Until now, there have been limited treatment options for the millions of Americans who suffer from snoring and mild sleep apnea. In addition to interrupted sleep and daytime fatigue, sleep disorders can contribute to major health problems such as heart disease, high blood pressure, memory problems and stroke. It can also contribute significantly to the health and sleep patterns of other family members.
The Pillar® Procedure is a minimally-invasive alternative that contributes to effective treatment of mild obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and disruptive snoring.
Less invasive than surgical tissue-removing procedures, it requires a short office visit for Dr. Vetter to perform the Pillar Procedure. Made of material used in medical procedures for many years, Pillar inserts are designed to be invisible, and should not be felt or interfere with swallowing or speech.
FDA-cleared and clinically proven, the Pillar Procedure has achieved results comparable to those of more aggressive, and uncomfortable, surgical procedures. In addition, the complication rate for the Pillar Procedure is extremely low. Most patients report a noticeable reduction in snoring and experience less daytime sleepiness within 8-10 weeks following the procedure.
