Snoring is a very common sleep disorder, which occurs more often in men than women and in overweight individuals. Occasional snoring is more often a nuisance than an alarm, but regular snoring disrupts the sleep patterns of the snorer as well as the snorer's bed partner.
Some patients who snore have a more serious medical condition known as obstructive sleep apnea. Only an evaluation from one of our sleep experts can determine the difference between snoring and sleep apnea. Once a medical condition is ruled out, our experts may recommend any of the following to reduce or eliminate snoring:
Laser-assisted uvula palatoplasty (LAUP)
