Don’t just treat the symptoms of Obstructive Sleep Apnea. Snoring and sleep apnea sufferers have historically had little available in the way of treatments that deal with the causes of their condition; often sleep apnea treatment options focus on relieving the symptoms, but don’t necessarily address the root cause. One of the most common treatments for sleep apnea is CPAP, or “continuous positive airway pressure”; this treatment while effective for many, often has compliance rates of less than 40%. Non-compliance leads to ineffective treatment of the condition, and little relief for many that find CPAP cumbersome & difficult to use correctly, consistently.
The in-office VOAT procedure is very quick, and requires minimal sedation, with some procedures lasting as little as 30 seconds.
The newly patented VOAT procedure is an innovative treatment for sleep apnea that can correct the initial cause of the problem, and 80% of the patients improve.(1) Many no longer require use of CPAP at all. Those that do still require CPAP improve an average of 75%.(1)
A Quick Recovery Time
The VOAT™ surgery was developed by the staff of Sleep and Sinus Centers of Georgia, with Dr. Dillard performing this minor sleep apnea surgery over 500 times. VOAT™ works by reducing the size of the base of the tongue. It is an improvement to the existing RFA treatment for sleep apnea.
Due to the ease of application and quick patient recovery times, the VOAT™ is offered in-office. Most patients even return to work the following day! What VOAT patients had to say after the procedure. The surgery is covered by many insurance carriers.
