Our patient, 41 years old İlhan Paşaoğlu is working as a manager in a private company, married and father of one child. He applied with the complaints of snoring, instant breath cessation during the sleep, tired waking, daytime sleepiness, headache. The sleep test indicates, breathing stopped 135 times per hour and severe snoring and oxygen levels were found to decrease by more than 100 per hour. This was caused by obstructive sleep apneas. First, to the patient, who avoided surgery, was given a CPAP device, but our patient, who could not use the device for 3 months, applied again for surgery. With multi-level robotic sleep surgery, we performed operations on the soft palate, tonsils, tongue root, and larynx. On the 5th day of surgery, we discharged our patient, and the 15th day of surgery we were able to send our patient back home to Antalya. In the sleep test performed at 3 months postoperatively, we have observed that the number of apnea decreased from 135 to 4 and we learned that our patient was fully cured.
