Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPPP)

Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPPP) is a procedure that removes excess tissue in the throat to make the airway wider. This sometimes can allow air to move through the throat more easily when you breathe, reducing the severity of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).

Although this procedure is not performed nearly as frequently as in the past, it is an appropriate procedure for the right candidate. We perform a “modified” version of this procedure with minimal tissue removal for faster and less painful recovery.
