Snoring and Sleep Surgery
The Department of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery provides comprehensive surgical and dental care for patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) or snoring who have not had successful medical treatment or are interested in exploring other treatment options. We understand the frustration and health risks that come with having a sleep problem such as sleep apnea or snoring. We will work closely with you to understand and treat your particular sleep issue, so you can get the rest you need.
Our multidisciplinary team of surgical providers collaborates to develop individualized treatment plans for patients with sleep apnea or snoring problems, which may include:
- A comprehensive history and physical examination including an airway evaluation
- Nasal Surgeries: septoplasty, nasal turbinate reduction, nasal valve reconstruction, or nasal tumor or polyp removal
- Base of Tongue Surgeries: lingual tonsillectomy, partial midline glossectomy, radiofrequency to the base of tongue, genioglossal advancement, hyoid myotomy and suspension, tongue suspension suture
- Other Surgical Procedures: maxillomandibular advancement, tracheostomy, limited uvulopalatopharygoplasty, custom oral appliances, hypoglossal nerve stimulator implantation
Through our ongoing clinical research, our team continually collaborates to refine and improve surgical treatment of OSA.
