Accurate Diagnosis. Precise Treatment.
Snoring is a sound produced when structures in your upper airway vibrate from turbulent airflow. In some instances, these structures can collapse and block airflow through the upper airway resulting in obstructive sleep apnea. In order to successfully treat your snoring and sleep apnea, we must first determine what structures are responsible for your symptoms.
To determine this, we perform an airway endoscopy on all of our patients. The airway endoscopy is an office examination performed in a few minutes and enables us to apply precise treatments to your specific needs.
