Board Certified Ear, Nose and Throat doctors at The Snoring Center offer a variety of treatment options, allowing for customized treatment based on each patient’s anatomy and circumstances. These treatment options include the Pillar Procedure, Laser Tonsillectomy, Reduction of the Nasal Turbinates and Soft Palate Reduction.

  • The Pillar Procedure involves the placement of woven inserts into the soft palate.  Over time, the body’s natural tissue response to the inserts increases the structural integrity of the soft palate, thereby reducing the vibration that causes snoring.  More than 40,000 people worldwide have been treated with Medtronic’s Pillar Procedure to reduce snoring.
  • The Laser Tonsillectomy procedure reduces the size of enlarged tonsils, which potentially block the airway during sleep.  Laser Tonsillectomy is also ideal for the chronic tonsillitis sufferer, as it shrinks enlarged tonsils that can act as breeding grounds for bacterial infections.
  • Reduction of the Nasal Turbinates is a quick, well-tolerated procedure that applies radiofrequency energy to shrink nasal tissue, benefitting both the snorer and allergy-sufferer.
  • Soft Palate Reduction also uses radiofrequency energy to stiffen the soft palate, decreasing tissue vibration that causes disruptive snoring.

The Snoring Center also offers Home Sleep Studies as a diagnostic tool for obstructive sleep apnea.  These home-based studies are significantly less expensive, more convenient, often preferred by patients because they are done in the comfort of one’s own bed and may allow for a more representative night’s sleep.  The device can be returned the next day for interpretation of the data by our medical staff.
