What’s the Best Surgery for Snoring?
In my Los Angeles sinus surgery practice, I often hear from patients who suffer from symptoms without knowing their cause. Many of the ailments we treat in the ENT profession fall within this maddening description: headaches, nosebleeds, and throat pain, to name just a few.
But one of the most common complaints is snoring, a symptom which, when severe, can lead to interrupted sleep, loss of rest, and a host of secondary symptoms such as fatigue, lack of focus and depression. No wonder so many people come to my offices seeking a permanent cure for the roar.
Surgical Cures for Snoring
So how can you cure chronic snoring? This depends on the underlying cause, of course. If obesity is the issue, losing weight could resolve the problem. If enlarged tonsils are to blame, you can get these reduced or removed surgically. One of the most common causes of snoring is a deviated septum. The solution for this issue is known as a septoplasty, or septal surgery.
A septoplasty is a minor surgery to align the wall that runs down your nose between your nostrils, thus opening an airway where none existed before. Improved breathing lets you change positions at night without distress, and respirate without difficulty at work or play. Septoplasty is a revelation for many of my patients: an instant source of relief that only takes about an hour to perform.
