What is a uvulectomy & how does it work?
The uvula is the tissue that hangs at the back of the throat. If it’s too large it can vibrate while you’re breathing at night which can produce snoring. At ADVENT, the Uvulectomy is a simple in-office procedure that reduces the size of the uvula by removing a portion of it. When the uvula is smaller, it vibrates less which is what causes snoring.
Why choose ADVENT for a uvulectomy?
