Temperature Controlled Radiofrequency of the Tongue

TCRF applied to the tongue has been shown to improve the RDI; however, the results have varied (117,118). While RF may have a role as primary therapy for mild SDB or UARS, we consider this to be an adjunctive therapy for most patients. RF is minimally invasive and can be performed in the office. Many patients will require multiple treatments. Thus, therapy can be extended over several months. However, this protocol is intended to prevent complications associated with delivering large amounts of energy to the tongue.

Complications are extremely uncommon and are similar to those of other sites treated with RF. If performed properly, this procedure is safe and offers promising outcomes for patients.
