Sleep Surgery Research
Research in sleep surgery spans from the topics of upper airway stimulators, insomnia predictors and sleep hygiene education. Recent publications include tolerance of continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) after sinonasal surgery, comparison of traditional upper airway surgery and upper airway stimulation for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), and feasibility of early discharge after open hypopharyngeal surgery for dysphagia.
