An exciting new treatment is now available called the Pillar Procedure. This procedure is a safe, effective, one-time treatment for snoring and mild sleep apnea. Clinically proven and FDA approved, the Pillar Procedure is virtually painless, non-invasive and, unlike surgery, this procedure is done right here in our office. In fact, Dallas ENT - Head & Neck Surgery Center was the first practice to perform the Pillar Procedure in the entire DFW Metroplex. So call today to schedule an appointment with one of our specialists to determine if you are a candidate for this procedure.
As board-certified Ear, Nose, and Throat specialists, our physicians are highly trained in the diagnosis and treatment of snoring and sleep apnea.
In addition to poor sleep for both you and your partner, snoring can also lead to major health problems like heart disease, high blood pressure, memory problems, and stroke.
What to Expect
The actual procedure takes approximately 30 minutes during which time local anesthesia is administered followed by the insertion of three implants. Over the course of a few weeks these implants stiffen the palate, thereby reducing the vibrations that are associated with snoring and mild sleep apnea. Most of our patients say that the procedure was quick and painless and they were able to resume normal activities and diet the very same day. The Pillar Procedure boasts a success rate of over 75%, with patients reporting more restful sleep, a boost in energy, and a happier marriage.
