Uvulopalatoplasty

A uvulopalatoplasty (UPP) is performed for symptoms of obstruction related to sleep apnea.  It includes removal of tissues including the uvula, soft palate, and the tonsils (if still present).  It is performed in a hospital setting under general anesthesia and requires a minimum of an overnight stay at which time you are closely monitored.
