Sleep apnea is a condition that repeatedly blocks, reduces or stops the upper airway while sleeping. There are many surgeries to treat sleep apnea. All procedures are performed under general anesthesia. The most common are:
•UPPP (Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty): Surgeons remove parts of the uvula and reduce the edge of the soft palate.
•Hyoid suspension: Surgeons secure the hyoid bone to the thyroid cartilage.
•GGA (Genioglossus Advancement): Surgeons tighten the tongue tendon.
•MMA (Maxillomandibular advancement): Surgeons move the upper and lower jaw of the patient to open the airways.
