Pillar® Procedure

Chronic snoring affects one in four Americans. While it may seem like a harmless condition, snoring can cause serious physical and emotional complications for patients and their partners. Snoring can cause bed partners to lose significant amounts of sleep and can be a constant source of arguing among couples. On the health front, snoring can be a sign of obstructive sleep apnea, which can cause breathing difficulties and high blood pressure.

There are many solutions available that claim to cure snoring, but many prove to be ineffective or only temporary. The Pillar® Procedure is a simple, minimally invasive procedure that is clinically proven to effectively treat snoring and obstructive sleep apnea.

Snoring is caused by a vibration of tissue in the upper airway. Doctors believe that the soft palate plays a major role in most cases of chronic snoring. The Pillar Procedure places three tiny implants into the soft palate to gradually stiffen it and keep it from constantly vibrating.
This is done through a one-time, minimally invasive procedure that takes about 20 minutes in your doctor’s office. The procedure does not remove any tissue and is typically painless with a very low risk of complication. The implants that are used are tiny and safe; most patients report them being unnoticeable within the palate.

Over 30,000 people worldwide have been treated with the Pillar Procedure. Most patients and their bed partners reported a decrease in the frequency and intensity of snoring. Satisfaction has been documented at 80% or higher and results remained effective after a yearly follow-up.The Pillar Procedure is a safe procedure with proven results that can bring peace and quiet to you and your partner, and help restore a good night’s sleep. The procedure is reversible as well. Talk to your doctor today to find out if you are one of the many people who can benefit from the Pillar Procedure.
