The Pillar Procedure

The Pillar Procedure is a simple, in-office treatment that helps you stop snoring. It can be performed in as little as 20 minutes, right in our office. And most patients return to normal eating and activities immediately. Dr. Krueger has been one of the leading providers of Pillars in the state of Washington. He started placing them in 2007 and has enjoyed excellent clinical success with them.

What Is The Pillar Procedure?

The Pillar Procedure is an FDA-approved, minimally invasive treatment for snoring and mild to moderate sleep apnea. During the procedure, small woven implants are placed in the soft palate, stiffening the palate and reducing vibration that can cause snoring.

  • Patients experienced a significant decrease in snoring intensity
  • Bed partner satisfaction has been documented at 80% or better
