Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPPP) for Sleep Apnea VIDEO




UPPP or uvulopalatopharyngoplasty is the "traditional" surgical procedure to help address obstructive sleep apnea in adult patients.

The original UPPP video depicted actual live surgery, but due to the rated R nature, many patients and families were unable to tolerate viewing... but still wanted a video to better understand what happens during a UPPP procedure. Given numerous requests for a sanitized and PG version of this surgery to help resolve obstructive sleep apnea in adults, I finally had the opportunity to create one here.
