Surgery

A surgical procedure with a big name with the potential for even bigger results.

Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPPP) is a surgical procedure performed by an ENT surgeon that removes excess tissue a patient’s airway to allow more air to pass. The severity of OSA may be decreased or entirely eliminated. In some cases the patient’s jaw may also be moved forward to further treat OSA. Results vary greatly with patients so it best to speak to your physician more about this surgery.
