Cure Snoring & Sleep Apnea in a single office visit
You’re smart. You know that snoring isn’t helping your relationship, and that Sleep Apnea is a dangerous disease. You also know that most people simply can’t tolerate the CPAP mask. In fact, most studies suggest that fewer than 40% of people who try CPAP actually wear it regularly. And if CPAP isn’t worn regularly, it doesn’t help.
You may not know that over 50,000 people have come to the SnoringCenter for treatment that actually makes sense: minimally invasive, office based treatments. Instead of painful surgery or cumbersome devices, our Board Certified ENT physicians specialize in cutting edge treatment such as the Pillar Procedure, in-office turbinate reduction, laser tonsillectomy, and more.
CPAP simply isn’t a good solution for the majority of patients with sleep apnea. We understand that. That’s why we specialize in practical, patient-friendly alternatives. After all, a treatment is only as good a a patient’s willingness to use it.
Our doctors will perform a thorough examination of your nose and throat, identify your problem areas, and discuss treatment options that address your anatomy, as well as the severity of your disease. While vibration of the soft palate is estimated to be the cause of some 80% of snoring, patients with sleep apnea typically also have obstruction in the nasal airway and, quite often, the base of tongue. This fact is the basis for our minimally invasive, multi-level treatment approach: typically combining palatal stiffening (the Pillar Procedure) with other treatments, as indicated. Because Snoring Center doctors have so many tools at their disposal, we don’t rely on “one size fits all” approaches.
Our minimally invasive approach allows patients to get treated, and immediately return to normal activities – unlike traditional surgery, which can be quite painful and require lengthy recovery periods.
Over 50,000 patients (and their bed-partners) are sleeping better thanks to our minimally invasive, multi-level treatment approach. Call us to see if we can help you, too!
HOME SLEEP STUDIES
The Snoring Center was a pioneer in the use of home based sleep studies. Improved technology means that, instead of cumbersome and expensive lab-based testing, most people can be diagnosed in the comfort of home. Home sleep studies are far less expensive, much more convenient, and clearly preferred by patients.
We are in network with most commercial insurers, and work hard to maximize your insurance benefits. While many sleep apnea treatments are covered by insurance, snoring treatment typically is not (insurance considers snoring a social issue, not a health concern). While the Pillar Procedure is not covered by insurance, it is typically less expensive (and far less painful) than traditional surgical options – which is why so many patients prefer it.
All of our treatments can be paid for using flex-spending or health savings accounts. In addition, we partner with Care Credit to offer no-interest financing for our patients.
There’s No Such Thing as “Just Snoring”
If you’ve missed out on a good night’s sleep because of your snoring or your partner’s, you know how serious it is. From daytime sleepiness to depression, high blood pressure to diabetes, and difficulty losing weight to decreased sexual performance, lack of sleep hurts.
Our specially trained Ear, Nose and Throat doctors can provide a complete evaluation, consultation and treatment all in the same visit—typically in under an hour!
When a sleep study is indicated, we offer home-based sleep studies. These are an affordable, convenient alternative to traditional lab-based sleep studies.
The Snoring Center has offices in cities across the country, including Atlanta, Austin, Beverly Hills, Burnsville, Dallas, Edina, Houston, Lafayette, New York, Norwalk, and San Francisco.
