Maxillomandibular Osteotomy (MMO)
Maxillomandibular osteotomy (MMO) is a surgical procedure that cuts the bones of both the upper and lower jaws in order to reconfigure the alignment of the jaw, generally by adding or removing a wedge of bone. It is used to correct jaw abnormalities, and in maxillomandibular advancement (MMA) surgery to treat obstructive sleep apnea.
Tracheotomy refers to an incision created in the front of the neck, through the trachea, through which a tube is inserted directly into the windpipe through this opening to remove fluid from the lungs and to facilitate breathing by moving oxygen directly to the lungs. A tracheotomy can be temporary or permanent, and is not synonymous with being on a ventilator.
Midline Glossectomy and the Llingualplasty
Midline glossectomy and lingualplasty is a surgical treatment for obstructive sleep apnea that reduces the size of the tongue. The tongue can enlarge with weight gain, making it obstructive to breathing during sleep. Midline glossectomy and lingualplasty removes portions of the middle and the back of the tongue.
Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPPP or UP3)
Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPPP or UP3) is a surgical treatment for obstructive sleep apnea. UPPP removes and/or rearranges tissue of the throat such as the uvula, soft palate, tonsils, adenoids, and pharynx to increase the size of the airway and allow for better airflow and breathing.
