Surgery is a last attempt to reduce excessive soft tissue in severe Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) with significant co-morbidities and when Oral Appliance Therapy (OAT) did not provided significant results.

Types of Surgery
  1. Adenoids and Tonsils – younger patients with excessive tonsillar or adenoid tissues, are candidates for adenectomy and tonsillectomy.

  2. Palatal Implants – Also known as Pillar Procedure. Doctors inject braided strands of polyester filament into the soft palate, which stiffens it and reduces snoring.

  3. UPPP – Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty. Doctors tighten or trim excess tissues from the throat.

  4. LA UPPP – Laser Assisted Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty. Doctors use lasers to reduce excess tissues from the throat and shorten the soft palate and remove the uvula.
