Sleep

Sleep is not just a matter of closed eyes and "switching-off" for the night. It's actually an active process that involves increased metabolic and brain activity. There are two main phases of sleep. dream sleep (known as Rapid Eye Movement, or REM), and non-dream (non-REM) sleep,

Dream sleep is essential for humans. The brain is highly active at this time even though the body is not moving.

However, people with sleep disorders such as Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA - one of the most common sleep disorders) will experience disrupted sleep and overall poor sleep quality. People who have OSA or other sleep disorders will suffer from the symptoms of sleep deprivation: poor memory, poor concentration, high blood pressure, and irritability. They are also at risk of more long-term health consequences, such as heart disease, stroke, and sudden death in sleep.

If unsure, always check with a doctor to investigate the cause behind poor sleep quality and sleep deprivation.

I had very loud snoring for a few years. Affected my wife's sleep. I would wake up gasping for air at night. I was tired and sleepy daily. Consulted Dr Kenny Pang who diagnosed me with OSA. He did surgery on my sinus and throat. I breathe better now. I don't snore or gasp in my sleep anymore. I feel more energy and can concentrate better.
Appreciate Dr Kenny's surgery!!

I saw Dr Kenny Pang for my nose blocked and sensitive nose. I could not breathe through my nose and was a frequent mouth breather. Dr Kenny did sinus surgery, reduced my sinus turbinates and straightened my nose wall. I breathe perfect now. My nose is less sensitive and I feel better with good quality sleep. Thank you Dr Kenny Pang. Thank you for the very professional care!!

Consulted Dr Kenny for bad snoring and sinus issues. The snoring was so loud that it affected my family's sleep. I also had borderline hypertension. Dr Kenny operated on my nose and my throat.

I lost about 9kg and don't snore any more and more refreshed in the mornings.

My sleep has improved a lot.

My blood pressure is better too

Thank you Dr Pang

Saw Dr Kenny for bad nose blocked, snoring and constant tiredness. I sneeze a lot and have runny nose since young.

Dr Kenny shrunk my sinus turbinates and reshaped my palate. I don't snore anymore and feel refreshed in the day.

Dr Kenny is a kind and caring doctor.

I had very loud snoring for over 5years. I would choke and gasp at night while sleeping. I would sit up at night just to breathe. Felt very tired and sleepy throughout the day. Was irritable and moody as well. My high blood pressure was 150/90 plus.

I consulted Dr Kenny Pang and he did surgery on my sinus and throat. I feel so much better now, I have more energy and feel more refreshed. I don't snore anymore and my blood pressure has come down to 130/70.

I also sent my two children to see Dr Kenny.

Thank you Dr Kenny for your great care.

I brought my son to see Dr. Pang in 2015 for his persistent sinus and blocked nose. During the checkup, Dr. Pang found out that he also have enlarged tonsils. He advised us to go for surgery and my son can finally breathe properly and have qood quality of sleep after the surgery.

I myself also suffer from sinus and persistent blocked nose and it gets worse at night when I sleep in air-conditioned room where both side of my nose will be blocked and I can only breathe through my mouth and it gets very dry. After my son's successful surgery, I went ahead to get the surgery by Dr. Pang.

It has been more than 3 years since the surgery and it has definitely improved our life as we can now breathe and sleep better.

I highly recommend Dr. Pang for kids and adults who suffers from sinus problems.

My husband was a loud snorer, and his snoring used to keep me awake at night. We finally decided that he should see a sleep specialist and we consulted Dr Pang, who diagnosed his sleep apnoea. After my husband's treatment, we both sleep better now. Dr Pang is a skilled and reassuring doctor -- we are grateful for his help.

I had loud snoring and was gasping for air at night, I could not breathe during sleep. I would wake up tired and unrefreshed. I also had constant left sided nose blocked and sinus sensitivity.

I consulted Dr Kenny Pang in 2016. The sleep test showed that I had obstructive sleep apnea. I was not keen on the CPAP.

Dr Pang reduced my sinus turbinates, straightened my nose septum, and trimmed my palate and tonsils. It has been 2 years, I sleep so much better; I do not snore anymore and breathe perfectly through my nose. I also just brought my daughter to see Dr Kenny. He also operated on her sinus, she breathes so well now, sleeps peacefully, and because she can smell her food better now, her appetite has improved.

Thank you Dr Kenny Pang

Three years ago, I consulted Dr Kenny Pang in 2015 for loud snoring issues, affecting my wife's sleep and daytime tiredness. I had recurrent sinus problems as well. I would wake up still tired and feeling not refreshed.


Dr Pang operated on my sinus and throat. I breathe so much better now and don't snore anymore!!!


Before surgery I stopped breathing like 55 times per hour on the sleep test, after surgery it's only 11 times!!!


Dr Kenny has been very professional. It's been 3 years now. I'm still feeling very good. Thank you Dr Kenny Pang

I visited Dr. Kenny a while back for a consultation and surgery. The process of making an appointment and surgery was fast and efficient with minimal waiting time, and facilities were good and clean. This is in stark contrast to the long waiting times I face at other clinics. After the surgery, I started sleeping much better, with less snoring and much more vivid dreams, a testament to the better quality sleep I enjoy. A great experience overall.
