Advances in upper airway evaluation, along with the improved understanding of OSA phenotypes and evolving approaches to surgical techniques, have enabled targeted multi-level interventions for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). A variety of surgical techniques to address the nasal cavity, palate, oropharynx, hypopharynx, tongue, epiglottis and facial skeleton exist. Surgery has proven to be an effective treatment modality that reduces objective and subjective OSA measures as well as associated neurocognitive and cardiovascular morbidities.
