To treat snoring, your ENT at the Los Angeles Center for Ear, Nose, Throat and Allergy may recommend the following options:
If you snore or have other symptoms of sleep apnea, see if you should talk with your doctor about surgery to treat it.
If the cause of your snoring or blocked airways is due to a crooked or deformed nasal septum, Septoplasty can repair the septum. During the surgery, any blockages, including bone or cartilage, are repositioned or removed.
A UPPP surgery can treat severe snoring as well as obstructive sleep apnea. During the procedure, your otolaryngologist can remove part of the uvula, sides of the throat, or tonsils and adenoids. This will open your upper airways to help treat your snoring or sleep apea.
