Sleep Medicine Specialist Questions Obstructive Sleep Apnea

Does hyoid suspension surgery help sleep apnea?

I have very severe sleep apnea. I suffer from apneas over 90 times a hour. Does Hyoid suspension surgery really help? If not what other surgeries are there? I underwent a procedure in 2017 where they reduced the size of my tongue.

Pulls the hyoid up and forward in an attempt to open the airway more. You can research the success rate at PubMed.
