Starting January 2013, I began offering a new treatment through my affiliation with Sleep Apnea Treatment Centers of America. I have been performing this procedure in the Statesboro office during normal business hours. This quick and effective in-office procedure is minimally invasive and has shown to cure those individuals suffering from mild to severe obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). 98% of patients are at least improved. This procedure allows many patients to get rid of their CPAP for good!
Sleep apnea is a serious condition that opens the door for other life-threatening conditions when untreated. These risks include hypertension, store cardiovascular disease, buy stroke, diabetes, and depression. Car accidents are even associated with sleep apnea! Unfortunately, the vast number of patients with this condition are undiagnosed. Of the ones who are identified with a sleep study, less than half are adequately controlled with a CPAP machine. I am very excited to give my patients a proven and potentially curative, office-based option for the treatment of sleep apnea.
Please do not hesitate to call the office number (912-681-7368) if you are interested in learning more about this treatment option or scheduling an appointment. It is currently covered by both Medicare and United Health Care.
