Snoring and sleep apnea has become an increasingly rampant problem. The snoring and sleep apnea clinic was born out of a need to address this problem Snoring occurs because of some obstruction in the upper airway during sleep.
Sleep apnea occurs due to sudden stoppage of breathing during sleep. Prolonged sleep apnea can result in cardiovascular problems such as hypertension, increased risk of myocardial infarction. These patients need a thorough evaluation with endoscopy and sleep study. We perform a drug - induced sleep endoscopy (DISE) for patients of snoring and sleep apnea to determine the exact sites of obstruction in the airway. Treatment can be medical or surgical.
