Our services include testing and care of your sleep issues. These are primarily geared towards sleep apnea and snoring, but can also prove beneficial for other types of sleep disorders.
Inspire Sleep Apnea Procedure
Inspire works while you’re sleeping to open your airways. It is implanted into the body during an outpatient procedure using two small incisions. When you’re ready for bed, you can turn the Inspire device on and enjoy a good night’s sleep.
AirLift™ for Sleep Apnea
AirLift™ uses sutures and suture anchors to elevate and suspend the hyoid bone closer to the jaw in order to keep the air pathways flowing freely. These sutures have been designed especially to help patients with sleep apnea.
CPAP Prescription & Monitoring
A CPAP (“continuous positive airway pressure”) machine is a device that is worn during sleep to help treat sleep apnea. In the United States, CPAP machines require a prescription to purchase. Our specialists will evaluate your symptoms and decide if the device is suitable for you. We will also help you understand and maintain your CPAP machine in order to use it for the best possible results.
Sleep Apnea Testing
Sleep apnea can have side effects such as snoring. Because of this, it can be difficult for one to tell if they have sleep apnea…or are just a heavy snorer. Our office provides a sleep study test at home or in the office to determine if you have sleep apnea. Patients will be asked to sleep while wearing a monitoring device that would indicate sleep apnea. Our providers will then review the results and make a determination.
Surgical Procedures for Sleep Apnea
For patients with sleep apnea who have not found success with other treatments, surgery may be the best option. There are a few types of sleep apnea surgeries that are designed to open the airways and make it easier for patients to breathe. There are also devices that can be surgically placed to help sleep apnea, including Inspire and AirLift™
