Sleep Disorders

Sleep Apnea Diagnosis And Treatment By Board-Certified Physicians

An old saying laments that "A sleepless night is as long as a year." Anyone suffering from a sleep disorder would relate to that sentiment. More than one-half of adults in the U.S. experience at least intermittent sleep disturbances. For most, it is an occasional night of poor sleep or daytime sleepiness. However, 15 to 20% of adults suffer from chronic sleep disturbance.

In addition to great frustration, clinical studies continue to demonstrate that a lack of sleep negatively impacts health. That includes our physical health and our mental health. At Paparella Ear, Head & Neck Institute, our board certified physicians are highly trained in treating sleep disorders.

Sleep Apnea
Medical studies have found additional adipose tissue around the neck makes the airway narrower, increasing the likelihood that obstructions can occur. Because of this, the American Sleep Apnea Association identifies weight loss as an effective treatment for sleep apnea. A weight loss of even 10% can reduce sleep apnea and increase sleep quality. Learn some simple, everyday weight loss tips which can improve how well you sleep.
Rhinoplasty, Septoplasty And Turbinoplasty
This nasal surgery corrects the external appearance of the nose while also improving breathing. It is typically an outpatient procedure done under general anesthesia. Learn more about what is involved in a rhinoplasty. The nasal septum divides the nose into two chambers and may become deviated to one side. Deviated septums may result from large turbinates, or walls between sinus cavity and the nasal passages. Learn about the turbinoplasty or septoplasty procedures to correct the problem.
