Surgery For Snoring And Sleep Apnoea is suggested for people who are suffering from the issues of both snoring and sleep apnoea together. Snoring is the loud sound that people make when they are sleeping and sleep apnoea is the issue of irregular breathing when sleeping. The irregular breathing can also lead to missed breaths and this could be potentially dangerous. Both of these issues happen because of some kind of internal obstruction in the nasal passage. An ENT will check the same and then work out the surgery required or relevant treatment for the same. Surgeries include radiofrequency turbinate reduction (RFTR), Upper throat (palate, tonsils, uvula), Lower throat (back of tongue and upper part of voice box), etc.
Once the sleep apnoea causes are determined, the relevant treatment procedure is implemented. The surgical process is usually not very complicated but the patient may require 1-2 days of hospital stay in some cases. The surgical duration can be 30 minutes to an hour based on every individual's unique anatomy and pattern of collapse.
After your Sleep Disorders surgery has been done, you will be able to resume regular sleep patterns and the disturbances caused because of sleep apnoea and snoring won't be there. Also, you will note that with better sleep patterns your overall health is improving too. There are usually no major restrictions after surgery and recovery period is quite fast.
