About me

I graduated in 2004 at the Faculty of Medicine, University of Pécs with summa cum laude results and right after that I started my career at one of the most respected clinic in Hungary, at the Department of Otorhinolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery University of Pécs. In 2009 I passed the professional exam of otorhinolaryngology. During the period of nearly 10 years clinical work I have learned profession, experience and vocation from my reputed professors (professor Imre Gerlinger MD, professor József Pytel MD, professor Miklós Bauer MD), leaders and colleagues who have defined my thinking forever. I moved to Budapest in 2011 for family reasons and I have continued my work as a consultant at the National Health Center of Human Defence Forces. In 2019 I took the PhD degree. My research field has been the role of TRP channels and sensory neuropeptides in chronic rhinosinusitis. Currently I attend my second professional training level that is clinical immunology and allergology. During participation in several domestic and international congresses and trainings I have learned the basics and the new approaches of the examination and treatment of snoring and sleep apnea.  My perfectionism has helped me to reach the highest standards in my work – medicine, career advancement, academic life, education, and to provide the best treatment for my patients. I see adults and children and practice the full spectrum of Ear Nose and Throat, while also providing subspecialist care for snoring/sleep apnea and nose, sinuses.

While you sleep, the muscles of your throat relax, your tongue falls backward, and your throat becomes narrow. The intake of large amount of alcoholic drinks or food before sleep can increase the emergence of snoring.  As you breathe, the walls of the throat begin to vibrate – generally when you breathe in, but also, to a lesser extent, when you breathe out. These vibrations lead to the characteristic sound of snoring. Sometimes the walls of the throat collapse completely so that it is completely occluded, creating a condition called apnea (cessation of breathing). Apnea is followed by a characteristic noise that is called snort and the sound effect of snoring changes irregular and atypical. The interruption of sleep can lead to excessive daytime sleepiness, memory problems and disturbance of concentration, moreover hypertension or cardiac disorders. Sleep apnea is a serious condition which requires medical attention.

There are several factors which facilitate snoring. First, the normal aging process leads to the relaxation of the throat muscles, thus resulting in snoring. Anatomical abnormalities of the nose and throat, such as enlarged tonsils or adenoids, nasal polyps, or deviated nasal septum cause exaggerated narrowing of the throat during sleep and thus lead to snoring. Functional abnormalities (e.g. inflammation of the nose and/or throat as may occur during respiratory infection or during allergy season) will result in snoring. At some people, sleep position, such as sleeping on your back, may lead to snoring. Alcohol is a potent muscle relaxant and its ingestion in the evening will cause snoring. Muscle relaxants taken in the evening may lead to or worsen snoring in some individuals. One of the most important risk factors is obesity, and in particular having a lot of fatty tissue around the neck.

Treatment of snoring

The secret of the successful treatment is the profound examination by a somnologist and an otorhinolaryngologist.  Sleep test such as polygraphy or polysomnography is mandatory and it shall be followed by physical examination and a special topodiagnostic method: the drug induced sleep endoscopy, that provides unique information about the patterns of the upper airway collapse during snoring. Based on these findings, individual therapy – surgery, oral device or CPAP- can be proposed.


Otorhinolaryngology- ENT: EarNoseThroat

When you should see an ENT doctor?

Blocked nose, sore throat, hoarseness, upper airway infections? Why is it like this?

Filtrating the air from dusty particles and protecting the lower airway from pathogens are the most important functions of the upper airway. If the immune-barrier– especially the nasal mucosa- does not function perfectly recurrent infections, allergy and chronic inflammatory conditions can develop.  It is determined by our individual constitution. Dysfunction of the upper airway can result in snoring and what is more in sleep apnea in special cases.

  • complete otorhinolaryngological examination (endoscopy, fiberoscopy included)
  • examination and treatment of snoring and sleep apnea
  • examination and treatment of chronic rhinosinusitis, nasal polyps and allergy
  • treatment of blocked nose, nose-drop dependence
  • radiofrequency treatment of recurrent epistaxis
  • otoneurology, tinnitus treatment, chronic ear diseases, Eustachian-tube dysfunction/ballon dilation procedure
  • screening of head-and neck cancer, hoarseness
  • radiofrequency excision of benign skin lesions
  • Surgery: radiofrequency and coblation uvulopalatoplasty, functional pharyngoplasty, coblation tonsillectomy,functional endoscopic sinus surgery, septoplasty, turbinoplasty



Specific treatment/ surgery

I am one of the Hungarian ENT specialists who have been officially trained for coblation technology. Coblation tonsillectomy/tonsillotomy and palatal surgery are the ultimate modern methods with less pain and good results. Radiofrequency treatment is successfully used in inferior turbinates and snoring or sleep surgery, besides I routinely use LASER in selected cases, too.
