Sleep Apnea Surgery? H*LL No.

Screen Shot 2014-10-09 at 9.54.33 AMA family friend had surgery to cure his sleep apnea condition. It was a procedure to remove excess tissue from the soft palate and pharynx. Unfortunately, he had to suffer through recovery and his sleep apnea eventually returned. If that was me, I would have been pretty upset at the whole experience. I read an article on NPR that documented one person’s journey through Sleep Apnea surgery ( In the article, the sleep specialist was discussing the same surgery that my family friend went through and said “… patients need a series of surgeries to completely treat apnea. And even then, success rates aren’t high; they’re effective only 20 to 30 percent of the time.” At the end of the article, she said “noninvasive measures are always the first lines of defense”. I wonder if the patient mentioned in the article, Daniel Sheiner, is still Sleep Apnea free today?

At the extreme end of the scale, an article was published today about a young girl whose Sleep Apnea surgery went awry ( I hope this doesn’t happen very often. Whenever you have surgery, you are taking a risk that something may go horribly wrong.

Why go through something so painful when you can have restful sleep by doing a quick one (1) minute treatment? Read my free eBook ( for the non-surgical cure.
