Radiofrequency Ablation of the Tongue Base
Sleep Apnea Treatment Centers of America performs a highly advanced, minimally invasive radiofrequency ablation (RFA) procedure for treating and ideally curing Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) in 2013. The procedure takes place in a physician’s office over the course of five to eight treatments. Each treatment is 2-5 minutes long. All patients are able to drive themselves home or back to work immediately following the procedure. Radiofrequency Ablation is safe, effective and has shown to be a great alternative to CPAP.

The CPAP, or Continuous Positive Airway Pressure treatment, offers an alternative to the Radiofrequency Ablation treatment of sleep apnea but can also be used in conjunction with the RFA treatment to obtain optimal results. In choosing this method, patients wear a mask over their nose while sleeping to treat obstructive sleep apnea. The primary function of the CPAP device is to prevent the airway restriction that can prompt episodes of sleep apnea. The upper airway is held open through a pressurized stream of air that is filtered through the mask. Adjustments can be made to ensure that your CPAP mask fits comfortably and that air pressure is delivered evenly.

Cigarette smoking, obesity, and sedentary lifestyles are just some of the factors known to increase the likelihood and severity of sleep apnea. Eliminating or reducing these risk factors will substantially decrease the presence and severity of sleep apnea in most individuals. Click to learn more about our Sleep Apnea Treatment Options.
