He needs to consult a Sleep Apnoea Surgeon( an ENT Specialist with experience in managing Sleep Apnoea).
Sleep Apnoea is a very dangerous condition where the loud snoring is due to airway obstruction leading to high BP, Obesity, Heart Disease(not responding to regular cardiology medication), Chest burns, daytime sleepiness and if not treated in time can be life threatening.
