Now offering consults for Inspire therapy
This therapy is designed for patients with moderate to severe obstructive sleep apnea 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 stimulation to key muscles to keep your airway open during sleep.
Initial consultation visits are available at Longs Peak Hospital through Dr. Kelli Janata and if it is determined that you could be a candidate for Inspire therapy, you will be referred to University of Colorado Hospital for a clinic visit with Dr. Katherine Green then a drug-induced sleep endoscopy (DISE) at Broomfield Hospital, which is a test where a flexible telescope is inserted through the nose to figure out where the obstruction is happening during sleep.
Inspire therapy is performed as an outpatient procedure at Broomfield Hospital and any follow-up visits post-procedure can be done at Longs Peak Hospital.
