Surgery is usually considered only if other therapies haven't been effective or haven't been appropriate options for you. Surgery is usually a last resort solution for some patients.
Examples of possible surgical options might include tonsillectomy, uvulopalatopharygoplasty (UPPP), or implantation with an electronic device such as a hypoglossal nerve stimulator. These treatments have varying degrees of success. Speak with your physician to discuss whether or not you might be a candidate for a surgical option.
