About Snoring

Surprisingly, most people are unaware that snoring can be treated successfully. Snoring is an uncomfortable symptom for many reasons: It disrupts family life and causes sleepless nights for you and the others around you.

Snoring can also disrupt normal sleep, thus preventing optimal rest. More seriously, it may be associated with a risky condition known as obstructive sleep apnea.

What is Snoring Laser Treatment?

The laser snoring treatment is a safe and effective option offered at our clinic under local anesthesia. During surgery, the patient is seated in a comfortable chair and remains fully awake. After locally anesthetizing the treated area, the CO2 laser – specially designed for this type of surgery – is used to ablate the uvula, cut and reshape the excess tissue.

This unique technique practiced by Dr. Korkis solves the problem in one sitting. However, in some cases, a second treatment is needed after 6 to 12 weeks. This treatment takes about 10 to 15 minutes.

What are the benefits of Laser Surgery?

The treatment of laser snoring is painless. However, a variable intensity sore throat may occur when the effects of local anesthesia dissipate. It usually lasts between 7 and 14 days and can be relieved with suitable painkillers given before and after treatment. We conduct the treatment at night to accommodate our patients’ work schedule. Usually, most of our patients are able to resume normal activities the next day. Dr. Korkis’ laser snoring treatment provides an immediate reduction of snoring with gradual improvement. In carefully selected patients, approximately 85% are cured. Another 12% reports a satisfactory reduction in the level of snoring.


Is Laser Surgery the right treatment for you?

As a certified ear nose and throat specialist with advanced training in laser surgery, Dr. Korkis is able to determine if you can benefit from laser treatment during your first consultation. However, additional tests may be necessary especially if obstructive sleep apnea is suspected. An appointment can be made at your convenience after the evaluation with Dr. Korkis.
