About The Snoring Center
Craig Schwimmer, MD, MPH, FACS : Founder & Medical Director
Dallas, Houston, and Austin, TX
Dr. Schwimmer is a Board Certified Otolaryngologist (Head and Neck Surgeon). A 1991 graduate of the Emory University School of Medicine, he completed his otolaryngology training at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, Michigan, studying under some of the leading clinicians and scientists in the field of snoring and sleep apnea. He has co-authored numerous articles on the subject, including pioneering work on the relationship between obstructive sleep apnea and gastroesophageal reflux. After six years of residency training, he practiced in Baltimore, Maryland, where he was also a member of the teaching faculty at Johns Hopkins University and actively involved in training otolaryngology residents. Since 2001, he has practiced in Dallas, where he founded The Snoring Center.
We understand that snoring is more than just a nuisance. From lack of sleep, to high blood pressure, and relationship problems, it can have serious physical and psychological effects on the snorer and those around them. We can help.
As an ENT doctor, Dr. Craig Schwimmer has taken care of people suffering from snoring and sleep apnea for close to 20 years. Overwhelmingly, what he saw in his patients was a shared sense of frustration.
- Frustrated with doctors who didn’t understand that “just snoring” was a real problem in their lives.
- Tired of sleeping in separate bedrooms or feeling exhausted during the day.
- Discouraged by the lack of treatment options that were available to them.
Armed with new minimally invasive treatments for snoring and sleep apnea as well as being inspired by the relief he was able to provide patients, Dr. Schwimmer created The Snoring Center.
Dr. Schwimmer based The Snoring Center’s unique approach upon a few simple beliefs:
- You have the right to understand all your treatment options and choose those that are best for you.
- Treatment options are only as good as a your willingness to tolerate them.
- We do what makes the most sense for each individual patient.
- Invasive surgical treatments do not have a high enough success rate to justify their risk, expense or pain.
