Sleep conditions and our treatments for them
Many people aren’t able to use, or get consistent benefits for, their obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) by wearing a CPAP mask. If your CPAP mask is not working for you, we offer surgical treatment options to help you sleep better at night without it.
This therapy is designed for patients with moderate to severe OSA who haven’t had success with CPAP. Inspire consists of a breathing sensor and stimulator with a small battery that’s surgically implanted and delivers a mild electrical charge to key muscles to keep your airway open during sleep.
For OSA patients with documented CPAP failure, sleep surgery may be an option. We do a comprehensive airway evaluation to pinpoint where the obstruction is happening, and then offer a personalized approach to determine if surgery is right for you.
Watch our recorded seminar to learn about sleep apnea treatment options and Inspire therapy.
