TracheostomyTracheostomy is the only surgical procedure with a 100% cure rate for obstructive sleep apnea. By placing a surgical airway in the neck, the entire upper airway is bypassed and obstructive events will not occur.

This is an advanced procedure and is reserved for select cases where patients are in immediate danger from the most severe OSA. These are patients who have failed nearly every medical/surgical option or have significant health problems that are uncontrolled due to their obstructive sleep apnea.
