Snoring is often very disruptive for patients and partners. Mr Lale looks at a range of causes for snoring including surgery.
An outpatient assessment will reveal the likely causes. If there is evidence of sleep apnoea then a sleep study may be required.
Surgery available for snoring includes unblocking of the nose (septoplasty and reduction of the turbinates), and surgery to the throat (tonsillectomy and palatoplasty).
