SLEEP APNEA SURGICAL OPTIONS
Dr. Gandolfi’s experience and techniques offer new treatment options for sleep apnea. In almost all patients, obstructions associated with sleep apnea can be reduced by surgically moving the jaws forward. This increases the air space within the mouth and the size of the passage way between the nose and the mouth. Dr. Gandolfi employs newer techniques that do not require wiring the jaw shut or braces.
Other surgeries offered by Dr. Gandolfi accomplish the same basic task: increasing the size of the airway and reducing obstructions. This may be accomplished by reducing the size of soft tissues within the nose, mouth, and throat.
Dr. Gandolfi is an experienced surgeon whose training in plastic surgery and specialized study of craniofacial surgery gives him unique insights into aesthetic results during surgical planning. Specialists throughout New Jersey and New York refer cases to Dr. Gandolfi and the Zubowski Center for Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery when mastery of both aesthetic and functional surgery is required.
