New Snoring Surgery Promises Relief

Sleep Soundly Tonight: New Surgery May Cure Snoring

Sharing a bedroom with a snoring partner can be unbearable. I know a couple that keeps separate bedrooms simply because the husband snores so loudly his wife can't make it through a night without waking up. A new study looking at the long-term effects of the snoring surgery says that radiofrequency ablation (RFA) may be the hope that this couple and so many others have been looking for.

The study shows that after two treatments snoring became less severe in patients, and that 76 percent of the study's participants were still satisfied three years later. The surgery uses heat to shrink soft palate tissue that may be obstructing a snorer's airway.

Do any of you sleep next to a snorer — how do you deal with it?
