Treatments by Professor Kamami

Professor Yves Kamami ENT Surgeon

Professor Yves Kamami ENT (Ear, Nose and Throat) Surgeon who operates at the Fitzwilliam Private Clinic is a world leading authority in his field with over twenty years experience in a variety of ENT related procedures.

He is also the person who invented the Laser Assisted Uvulopalatoplasty (LAUP) – a simple laser procedure to stop snoring, which he successfully carries out in Dublin, London and Paris.

Professor Kamami  has done over 400 procedures in Ireland alone, published books and has written several publications on the LAUP procedure as well as lecturing and holding seminars throughout France on ENT related operations.


Reducing noisy vibration – Laser Assisted Uvuloplatoplasty (LAUP) is a simple procedure performed under localanaesthetic. It involves freeing the airways and increasing oxygen supply by shrinking the uvula and remodeling the excess vibrating soft tissue. By preventing snoring, LAUP can lift mood, increase energy levels, improve memory and recharge the libido.


Each of these treatments takes around 15 minutes to perform and all are carried out under local anaesthetic so you will not experience any pain during treatment.  

What people say about the treatment

The answers you’ve been looking for

These are some of the questions we are most often asked. Hopefully, yours are answered here but, if they are not, you can always contact us and we will be happy to help.

Will I be able to swallow properly afterwards?

Yes. We will have you drinking water before you leave the clinic.

Will my friends know that I have had the procedure done?

No. Not unless you tell them, or they notice you have not kept them awake all night.

Can I book a consultation over the phone?

Of course! Simply call (01) 662 9908 to arrange a consultation.

Will the surgeon explain the exact details and potential success of my procedure?

Yes. This is important. The surgeon will see you, assess you, and then discuss his findings with you. The procedure will then take place, and will be performed by the consultant surgeon.

Who do I contact afterwards if I have any questions?

You will be given written relevant contact details before you are discharged and we’re always here to answer any questions you might have.

Does it cost any money to have an assessment?

Yes. The initial assessment will cost €100. However, many of our patients have had the cause of their snoring identified and treated at the consultation – without the need for any further procedures. Simply call 01 662 9908 and book your consultation.

Will I feel under any pressure to have surgery done?

Absolutely not. We are here to advise you about your problem and your options. We will explain all aspects of the procedures and then the decision is down to you.

Can I bring my partner along with me?

Yes. We prefer you to bring your partner along. It will help with the assessment and it is nice for you to have some support. If you would prefer to come alone, then that’s fine too.

How soon can I have the surgery done?

Naturally, it depends on lots of things, but the rule of thumb is two to three weeks from consultation. This is sometimes changeable and we will always do our best to fit in with your diary and timetable where possible.
