Are My Tonsils Making Me Snore?

Every morning your partner greets you with a not-so-subtle reminder of how your snoring is ruing their sleep. You’ve tried everything from adjusting your sleep position to different pillows, and you still get kicked out of your room. If your snoring has you at your wit’s end, there may be a little-known culprit that makes […]

Is Balloon Sinuplasty Permanent?

Balloon sinuplasty is a minimally invasive medical procedure used to treat recurring sinus infections and […]

Sleep Apnea

Sleepy man with insomnia

What Sleep Apnea Can Do to You

It’s estimated that 22 million Americans suffer from moderate to severe sleep apnea. That’s a hard number to get a fully accurate estimate of, however, because about 80 percent of those people don’t get treatment. Bad idea. Sleep apnea is a scary thing that most people think is the problem of “other people.” That’s right […]

Fortunately for your love life, Dr. Volpi can perform radiofrequency ablation of the tongue to shrink some of those tissues that are getting in the way of your airflow, causing your snoring. These are simple procedures Dr. Volpi […]

Addressing the Palate to End Snoring

At eos Sleep, Dr. Volpi helps our patients deal with all kinds of issues affecting their, or their partner’s sleep. Snoring is the main culprit, whether it is tied to sleep apnea or not.

Laser-Assisted Tonsil Ablation

Shrinking Rather Than Removing the Tonsils

In November’s blog we addressed tonsillectomies. While they were commonplace in the 1950, 67s, and 70s when children developed tonsillitis more than occasionally, today, ENT specialists like Dr. Volpi only resort to full removal of the tonsils when necessary. It’s no longer a go-to procedure. Plus, in adult patients tonsillectomies are no walk in the […]

When the Tonsils Need to Come Out

If you’re over 55, odds are you know someone who has had their tonsils out. It was a pretty common minor surgery back in the 50s, 60s, and 70s on kids who had a couple bouts of tonsillitis. A tonsillectomy was considered a good treatment for the infection and inflammation of tonsillitis. Today ENT doctors […]

Correcting a Deviated Septum

Our noses have many parts that we know little about. So, when we hear about a procedure such as a septoplasty, we return a blank look. Uh, what?  When a patient has a deviated septum that means the partition between their nostrils has issues and surgery is necessary to correct it — septoplasty.  Dr. Volpi […]

What’s the Deal with a Home Sleep Study?

It’s estimated that about 24 million Americans live with sleep apnea, but most have no idea they have it. But when the symptoms of sleep apnea such as daytime drowsiness and waking with a headache or a dry throat finally dictate attention, that’s when Dr. Volpi gets a call at eos Sleep.  Once Dr. Volpi […]

Snoring Stats

Snoring is commonplace, even though most of us don’t think we snore. Of course, our partners in the bed next to us beg to differ! Snoring is estimated to affect 57 percent of men and 40 percent of women in the U.S. It even occurs in about a quarter of all children.  While snoring is […]

Balloon Sinuplasty, eOs blog

How Does Balloon Sinuplasty Work?

The sinuses are interconnected cavities in the skull that are normally filled with air. Their walls are lined with mucus-secreting membranes. Hairs in those membranes sweep out the mucus so it can drain out of your nose. But when those membranes become inflamed or infected, they block the nasal passages, keeping the fluid from draining. […]

Sleep Apnea Can Be Serious Business

Everyone snores from time to time, although each of us denies that fact any time the issue is raised, with some disdain, by our partner sleeping next to us. Snoring occurs when air flows past relaxed tissues in your throat, causing the tissues to vibrate as you breathe. The result is the buzzsaw that is […]

Coblation® turbinate reduction, eOs blog

What are the Turbinates and Why Do I Care?

Beyond our sinuses and maybe our septum, most people have little more knowledge of the anatomy of their nose. As such, they can’t tell if they simply snore sometimes or if they actually suffer from sleep apnea.  One culprit is the nasal turbinates. When the turbinates are overly large, whether due to inflammation or simple […]

Maybe You Only Need an Oral Appliance

Sleep apnea is a serious condition that many people don’t take seriously. They think they simply snore at night, as everyone does at least occasionally. But sleep apnea is much more than snoring. Snoring is caused by some impingement of the airway by sagging skin, congestion, and other issues. The vibration of the tissue creates […]
