What Is Sleep Apnea Surgery?
At Canyon View Ear, Nose & Throat, some of our obstructive sleep apnea patients may not experience relief with a CPAP machine that delivers pressurized oxygen through a nasal mask to limit breathing interruptions during sleep. Dr. Robert D. Pearson, our board-certified head and neck surgeon who also specializes in sleep medicine, offers a surgical option to help remedy your disrupted sleep and low blood oxygen levels. An alternative to CPAP, Inspire® works inside the body while you sleep. The small device is placed during a same-day, outpatient surgical procedure.
Our medical team provides a thorough examination and diagnosis of your sleep apnea. Dr. Pearson will explain your options in more detail and recommend a customized treatment plan based on your needs. If you would like to learn more, please call our Cedar City, UT office, and set up an appointment today.
How Does Sleep Apnea Surgery Work?
Inspire surgery is a great alternative if you have moderate to severe obstructive sleep apnea or struggle with or can’t get consistent benefits from a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machine. Dr. Pearson will examine your most recent sleep study and CPAP report to determine if more tests and studies are needed. He will also ask you about your struggles using CPAP and other sleep-related topics, such as prescription sleep medication, sleep anxiety, or insomnia.
