The doctors at Huntington Ear Nose Throat Head & Neck specialize in treating snoring and sleep disorders with a wide range of treatments including the Pillar® Procedure.
Sleep Apnea is a chronic sleep disorder where your throat’s air passage becomes blocked during sleep and prevents oxygen from entering your lungs. Sleep Apnea can prevent you from getting the restful sleep you need and can have a negative effect on your overall health. Once you are diagnosed, Sleep Apnea can be addressed with a wide range of treatments.
Snoring is the noise created by the vibrations of tissue in your mouth, nose, and back of your throat, preventing you from having a good night’s rest. Snoring can have a detrimental effect on your overall health. Chronic snoring can be a sign of more serious health and medical conditions that need to be addressed and treated.
The Pillar® Procedure is a simple, safe and effective treatment designed to help you stop snoring. In many cases, it also helps people suffering from mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). The Pillar Procedure stiffens the soft palate, which is believed to be a significant contributor for at least 80% of people who can’t stop snoring. Pillar can be performed in about 20 minutes, using only local anesthetic—so you can quickly be on your way to better sleep.
