The most important factor causing sleep apnea is that the soft tissues in the base of the tongue and upper larynx slide backward during sleep and obstruct the upper airway.
The best surgical treatment for these patients is robotic sleep apnea surgery. It is very difficult to reach this area with normal methods. With the Da Vinci Robot, the problematic area can be easily reached through the mouth, and the soft tissues that cause obstruction in this area are sensitively cleaned under a three-dimensional and enlarged endoscopic vision. Patients stay in the hospital for one night and are discharged the next day. It is a method with a very high success rate.
