Pillar Procedure Alternatives
Non-invasive Substitutes for Pillar Surgery
The pillar procedure works, but…
As of right now, the pillar procedure is unavailable at this date, as the inserts used in the procedure are not currently being manufactured. Luckily, new procedures work just as well (or better), with even less discomfort and less downtime. Like pillar surgery, Elevoplasty and radiofrequency (RF) treatments both stop airway obstruction caused by the palate. Elevoplasty lifts the palate; RF stiffens the palate, and they both do it without pillar inserts.
