sleep, he was diagnosed with severe sleep apnea (Index of 45/hour).

1 year after Sleep Apnea surgery, Oktober 2016

Mr. Ben J.Frommherz, Germany :

At the end of 2015 I underwent a Rotation Advancement Operation, because I could hardly sleep anymore due to shortness of breath and nothing provided me with any relief. The cause was that my jawbone had not grown to its full extent, which led to a bottleneck effect in my throat. The operation, which Prof. Sailer suggested, planned to rectify the bottleneck without altering the position of my jaw line or disfiguring my face.
