Clinical Interests
My clinical and research interest is in the management of obstructive sleep apnea and snoring, particularly in people who are unable to tolerate CPAP but are looking for other options. Sleep impacts all facets of our lives, and if obstructive sleep apnea is not allowing you to get quality sleep, this has impacts on your overall health and well-being, as well as on your daytime performance and energy level. I offer the full spectrum of options for sleep apnea and snoring, from minimally-invasive approaches like Inspire Upper Airway Stimulation and the Pillar Procedure to complex surgeries to address the areas causing apneas.

Care Philosophy
I am committed to providing outstanding, comprehensive, and state-of-the-art patient care while advancing sleep apnea and snoring surgery through innovation and research. High-quality, healthy sleep is so impactful on leading a happier, healthier life, and it is my goal to provide each of my patients with a personalized treatment plan that will achieve better sleep for both them and their loved ones.
