Breathing Easier After Epiglottis Surgery
The epiglottis is a structure next to the larynx (voice box) that helps keep food and liquids from entering the lungs. For some people, the epiglottis blocks breathing during sleep. This is usually diagnosed by a sleep doctor during a sleep study. An epiglottidectomy may be recommended to you for treatment.
If you have trouble breathing during sleep, due to sleep apnea , epiglottis surgery can help. During the procedure, our surgeons remove part of the epiglottis using a laser or other tools. Our minimally invasive techniques help you recover faster and with less chance of complications.
