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.

What they don’t tell you about Electrical Stimulation Surgery for Sleep Apnea

Recently, I read an article that discussed using electrical stimulation to reduce sleep apnea by having a device implanted inside your body ( I don’t know about you but I really don’t want anything implanted inside my body. It is interesting that this new medical study used electrical stimulation. That is the same conclusion I caScreen Shot 2014-10-09 at 10.07.53 AMme to in early 2014. However, I used it in a different way and it didn’t require surgery. You never know what can happen even with routine procedures. Rest in Peace Joan Rivers.
