Here is a troubling statistic to consider: 23 percent of couples in America sleep apart. What is the major cause of this separation? Snoring. However, even when a couple can sleep together in spite of snoring, the non-snoring sleeping partner loses an average of an hour of sleep each evening. This lack of sleep can lead to irritability and stress in the relationship. At The Snoring Center’s Manhattan offices, our board-certified physicians tackle snoring problems head-on. We utilize a variety of office-based procedures. In fact, in most cases, our doctors can diagnose the cause of snoring, consult with the patient to decide a course of action and perform a simple corrective procedure…all within an hour.
The Snoring Center utilizes the latest technology and techniques to address problem snoring on a long term basis. As much as we focus on curing problem snoring immediately, we focus on curing their problems permanently. Since every patient’s physical structure is different, it is important to utilize the correct procedure to best address the cause of the patient’s snoring. There is no one magical procedure that will cure everyone. That is why we utilize a host of proven, minimally-invasive treatment options. These include:
- Pillar Procedure
- Coblation Turbinate Reduction
- Palate Coblation
- Laser Tonsillectomy
- Home Sleep Study
- Oral Appliances
- Snoring Surgery
At The Snoring Center’s Manhattan office, you will find our staff takes a rational, reasonable and prudent approach to helping our patients (and their sleeping partners) get a better night’s sleep. If tranquil nights have been missing from your life, schedule an appointment with The Snoring Center’s Manhattan office. You deserve a decent rest.
