Option 2: Surgery

Surgery is always the last option for treating sleep apnea.  Surgery, compared to other treatments, has a much smaller success rate than our other options.  The most popular form of surgery involves the removal of the uvula (the piece of tissue that hangs down from the roof of your mouth) and a portion of the soft palate.  It does not sound pleasant and the healing is not comfortable.  We would advise against this option as being a first line of treatment.
