“We just had this procedure, the Pillar Procedure, and I think that’s going to maybe fix it. We’ve been very happy with how it’s worked out. It’s relatively painless. I certainly don’t feel it right now, at all. And it’s had a great effect on everything.”

Dan and Pam Starkey, Minneapolis, Minnesota

“I know that the Pillar implants worked because, number one, through this third sleep study which was after I had the implants, my snoring was 50 percent less than what it was and the sleep apnea was gone.”

“A year ago, I was snoring; I was subjected to these periodic sore throats. My kids teased me relentlessly. And now, I’m so happy because I don’t have any of these issues concerning the snoring. Since the Pillar implants, I’ve been basically snore free, sore throat free, and my kids are now teasing me about others things, not the snoring.”

Perry Myers, Evanston, Illinois

“Things have been a real success, I’m sleeping great, energy level is awesome, and I’m very happy I did it.”

Joseph McInerney, Chicago, Illinois

“I feel a lot better. I think the first indicator that I was doing better was the first time I had a dream. It was about a month after the procedure. I have not had a dream in years, years. And I woke up the next morning I thought, ‘Boy, that was the weirdest dream.’ And I was like, ‘That was the weirdest dream, I had a dream!'”

Phyllis Gernhardt, Fort Wayne , Indiana

Pam: “I am so glad that he has found something that seems to work.”

Dan: “Yeah, I think this is working really well, so far. It’s been maybe a month and a half, a little more than that. And it started working better almost immediately. They told me when it was installed that it takes about 60 days for it to have full effectiveness, and we’re coming up on that. And you know, I think this might be it. Wouldn’t that be cool?”
