Patient Stories

A couple of years ago, I came in because I was snoring and I wasn't sleeping very well. I had a sleep study done, and the results were that I had a mild case of sleep apnea. Initially, I had my septum straightened and my tubinates deflated. That didn't help, and so I was placed on a CPAP machine. It was difficult to sleep in. So, I came back to see Dr. Anand. He then had my tonsils removed and my uvula cut back.
I'm no longer snoring, and I'm no longer using the CPAP machine. It's wonderful!

I am 68 years old, and since birth I have had to put up with a deviated septum that blocked my left nostril 99.9%. A couple of years ago I tested positive for Sleep Apnea and tried to use the CPAP machine without success. I just couldn't breathe with my mouth strapped shut and only using one nostril to breathe was impossible.
