Sleep Apnea & Snoring Center in Manhattan, NY
The Sleep Apnea & Snoring Center at Madison ENT was established to diagnose and treat adult and pediatric patients suffering from sleep disorders. Sleep apnea and snoring are disorders that occur as a result of obstruction in a patient’s upper airway (nasal cavity and throat).
Patients with sleep apnea or snoring complaints are fully evaluated. The doctor will examine the mouth, nose, and throat to help identify areas of obstruction in the upper airway leading to reduced airflow during sleep. These areas of reduced airflow, if surgically corrected, may potentially resolve snoring or mild sleep apnea.
Sleep Services and Treatment
Obstructive Sleep Apnea
A common condition that occurs when throat muscles relax, which can be cured with behavior therapy, devices or surgery.
Central & Complex Sleep Apnea
Occurs when muscles that control breathing do not receive the proper signals from the brain.
Snoring is caused when air cannot flow through the back of the throat and the nose freely, and there are a variety of treatments.
Sleep studies help determine whether sleep apnea is present and to what degree. After patients are fully evaluated, the best treatment option is discussed.
