Sleep Apnea Surgery

The majority of people are not overly concerned about their own snoring. Most tend to go years without knowing they snore unless their bed partner complains. However, loud snoring coupled with daytime sleepiness may be an indication of sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a fairly common condition that can be potentially very serious. Individuals suffering from sleep apnea repeatedly stop and start breathing during sleep, leading to chronic sleep deprivation.

Sleep deprivation results in sleepiness during the day, poor concentration, sluggish reflexes, and increased risk for accidents. Sleep apnea can lead to serious health problems over time like high blood pressure, stroke, diabetes, heart disease, and weight gain. However, with proper treatment from a Corsicana oral and facial surgeon like Dr. Medel, your symptoms can significantly improve.
