HPCS' Obstructive Sleep Apnea Surgery Addresses the Root Cause of OSA

Houston, TX (PressExposure) May 04, 2012 -- Houston Plastic and Craniofacial Surgery, a recognized plastic surgery practice in Houston, Texas provides Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) surgery to effectively treat the root anatomic reason for night time airway blockage. The surgery would be performed by an expert plastic surgeon with the assistance of his experienced and capable support staff. This plastic surgeon has undergone professional training in Craniofacial and Sleep Surgery at Stanford University Medical Center. That is the very same place where a lot of surgical procedures for sleep apnea treatment were created. Safe treatments are available for men, women and children.

Surgical Solutions Provided

The center would carry out any of the following surgical solutions to open the airways and reduce airflow resistance:

• Tonsillectomy
• Hyoid myotomy
• Tracheostomy
• MMA (Maxillomandibular advancement)
• Genioglossus advancement
• UPPP (Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty)
• Distraction osteogenesis

The indications for these surgical solutions are the following:

• OSA with hypertension, heart arrhythmias or other co-existing medical diseases
• Unsuccessfulness of non-surgical treatment
• Excessive daytime sleepiness in spite of having a low Apnea-Hypopnea Index (AHI)
• Moderate to extreme OSA
• OSA with structure-associated airway defects

Based on the severity and characteristics of a particular patient's Obstructive Sleep Apnea condition, the center would devise a suitable treatment strategy. The surgical treatments offered at the center can do away with or at least reduce dependence on a CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) machine, the more common but inconvenient treatment for OSA. Other benefits of the surgical solutions include:

• Improved night time sleep
• More energy and enthusiasm in the daytime
• Better mood
