Sleep apnea is curable
You read correctly: sleep apnea can be stopped. A specially developed jaw surgery not only provides relief, but also brings about a complete cure. If you too have had enough of the annoying CPAP mask or can't even tolerate it in the first place, find out from us about the only causal therapy method for obstructive sleep apnea.
Wir sind eine der führenden Kliniken, die sich auf die Ursachenbeseitigung der obstruktiven Schlafapnoe spezialisiert hat. Seit nunmehr 15 Jahren haben wir uns der frühen Erkennung und Heilbehandlung verschrieben.
The many positive reports from our patients confirm this: The procedure significantly improves the quality of life. Not only will you sleep through the night relaxed and without breathing pauses, but you will also stop snoring. The treatment has many advantages.
The causal therapy - the only successful curative treatment:
- No breathing pauses during sleep
- No repeated waking during the night
- No stays in the sleep laboratory
- No more sleeping with CPAP machine
What is sleep apnea?
Sleep apnea is a sleep-related breathing disorder in which breathing stops recurrently during sleep. These interruptions usually last between ten seconds and two minutes and occur more than five times per hour. As a result, the oxygen content of the blood decreases, while the carbon dioxide content increases. This triggers an alarm reaction in the body. To avoid a further drop in oxygen, the body makes wake-up attempts.
Thus, sufferers are regularly disturbed by the breathing pauses and the alarm reactions they cause during sleep. The night's rest no longer serves its purpose and cannot provide the body with the rest it needs. The consequences are permanent fatigue, microsleep, difficulty concentrating, mild mood swings up to severe depression and more. Untreated sleep apnea can quickly become life-threatening and trigger high blood pressure, strokes or heart attacks.
What causes the symptoms of sleep apnea?
The brief cessations of breathing, also known as apneas in technical terminology, lead to repeated awakening reactions in the body. Due to the apneas, the oxygen content decreases while the carbon dioxide content of the blood increases. This triggers an alarm response from the body to prevent a further drop in oxygen levels. Thus, sufferers are regularly disturbed in their sleep by the lack of oxygen and the wake-up reactions it causes. Nighttime sleep thus hardly fulfills its function of providing the body with rest.
Breathing stops at least 10 times per hour for more than 10 seconds in OSAS. A characteristic feature of sleep apnea is that sufferers usually do not wake up consciously. Only the pulse rate is increased, along with other bodily functions. This makes it particularly difficult for sufferers to identify sleep apnea as the cause of their pronounced daytime sleepiness. Many people thus suffer from the symptoms over a long period of time, although a lack of restful sleep can significantly reduce the quality of life of those affected. Thus, not only daytime sleepiness and microsleep, but also depression and cardiovascular disease can result from sleep apnea. The sleep apnea syndrome is treatable.

What are the different forms of sleep apnea?
There are three forms of sleep apnea. The most common form is the so-called obstructive sleep apnea syndrome. In Germany alone, this affects one to two percent of women and two to four percent of men in middle age.
The three different types of the disease:
Our causal therapy
- 3D planning for surgical elimination of obstructive sleep apnea.
- 3D Planung des ästhetischen Ergebnisses bei Korrekturen von Fehlstellungen der Kiefer und bei Schlafapnoe Operationen
- Correction of airway narrowing
- Analysis and correction of postural deformities in patients with obstructive sleep apnea.
- Analysis of elimination of turbulence in the posterior airway space
- minimally invasive bone surgery using piezosurgery
- Bone augmentation in the maxillofacial region
Dr. Robert Frey has made it his mission to identify the causes of obstructive sleep apnea and to eliminate them permanently by surgery. Dr. Frey has been involved in the surgical treatment of OSAS for more than 15 years. His scientific research areas are interdisciplinary throughout.
