Dr. Peter On Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea is a potentially serious sleep disorder in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts. If you snore loudly and feel tired even after a full night’s sleep, you might have sleep apnea.

This occurs when the muscles in the back of your throat relax. When the muscles relax, your airway narrows or closes as you breathe in. You can’t get enough air, which can lower the oxygen level in your blood. Your brain senses your inability to breathe and briefly rouses you from sleep so that you can reopen your airway. This awakening is usually so brief that you don’t remember it.

You might snort, choke or gasp. This pattern can repeat itself five to 30 times or more each hour, all night, impairing your ability to reach the deep, restful phases of sleep.

For mild cases of sleep apnea, Dr. Peter, Best ENT Doctor in Dubai recommends only conventional treatments with lifestyle changes, such as losing weight or quitting smoking. If these measures don’t improve your signs and symptoms or if your apnea is moderate to severe, Dr. Peter, Best ENT Surgeon in Dubai  can help you with several other treatments including:

CPAP Devices

Hypoglossal Nerve
Stimulation

His Experties

Sinus Surgery

Sinus surgery refers to a range of surgical procedures aimed at addressing issues within the sinuses. This can include the removal of nasal polyps, correction of structural abnormalities, and clearing of blockages that lead to chronic sinusitis.

Septoplasty

It is a specialised surgery to correct a deviated septum, the soft cartilage and bone that separates the two nostrils. A deviated septum can cause breathing difficulties, snoring, and chronic nasal congestion. During septoplasty, the surgeon reshapes or repositions the septum to improve airflow and alleviate associated issues, often resulting in improved nasal breathing.

Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery (FESS)

It involves a minimally invasive surgical procedure used to treat chronic sinus conditions. An endoscope, which is a thin tube with a camera, is inserted to visualize and access the sinuses through the nostrils. FESS aims to improve sinus drainage and alleviate symptoms like congestion, facial pain, and headaches by removing obstructions, such as polyps or inflamed tissue, within the sinus passages.

Palatopharyngoplasty

Palatopharyngoplasty, also known as uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPPP), is a surgical procedure primarily used to treat obstructive sleep apnea. It involves removing excess tissue from the throat, including the uvula and parts of the soft palate, to widen the airway and reduce obstruction during sleep. This procedure helps improve breathing and reduce the frequency of sleep apnea episodes.

Turbinate Surgery

Turbinate surgery is performed to address issues related to the nasal turbinates, which are structures inside the nasal passages that help filter and humidify the air we breathe. When turbinates become swollen or enlarged, they can lead to chronic nasal congestion and breathing difficulties. Turbinate surgery aims to reduce the size of the turbinates through various techniques, improving airflow and alleviating congestion.

Sinus surgery becomes necessary when complications arising from sinusitis arise. If inflammation persists for over three months, the condition is termed chronic sinusitis.

Under the expertise of Dr. Peter Baptista, the renowned ENT surgeon in Dubai, these symptoms can be effectively managed through specialised surgical procedures.

Dr Peter Baptista, the best ENT surgeon in Dubai, offers endoscopic sinus surgery to address various nasal conditions, such as chronic sinusitis, nasal polyps, recurrent sinus infections, nasal and sinus tumors, sinus mucoceles, nasal obstruction, allergic fungal sinusitis, and odontogenic sinusitis.

"I cannot thank Dr. Peter enough for his great efforts... He was able to perform an operation that doctors described as impossible... My child suffered from a blockage in the pharynx due to a medical error. Many of them agreed on the difficulty of performing it... But Dr. Peter achieved the impossible... Words of praise do not fulfill your right.. Thank you".

It was an incredibly amazing experience I’ve ever had. Dr Peter is the best ENT doctor in Dubai in my opinion. He indeed cured my sleeping problem that bothered me for years. Dr Peter was nice and professional during the whole procedure. I had my tonsils cut off and it was sooooo painful in the first several days. Dr Peter even accurately estimated the day that I would be better. Trust me, if you have any problems in ENT, just meet Dr Peter and he will give you a proper plan to solve them.

Dr. Peter is a genuinely caring person with a calming approach that puts everything at ease. He takes enough time to explain the situation, solutions, and plan. He follows up to make sure the surgery has brought about the intended results. I experienced all he was looking after me when I had my tonsillectomy.

My daughter had her tonsils removed at the age of five. She was taken care of so well and the recovery went smoothly. Her breathing was very laboured before the procedure and now it is as if she can breathe normally again. 100% recommend it if you are in doubt whether it is the right decision or not. Dr. Baptista is amazing

My son has issue of nasal polyp and he was breathing through mouth most of the time. We have visited a couple of doctors in Dubai but no one could even diagnose this issue. Than we found doctor Peter through facebook recommendation. He diagnosed the issue and explained us the treatment plan that was surgical removal of polyp. He was very concerned and cooperative during all the procedure. My son was fine right after the surgery was completed. Highly recommend Dr. Peter and Al Zahra hospital.

His professionalism and will to go the extra mile in order to help his patients is incredible. With his help, my life has changed forever!
