hello there. CPAP is the best treatment available. if he is not comfortable with it or if it doesn't work for him, you could opt for surgery. the surgery depends on where the exact obstruction occurs. it could be a multilevel surgery also if the obstruction is at multiple levels. kindly consult your ENT surgeon for further help on this topic. regards
