What Does The Snoring Center Do?

The Snoring Center specializes in minimally invasive treatments for snoring and sleep apnea.

What Treatment Options Do You Offer?

We offer a variety of minimally invasive treatment options and continually incorporate new options as they become available. Unlike dentists with oral appliances or sleep labs with CPAP, we offer a variety of solutions such as: the Pillar Procedure, Turbinate Reduction, Laser Tonsillectomy, Oral Appliances and Home Sleep Studies.

Is The Snoring Center A Sleep Lab?

No, we specialize in practical solutions for snoring and sleep apnea, not overnight sleep studies or CPAP.

Is The Snoring Center In Network With My Insurance Plan?

No. We are not in network with any insurance plans. But if you have a Flex Spending Account or a Health Savings Account, you can likely pay for our services with “pre-tax dollars”. Our treatment options are surprisingly affordable, and our treatment protocols are designed to be as efficient and streamlined as possible. In fact, for many patients with high deductibles, our treatments often cost less than many “covered services”.

What is snoring?

Snoring is noise caused by vibration of soft tissue in the back of the throat. Snoring is very common and can be the cause of significant relationship problems. Bed partners of snorers lose over an hour of sleep per night. Snoring couples report lower marital satisfaction and decreased sexual intimacy. Even single people suffer from snoring during social outings, business travel and vacations.

What is sleep apnea?

Sleep apnea is a serious medical disease characterized by loud snoring and breathing irregularities. It occurs when the soft tissue in the throat vibrates enough to not only cause loud snoring, but to actually block off (obstruct) the airway. During these periods of obstruction, the oxygen level in the blood can drop to dangerously low levels.

Is sleep apnea dangerous?

Yes! Sleep apnea has been linked to an increased risk of high blood pressure, heart attack and stroke. It is also associated with obesity and diabetes. In addition, because people with sleep apnea are often excessively tired during the day, they have a markedly increased risk of workplace and automobile accidents.

I have sleep apnea – what are my treatment options?

Generally accepted treatment options include: CPAP, UPPP surgery, minimally invasive treatments (Pillar Procedure, Laser Tonsillectomy, Turbinate Reduction) and Oral Appliances.

Can I fly in and fly out on the same day as my procedure?

Yes, many patients do. It is quite convenient to fly in to DFW Airport or Love Field Airport if you are visiting our Dallas or Ft. Worth offices, while Hobby and George Bush Intercontinental airports serve our Houston location. Please find directions to our offices from these airports here.

  • After A Week, I Could Already Feel Big Improvements

    “I’ve always had large tonsils, but recently they became a big problem for me. I had Laser Tonsillectomy to reduce the size of my tonsils, and the results are great. The procedure was not a big deal and over before I knew it. I went to a Mexican restaurant directly after my procedure and ate chips and tacos. And, after a week, I could already feel big improvements.”

  • I Was Way Past The Normal Age For A Tonsillectomy, And I Was Skeptical About The Laser Procedure

    “The Snoring Center has improved my quality of life. After numerous episodes of tonsillitis, I was searching for anything to help. I was way past the normal age for a tonsillectomy, and I was skeptical about the Laser Tonsillectomy procedure. However, Dr. Schwimmer and the entire staff at The Snoring Center were very nice and professional and made the entire process fast and relatively pain free. I experienced very little discomfort during the procedure and very minor pain afterwards. Within a few hours, I was eating normal food. The best part is that since the Laser Tonsillectomy procedure I have not had a single episode of tonsillitis or even a sore throat. Thank you Snoring Center!”

  • I Can Breathe Through My Nose For The First Time In 16 Years

    “My nasal allergies are so bad that it is debilitating. I love outdoor activities, but often I can’t partake or I pay the price. I heard about turbinate reduction at The Snoring Center and that it can help with nasal allergy symptoms. For me it has done much more than “help”, I can breathe through my nose for the first time in 16 years. This really is life changing. Thank you!”

  • The Entire Procedure Took Only About 10 Minutes. But, It Changed My Life

    “I have suffered all of my life from nasal allergies. I meet with clients all day and allergy season is awful. It is embarrassing to continually blow my nose and sniffle during meetings. Not to mention the expense of regular doctor’s visits and daily medication. I was happy to have Turbinate Reduction at The Snoring Center. The entire procedure took only about 10 minutes, but it changed my life. Thank you Snoring Center.”

    - Kelly F.

  • It Truly Was A Life-Changing Experience

    “Turbinate Reduction not only helped my allergies but also my sinus headaches. This changed my life from someone who has had allergies since I was five years old to someone who is allergy-free. I would like to thank Dr. Schwimmer for all he has done for me. It truly was a life-changing experience.”
