New Webpage on Coblation Palatoplasty for Snoring

A new webpage has been created describing coblation palatoplasty which is used to treat snoring and mild obstructive sleep apnea. Some of the advantages of this procedure are:

1) Outpatient
2) No sedation needed
3) Takes 15 minutes to perform
4) Performed in an office-setting instead of operating room
5) Well-tolerated

The ideal patient to undergo this procedure are those with large and thick soft palates. As such, not all patients are candidates to undergo this innovative procedure.
