Snoring and Obstructive Sleep Apnea
Sleep is a necessity, and chances are you’re not getting enough if you or your partner snores. Loss of sleep can contribute to weight gain, depression, and lower productivity. Snoring can also be a sign of obstructive sleep apnea which is a serious medical condition that can result in high blood pressure, heart disease, or stroke. The Pillar procedure is a safe and effective treatment for the soft palate designed to help you stop snoring. It reduces vibrations of the soft palate, allowing you to enjoy a better night’s sleep. The Pillar procedure can be performed quickly because it involves no surgical removal of tissue, so it’s relatively painless. Thousands of patients have experienced a significant reduction in snoring and mild to moderate sleep apnea. Contact us for a consultation with one of our ENT physicians to stop snoring and sleep better.
Tonsillectomy and Adenoidectomy Coblation
Our tonsils and adenoid are located in the throat and help trap bacteria and viruses as we breathe. For some, chronic infections and other conditions result in the need for surgical removal. Unlike traditional surgical knife or heat type procedures, Coblation removes the tonsils and adenoid with little harm to the surrounding healthy tissue. The Coblation process is done under anesthesia and most patients can go home the same day. Coblation has been used in more than 6 million procedures by surgeons in ear, nose, and throat and other medical specialties.
Conditions of the Head and Neck
The head and neck include important nerves that control taste, smell, hearing, balance, and the face. This region has some of the most complex anatomy in the body. Our physicians specialize in this area. Feel confident in trusting your care to us.
