Apnea comes from a Greek word that stands for “want of breath.” An estimated 18-20 million Americans suffer from sleep apnea. Cooper’s Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery team plays an important role in the management of patients with sleep apnea by providing surgical treatments, often when medical treatment alone cannot be curative. These include:

  • Tonsillectomy with or without adenoidectomy
  • Nasal surgery (septoplasty, turbinate reduction surgery)
  • Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPPP)
  • Tongue-base reduction surgery
  • Hyoid advancement
