The Pillar Procedure®


The Pillar® Procedure is a simple, safe and effective treatment that is designed to help you stop snoring and, in many cases, help people suffering from obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). It's a relatively painless procedure that can be performed in a doctor's office in about 20 minutes, using only local anesthetic. More than 30,000 people worldwide have been treated with the Pillar® Procedure.

The Pillar® System is indicated for use in a) the reduction of symptomatic, habitual or social snoring caused by a flutter of tissue in the soft palate, and/or b) upper airway obstruction in patients with mild to moderate Obstructive Sleep Apnea or "OSA". The Pillar System is a minimally invasive implant that is used to stiffen the soft palate tissue to reduce the flutter that causes snoring and/or palatal obstruction of the upper airway.

The physicians of ENTC offer the Pillar® Procedure as an option to alleviate your snoring and help you get a good night's sleep. Patients interested in more complete information can go to the Pillar® System website.
